Hard burning jazz rock splendor from one of Germany's masters of the game (and a relatively unheralded one at that), many of who's other titles, both solo and or as part of Association/
Association P.C. and Electric Circus I've posted elsewhere on MS. In my recent post of Joachim Kuhn's Cinemascope LP, I'd failed to recall that the line-up of on that stellar album was almost exactly the same as the one here, the only difference being that legendary jazz rock all-star saxophonist Charlie Mariano (Embryo, Supersister...endless others) takes the guest seat here in place of Zbigniew Siefert and this is absent the orchestral shadings lent by Kuhn's brother Rolf and the orchestra he conducted. Instead, the focus of Spider's Dance is the taut chemistry between Blanke, Joachim Kuhn's dense, coloristic key clusters and vamps and the ferocious boil of American expats John Lee and Jerry Brown on bass and drums respectively. An integral piece of the Krautrock canon and one of Toto's finest hours. Not to be missed!
