Check also George Lewis: homage to Charlie Parker, don't mind the genre restrictions, but listen to the sounds of Richard Teitelbaum's electronics especially and music on that recording is also high quality.

Drives chills down my spine . Up there with the debut or even better . The Lp looks so peacefull and it is on one hand side but so full of screaming emotions and dark sides and pain . I cannot remember having heard such passion again on a record that will always be a one of a kind . People say it is like punk before punk but punkmusic and I really am into that style never got me there . There is no ego on this thing just pure screaming light . So I sit here listening to this again after a long time on a trainride and am happy that there is no sound in space and we cannot hear the sun roar , deafening us . This record is a door to the free spirit of the mortal visitor and a musical manifesto against the enchantment of earth and the sheer stupidity and greed of man, offering a mood of denial . Gottsching rips his sg , and the singer is haunting like Rocky Erickson but in his own way . The drums are less free and pumping than on Amboss but creating a logic within yet dynamic song structures . A funny dude said talking about music is like dancing architecture . I realize this more and more though dancing architecture makes sense to me, I just don't want to watch it . I heard from old musicians that they never liked the screaming but those people like 80s overproduced Bluesrock besides good music . Guess the previous coment made me write this . One of the best screaming haunting singers ever . This thing is at least more euphonic than the tim leary lp with Ash Ra Tempel which think is a joke and I never listen to their or his later dancefloor stuff although he may have invented that style . Just not mine . Who cares they gave us join inn too . This Lp is for people who are tuned to heavy music for shure . Like Agitation Free or My Solid Ground . This stuff is ripping.

A great pity. Some excellent music and mood is totally ruined by the cacophonous bellowings of dreadful vocals.

Re: Purple Pyramid reissue.
I am just starting my search into Ash Ra Tempel. The first album i grabbed was this version of Schwingungen. The sound quality sounds rather muddy and left me wanting a better copy. Is this related to the version I acquired or is the original lp/master tapes of the same quality? Thanks.

The original album is an invaluable artifact from the classic kraut/German psych period. Ash Ra's use of silence and tension create a realm which thrives within the contradicting and complimenting elements.

However this CD re-release is merely a copy of the vinyl, as one can hear the clicks and pops and hiss from the copy being used. I don't the master tapes were ever touched for this release. This is unfortunate. At least they preserved the original art.

This vinyl reissue is disappointing. The wax is of rather poor quality and the sound reproduction suffers from noticable losses if compared to the original press from 1972. The sleeve is not fold out and there is no insert, so all lyrics, pictures and notes of the original are lost. I wonder why Spalax couldn't reprint this with absolute fidelty to the Ohr release, just like Think Progressive did with Popol Vuh and Tangerine Dream titles. Avoid this poor release, buy the CD instead or hunt for the original.

"Schwingungen" is Ash Ra Tempel's masterpiece, an immortal record of stunning beauty. All the different styles of the krautrock genre seem to be gathered on the three long tracks of this LP. "Look At Your Sun" and "Liebe" are dreaming and melancholic ballads, while "Flowers Must Die" is a crazy, paranoid tribal chant, where the voice reaches allucinatory and screamed tones, and the music melts an unstoppable rhythmic section with razor-sharped electronic blasts. Finally, "Suche" explores deep cosmic scenarios which recall Tangerine's Dream "Alpha Centaury". A very unique listening experience which I recommend to everyone.
