Loved that series. There's a more recent version of "Dawn at New Hope, Pennsylvania"
from that series (Vol. 2) that was released that, in the manner of true modern cynicism,
points out the struggles of nature rather than its beautiful, romanticized/idealized form.
BTW, the voice that you hear most of the time on "Be-In" is of the late David Peel.

Are there two with Hans Reichel? I know just about one, although it was reissued under a different name at some point.

Beaver & Krause "In A Wild Sanctuary", etc. three good lps.

One of them (still?) recorded nature sounds, one has passed on.

They had a stand in Woodstock where they demonstrated Bob Moog's model D (I think it was)


Krause was really pissed with George Harrison cos Harrison had the credit to Krause removed from the "Electronic Sound" lp which was basically Krause on all of side two.
So if you have the writing on the back bottom (silver) of the cover smudged out, its not the orig. orig. press.

Yes, you're right. What I meant to say is that I have both "Kino" (Goldbroiler & Ehrlichmann) and "...Onkel Boskopp" (which has extra tracks).

Damn, would have been awesome if another one existed. There's way too little Reichel out there.

True, but there really is a bunch of great stuff out there now.
He left a pretty good sized legacy.

Do you have the Bergisch-Brandenburgisches Quartett recordings
that feature him with Rüdiger Carl, Sven-Åke Johansson and Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky?

I'm a huge fan and try to have everything he participated in.

My fav Gentle Giant lp is the third, "Three Friends" which has the BEST ending in all prog (better even than "Suppers Ready" or Lighthouse Keepers"). A complex bass line with big churchy-sound. (In his prog book, Macan is correct to say the best prog epics employed secular musics for their build-ups.).

Most proggers rate other lps (like Octopus & Power & Glory) over 3 Friends ,but not I. Three Friends has a good concept of 3 aging childhood friends who have not seen each other for decades and who re-live school memories by going through their old school. One became a poor struggling artist, one a labourer and one a rich & powerful man.
I love the last line:

"Once three friends/ Sweet in sadness/ now part of their past/In the end/Went from CLASS to CLASS."

I encourage you to click the Gentle Giant link at the bottom of this page (in my sigfile).
