Product Description

Message-From Books and Dreams-'73 HARD PROG ROCK-NEW LP


From Books and Dreams




Message - From Books and Dreams

The debut LP from MESSAGE was excellent , though, it took until the second album for them to reveal their full potential. Even without a second guitarrist and running-in a new drummer, part of the key to FROM BOOKS AND DREAMS success was DIETER DIERCKS enthusiasm , phenomenal production and vivid recording. Yes, right through it’s an album of astonishing creativity , menacing and intensely powerful, with bizarre surreal dream image lyrics and all sorts of surprising twists in the music. (excerpts from ‚the crack in the cosmic egg‘).

Reissue of excellent 1973 progressive hard rock with a psychedelic slant.

The debut LP of the Message was excellent but only after your second LP, the band drew from their full potential.

The key to success was also due, above all, the commitment DIETER Diercks, his great production and excellent recording quality.

All in all, FROM BOOKS AND DREAMS ", an album of outstanding creativity, threatening and intense power, with strange surreal lyrics and a lot of surprising musical turns - a true masterpiece. 

 (Excerpts from: "the crack in the cosmic egg ').
