Amos Key - First Key. 1973 Germany

Amos Key - First Key. 1973 Spiegelei

CD reissue: 2016 Long Hair

LP reissue: 2016 Long Hair

Amos Key, from Munich, are a high energy classically based organ driven progressive rock trio like Trace, ELP, Trikolon, and a host of Italian bands who were similarly influenced. I keep expecting Long Hair to ultimately reissue this LP*, especially considering they've already issued a fantastic archival album from the same era (Keynotes: The Lost Tapes SWF Session 1973). This is bread and butter progressive rock, which gives you the nutrients needed, without any sinful decadence (a little of that would have been nice actually...)

*And indeed they did! As soon as the CD becomes available here in the States, I'll likely pick it up.

The LP comes in a fine gatefold with a cartoon and band photos in the inner part.
