Tonic, Germany

Tonic - This Way. 1980 Peak.

For the late date, this has a remarkably sophisticated sound – similar more to the classic early 1970s Italian prog scene, than anything typically associated with German rock. Complete with choir mellotron, organ, bells, speedy guitar solos, flute, sax and complex meters. When the vocals kick in, I'm reminded of Grobschnitt's "Rockpommel's Land" era. There's also a review on the excellent Planet Mellotron site for this very interesting one off.

Thanks goes to Midwest Mike for turning me onto this title years ago.

Priority: 2
