'70 GERMAN FOLK KRAUTROCK COSMIC AVANT-GARDE-

NEW LP REISSUE

EMTIDI are best remembered nowadays for their classic album "Saat," but prior to that release the duo formed by Maik Hirschfeldt and Dolly Holmes had already released a marvellous LP.

This superb debut album is filled with charming folk oriented material. 6, 7 and 12 string accoustic guitars and beautiful flute arrangements surround the lovely female/male duet voices of Hirschfeldt and his Canadian partenaire Holmes, making this album a pleasure for the listener, a nice piece for the collector and a source of good taste influences for the young musicians into today's new folk scene. Yes : this LP will give satisfaction not only to kraut-rock collectors, but also to all those into old folk gods like Pentangle, Vasthi Bunyan, Bridget St. John, Book Of Am... Plus to all those into the Devendra Banhart, Espers, Circulus... sounds!

Sung in English, it was recorded in July 1970 and originally released on the Thorofon label, who issued a very short run, thus making it one of those rarity items so valued by record collectors, with the addition that for this time the music lives up to the expectations of its market price value! "Emtidi were the forerunners of what could be named krautfolk; that is: the effort to create a true german folk movement, with a cosmic, avant-garde aim. Dolly and Maik formed a mysterious, unusual duet, with English lyrics that were either plenty of hippie mysticism at times as they were of parody at others. Although "Saat" is their most known record, "Emtidi" already showed the group's personality keys: orirism, hallucinated vocals and an extraordinary sense of humour." (Ferran Llaurad, Rockdelux) Here at Wah Wah we thought it was time to give this gem a proper edition as it deserves, with top quality pressing from the original master tapes . A nice chance to get this one for far less the amount an original copy changes hands for !!!
