About This Item

This is a guide to the music of German groups in the progressive/electronic genre. The A-Z listing includes personnel details, album discography and analysis of the music. The book is well illustrated with six pages of colour. There is also a listing of the more important record labels for this genre, a guide to beginners in the study of the genre and suggestions for further reading

Cosmic Dreams At Play 1996 published by author Dag Erik Asbjornsen. The German progressive rock market of the 70s is a fascinating animal, and it's a delight to get off the autobahn and onto side roads that lead you to bands such as Out Of Focus, Karthago, Orange Peel and the mega-rare Grave, whose 1974 debut was limited to 100 copies.

As with the Freeman brothers' essential Crack In The Cosmic Egg, the author's opinions make this a pleasure to read, with a cracking line about the band Jane's debut album from 1972 reading, "For many people the low-point of Together has been the turgid vocals of Bernd Pulst…" Also, the coverage of the 70s extends to vital later groups such as Der Plan, although the electro-thud of DAF is absent, as are the more recent adventures of Faust (though this is after 1970). Another quibble is that album sleeves are very poorly reproduced, which is a real shame. That aside, this is an essential reference book for 70s German music
