"The Hansi Biebl Band is a phenomenon of the East German rock music history formed by Johannes Biebl in 1974 as the Johannes Biebl Blues Band. Until they finally split up in 1975, they performed about 120 concerts of which unfortunately no live recordings exist. For the East German Broadcasting however, five tracks were recorded in the Nalepa-Studios in 1975. These recordings were never broadcasted because second lead guitarist Eberhard Klunker and drummer Olaf Wegener escaped to West Germany at the end of the year which also meant the end of the Hansi Biebl Band. For a long time the tapes have been considered to be destroyed or lost. However by some miracle Eberhard Klunker found them with the help of former studio staff. The reason is a labelling mistake in the audio tape archive."

"So this release can be regarded as a late premiere - and as a lucky chance for enthusiasts of high level guitar rock. Asstonishing about these recordings is the technical quality. Especially since all tracks were recorded live with the whole band playing, renouncing single-instrument overdubs. To enjoy the full magic of this music, the use of headphones is recommended!"
