Ibliss - Supernova. 1972 Germany


Ibliss are a superb ethnic jazz rock band with psychedelic flute, percussion and guitar. Music can best be described as moody / atmospheric mixed with heavy jamming. A bit like classic Embryo, as found on Rocksession, but more loose and free.

Personal collection
CD: 2009 Garden of Delights

Way back in the 1980s, I found a brand new copy of this LP in a record store for about $5. I couldn't wait to bring it home with a cover like that! But I didn't like it. I wasn't quite ready then for what we now call "Kraut Fusion". And I traded it to a dealer friend shortly thereafter (he gave me a fair price for the era). I regret it now, but I was still new to record collecting. But the good news is that we finally received a wonderful CD reissue from Garden of Delights. And so I now own this copy and maybe one day I'll splurge for another original LP. The CD features great sound, liner notes and photos. No bonus tracks for this one though (which is rare for GoD). Which means, of course, there aren't any extra tracks to be found I'm sure.
