Limited CD edition of this classic H.N.A.S. (Hirsche Nicht Aufs Sofa) side project. "The world of Krautrock was forever changed in late 1987 when the master tapes for the mythical never-released album by the early 70's trio Damenbart were discovered in Spain by a former associate of the band. The incredible find was whispered about in elite collector circles for months and when the tapes were finally played back publicly for the first time, it quickly became apparent that all of the legend and hype that surrounded these mysterious 1971 recordings had been completely justified. The tapes were soon handed to members of the German experimental group Hirsche Nicht Aufs Sofa to give the album a proper release and allow this music to finally see the light of day. The resulting LP was immediately hailed as a classic of Krautrock, with one excited reviewer calling it 'the best album Ash Ra Tempel never made!' Unfortunately, as this LP was issued in only a very small edition, many Krautrock fans wound up bitterly empty-handed. Now, once and for all, this amazing album is being brought forward again for all of the hungry ears out t to fully digest. In addition to re-issuing the recordings contained on the LP, this CD appends an additional 19 minutes of previously unreleased studio material from the original sessions, as well as a live track from 1972. The packaging features several photos of the band along with some mind-blowing collage art." Reissued on April Fool's Day, 2003.
