PSI - Horizonte. 1977 Germany

PSI's sole album was released smack dab in the middle of the Kraut fusion boom of the late 1970s. The album definitely evokes Kraan, Munju, RMO, Missus Beastly, etc... Apparently PSI impressed someone high up, as their sole album was on the high profile Bacillus label, besting many of the private presses of the era. For me, there are a couple of things that separate PSI from the pack. One is the fantastic rhythm section, propelling the tracks forward at an exciting rate. The other is the terrific production. Clearly a big budget was behind the recording. Recommended to fusion fans who enjoy a high amount of melodic content.

LP: 1977 Bacillus

In 2017, the upstart Polish label Chickadisc reissued this on CD. I haven't obtained it yet, but probably will eventually.
