News: Garden of Delights reissues Sündenfall II

Here's a big time rarity that has been on Garden of Delights Coming Soon list for awhile. I remember seeing this on ebay a few years back and fetching an enormous sum. I haven't heard it, but it definitely sounds intriguing. Should be available in the next couple of weeks.

"SUNDENFALL II from the Kevelaer area at the Lower Rhine played a mixture of folk and jazz, influenced by Jethro Tull. While their predecessors SUNDENFALL exclusively dedicated themselves to jazz, the group included folk after a change in line-up and band name (following the example of Amon Duul II). In 1972, Hubert Schmitz invited the band into his Trepitia film and sound studio in Alpen-Dorfor free recordings, as he wanted to test the newly installed equipment after a recent move into the new location. Thus the recordings were made for the album SUNDENFALL II (Trefiton HS 1017), which was released in a small edition of 200 copies at the end of 1972. Today it is sold at a price of about 500 to 1000 in mint condition. The track "Montpellier", chosen for the sampler on hand, stands out due to the distinctive trumpet play both at the beginning and at the end."
