Amon Düül - Paradieswarts 1970

Amon Düül - Paradieswarts 1970 [rep 1997]


This album is a series of lengthy monotonous jams that have less focus than the best Amon Düül II material (which shouldn't be much of a shock considering that the other four albums released by the original Amon Düül were recorded at a single epic improvised session!). This is moderately enjoyable in its own right, although I find it to be insufficiently creative (no doubt the minimalist compositions have to do with the fact that everything is improvised). Those with low levels of tolerance for the more rambling hippieish moments that Quintessence, Hawkwind and indeed Amon Düül II have given us, should certainly steer well clear of this.

- And or Christian "Shrat" Thierfeld / bongos ?
(On the Ohr vinyl art is write; "Chris: Bongos" and not Christian or even Shrat.....)

Note; ..../...."Paramechanische Welt" bears more than a passing resemblance to "Sandoz in the Rain" off Amon Duul II's Yeti. I guess that's little surprise because Amon Duul II's Chris Karrer and John Weinzierl make an appearance on this cut. It was basically in exchange for two of the Amon Duul I members appearing on "Sandoz in the Rain" (it's the closest thing to Amon Duul I that Amon Duul II ever did)
