Artist: BETWEEN
Title: And The Waters Opened
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $28.00
"Formed in 1970 in Munich, Between was an international band devoted to explore the spaces existing between (hence the name) disparate musical currents: from ancient music to avant garde from Western classical to Eastern musics, from medieval to pop music in a fresh approach that perfectly fitted the experimentation dominating the early 70s German music scene. Whereas many of their contemporaries favoured the introduction of electronic elements, Between relied mostly on purely acoustic sounds, albeit so distorted they would pass as electronic. Roberto Detrees self-made motocello was a constant source of other-wordly sonorities which permeated many of the bands compositions. Add to this Peter-Michael Hamels Indian-influenced systemic organ minimalism and Cotch Blacks hypnotical percussion and youll get Betweens sound in a nut-shell. A mystical vision not removed from that of their contemporaries Popol Vuh that predated much of the new-age, meditation and world-music fusions that would blossom in the 80s. Originally released by Vertigo in 1973 and housed in a colourful psychedelic sleeve by Guntram Holdgrün, this is often regarded as Betweens most exotic and beautiful opus. A huge, majestic droning masterpiece with oriental nuances that might recall Popol Vuh, Fripp & Eno or Taj Mahal Travellers. Classic album from the early German 70s scene that deserves to be rediscovered by a wider audience. With Roberto C. Detrée (guitar, motocello, adapted harp), Robert Eliscu (oboe, oboe damore), Peter Michael Hamel (keyboards, vocals), Cotch Black (percussion) plus Duru Omson (bamboo flute, percussion, voice) and Fabian Arkus (electronics). Limited to 500 copies. Cover reproduces the original artwork by Guntram Holdgrün from the 1973 Vertigo issue. Insert with liner notes." -Wah Wah
