Unreleased studio takes from 1969 recordings by these Krautrock legends. 180 gram vinyl-also includes bonus region free DVD! Limited to 1,000 copies worldwide."The year was 1968. We were playing, practising and experimenting every single day until late into the night in a basement in the heart of the city of Zürich. We were determined to follow our own musical path. Meanwhile, Serge Meier was setting up his recording studio on the outskirts of town. The generous financial offer from the cigarette company was too good to refuse. We bought ourselves the amplifiers we needed and recorded our first single, 'Camel Is Top,' with him. This also led-in the spring of 1969-to the recordings that we are now releasing to the public for the very first time. Teddy Meier, EMI Switzerland's A&R man, travelled to Munich with the tapes and handed them to the renowned producer Siegfried E. Loch. This paved the way for our band's first recording sessions in Germany for the American Liberty label. When the 1968 generation took to the streets, armed with Mao's Little Red Book, we were on a completely different trip. On the road with a sitar, violin, tambourine and harmonica, the beat, the bass, rhythm and blues, guitars and a keyboard, the congas and drums, we made our own music. Krokodil Music!"The bonus DVD contains his exciting account of the Krokodil story. For this definitive issue, Krokodil band leader Düde Dürst has assembled photos and film material painstakingly collected over many years.
