Gäa - Auf der Bahn zum Uranus. 1974 Germany

Musically, Gäa can be described a spacey rock band that sings in German. It's not really cosmic Krautrock, nor is it full blown complex progressive rock. The first track 'Uranus' is by far the best (IMO), but is somewhat misleading considering the rest. In that way I was reminded of My Solid Ground. I see Gäa as the precursor to the late 70s German progressive movement such as Indigo, Minotaurus, Albatros and many others.

Personal collection
CD: 1992 Ohrwaschl
LP: 2011 Garden of Delights

Original LPs have always been off the charts expensive, and with a cover and title like this, it's not surprising that collectors worldwide are clamoring for it. The Ohrwaschl CD is a straight reissue, though housed nicely in a digi-pak. The LP from Garden of Delights features a full biography, as well as a new mastering of the tapes.
