Aera - Turkis. 1979 Germany


Turkis is Aera's 3rd album, where the band veers into funky fusion territory, similar to other German bands of the era like Kraan and Release Music Orchestra. Fuzz bass, organ, and extra percussion keep it a bit interesting anyway. Not the highlight of their catalog for certain. Best track is the 3 part suite 'Dracula' which mixes haunting organ with a late 70s midnight spacey vibe. Title track is pretty good as well. Watch out for tracks like 'You Need Some Speed' and 'Siebert' that are a bit generic in that Sanford & Son theme sort of way...
