Swoon inducing orchestrated cosmic krautrock fusion with disco-ish underpinnings which I somewhat rashly used as a reference point for Joachim Kuhn's Cinemascope album that I posted recently (and whose similarity ends with the combination of fusionoid and orchestrated moves). One of the most elusive and forgotten of Krautrock masterpieces, This album by saxophonist Nowy is usually cited (when at all) for it's Amon Duul 2 connection, courtesy of guest appearances here from both Lothar Meid and sitarist Al Gromer. Usually left unmentioned is that Lucifer's Dream prominently features keyboard contributions from one Sylvester Levai (ne Levay) who, prior to this would record another krautrock masterpiece opposite Dzyan's Eddie Marron in Vita Nova and then, post Lucifer's Dream, score one of the biggest hits of the disco era with "Fly, Robin Fly" (and then continue on to score one trashy 80's Hollywood flick after another). The soaring stoned-immmaculate fusion netherworld that these folks inhabit doesn't exist sui generis. Lucifer's Dream glances off contemporaneous moves by their krautrock brethren, among them Brave New World, Amon Duul 2 circa "De Guadaloop" from Hijack and Wolfgang Dauner circa both The Oimels and his work on the eponymous first Et Cetera album, but the particular way that Nowy & co. negotiate the slippery dream logic of this lost continent of jazz rock genius is purely unprecedented. Godhead.
