Os Mundi, Germany


Os Mundi - Latin Mass. 1970 Metronome.

One of the earliest examples of what we now call Krautrock. Nice organ and guitar leads, with the added gimmick that they sing in Latin (years later, this idea was picked up by the Italian group Deus Ex Machina). Still has a holdover 60s psych rock sound, making it somewhat unique for German rock. While Universal has reissued many of the titles on Brain, it remains to be seen if they'll do the earlier albums on the parent label Metronome. Currently only boots exist. Second album "43 Minuten" is available from Repertoire and Universal. There's also an archival release called "Sturmflut" on Garden of Delights that's worth a listen or two.

Priority: 3
