Frankie Dymon Jr.-Let It Out,LP,1971,Germany



Fantstic and rare German psych Kraut LP,appeared about a year ago in Mystery Poster blog(THANK YOU MATE!).A friend of the blog asked me for reposting it since MP link was dead.Meanwhile MP re-up it recently....but what the hell ...this item's got to be known by as many people as possible.
"This was a kind of 'project' album led by Frank Dostal and Achim Reichel, previously members of The Rattles, one of the most well-known German beat groups, and Wonderland. Reichel wrote most of the songs and produced the album (engineering was by a certain Konrad Plank). Most of Reichel's then backing band also took part in the recordings: Rolf Kohler (bass), Norbert Jacobsen (clarinet), Lemmie Lembrecht (percussion) and Helmut Franke (percussion). Additional musicians were Wolfgang "Zabba" Lindner (drums, ex-Wind), Peter Hecht (piano, from Lucifer's Friend), Elga Blask (vocals) and Olaf Casalich (congas). Also strings were dubbed on at certain places. Let It Out (1971) comprised a great variety of styles, perhaps ending up a little over-involved. Those of you who know the early Achim Reichel albums will know what to expect here! There were certainly many tracks to enjoy here, like "Aftermyth", an 11 minute track with manipulated electric guitar and awkward anti-war and anti-racism lyrics. Many of the tracks had very unusual arrangements. It's the sort of album that sounds better after several spins. The psychedelic cover art, recalling the Ikarus album on Plus, was also notable. In the same year, Dostal and Reichel also made another complex, but vastly different project album together, this time as "Wonderland Band". Dostal and Reichel have produced countless albums over the years. "
So guys got to Mystery Poster and grab it as soon as possible or get it here (analternative link since MP's links seem to "die" very quickly)

Thanks for the Frankie Dymon Jr. I really enjoy exploring Achim Reichel's early 70's stuff, too bad he sucked so bad later. Do you happen to have Wonderlandband No. 1?
