Amon Duul - Paradieswarts Duul (1970)

Amon Düül was a German political art commune which became well-known for its free form musical improvisations.

The album is constituted of three long tracks, one filling the whole side one
of the LP , although this is a cd version, and it is my favourite one : Love is Peace is an overlong electric
folk song with a clear melodic structure and a certain complexity
in songwriting , a very interesting track. The guitar textures plus
various sound effects build up a ghastly atmosphere in
the middle section, and after that the rigid song structure dilates to host a
tense but limp acoustic jam.

1. Love Is Peace (17:13)
2. Snow Your Thirst and Sun Your Open Mouth (9:28)
3. Paramechanische Welt (7:38)
4. Eternal Flow (4:10)
5. Paramechanical World (5:44)

Enjoy ! ! !

The Shiver - Walpurgis (1969)

The Shiver are for sure the most renowned psychedelic band of Switzerland.
Their one and only LP "Walpurgis" is legendary and hardly affordable.

My favourite song from this album is "Repent Walpurgis" which comes from a so-called split single from 1968.

01. Repent Walpurgis
02. Ode To The Salvation Army
03. Leave This Man Alone
04. What's Wrong About The Blues
05. Hey Mr. Holy Man
06. Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood
07. No Time
08. The Peddle

Enjoy ! ! !
