Sündenfall II - Sündenfall II (1972)

The one and only album from this German band. 

Sundenfall II was an offspring of the German jazz band Sundenfall. The II version was put together after the main member of Sundenfall got wind of Jethro Tull and wanted to go folk rock too. The idea was to copy a lot of Jethro Tull.

That was the idea. The result is somewhat different. 

Take a great deal of krautrock and add a great deal of folk rock to the stew too. There are still a lot of jazz around here too and a lot of Amon Duul too. That is #1 of the Amon Duul franchise. Not the # 2 one. 

The music was performed with bongos, woodwinds, English vocals, guitars, bass and drums. Very folky, the whole lineup. 

The music is sorely lacking a good song or two. There is none here. The music is decent enough though. This album is most of all a collage of different styles and very krautrock confused. In short; don't bother.
