CONTACT TRIO-NEW MARKS, LP, 1978, GERMANY



New Marks is the beatifically beautiful second album (thanks to the person who corrected me on the comment board) from this unique German trio who occupy a slippery terrain between a sort of fluidly wistful folk-inflected jazz rock style on one end (think Steve Tibbetts or Yves Laferriere) and a distinctive low key wandering improv M.O. on the other, which you could locate somewhere between Confluence and Billy Bang, though often rendered in a delightfully stoned fashion that gives this a distinct krautrock gravitas of a post-Dzyan sort.

Eric,

just letting you know that the RS link for this post is currently:

The Mega link is correct.

Keep up the good work. Generosity of your sort is excellent at any volume/rate.

This was their second LP. There is a decent write-up about their first one on:

(no uploads there, though).

The music's closer to Association PC or the Swiss OM, rather than Confluence.

Mystery Poster put Double Face up a while back. The link is here:

There seems to be three links there, at least one must still work.
