Pyramid - S/T, 1976, Germany
This is another one of those recently recovered long-lost Kraut albums that makes you wonder how anyone would forget about such a great album in the first place. Unfortunately, it's also one of those long-lost Kraut albums which no one seems to know a damn thing about. This is all Forced-Exposure writes up:
Three more albums of "unknown" Krautrock from the early to mid 70s, from the Pyramid label archive. Pyramid features one 36 minute track, produced by "personnel unknown" on instrumentation of: Hammond organ, electric guitar, bass, drums, mellotron, mini-Moog, electric piano, and Tibetan bells. It's a long cosmic journey, etc.
It's not even on the net version of Crack in the Cosmic Egg.
Nonetheless, it's a lost classic, originally appearing on 8daysinapril, the king of Krautrock, so you know it's gotta be good! I'm not an expert on writing prog/kraut reviews, so I'll just let you form an opinion for yourself...
