Pinguin, Germany

Pinguin - Der Grosse Rote Vogel. 1971 Zebra.

One of the first bands on Achim Reichel's Zebra imprint for Polydor.

Flute/electric sax/organ/guitar with complex rhythms and superb vocals (in German) define this still criminally unknown prog record. Even has one experimental Ohr style Krautrocker. File along with Ikarus, Prof Wolfff, Nosferatu and Murphy Blend.

Bootlegs exist. This is one that would do well in the reissue market I think. I could actually see Esoteric taking this one on for their Reactive footprint.

Priority: 2
