News: Long Hair to reissue Amos Key archive material

It's been a little slow on the news front of late, so it was with great excitement that I saw the latest gem from Long Hair. Amos Key's album "First Key" is still not on CD, so maybe Long Hair will pick that one up as well. In the meantime, this CD certainly looks intriguing!

Amos Key - Keynotes: The Lost Tapes SWF Session 1973.

Long Hair says: "For the first time on CD: The radio session of classical rock influenced great German krautrockers Amos Key. Amos Key owed great debts to Bach, Beethoven and Schumann, adding a heavy krautrock twist to a music closely resembling the Nice or Egg, full of angst and weird psychedelic and space-rock touches (Freeman Brothers: In A Crack In The Cosmic Egg). Amos Key lived in Munich and consisted of great organ-player Thomas Molin, congenial bass-player Andreas Gross and superb drummer Lutz Ludwig. This fairly competent outfit recorded the radio sessions before they released their famous and very rare album "First Key" in 1973 on label "Spiegelei". Sadly bandleader and organ-player Thomas Molin passed away in the 90ies but bass-player Andreas Gross tells the band story in a very vivid and funny way. 24 pages booklet contains also a lot of unseen photos. Sound is perfect; remastered from the original tape. Don't miss this superb item."

Not sure the term "fairly competent outfit" is the way I'd advertise it... LOL.
