    The Amiga and Telefunken – 6.23513 AO are (rare) first pressings.
    Pool followed later.

      Absolute classic record. If one record has to be chosen as an example of prototype DDR/East German/GDR Rock and its own poetic use of language and music it is this one. "Traum" (Dream) and "Tagtraum" (Daydream) are instrumentals and field recordings/sounds, followed by the song "Am Fenster". The lyrics of "Am Fenster" is a poem of Hildegard Maria Rauchfuß. Check it out! There are tons of copies out there and its some kind of a must in everyones collection.

        I've agreed, but short:
        >The lyrics of this song don't telling a clear story<
        This is wrong: Why could a dream never tells a clear story?
        How much do you know about the 'dream', which is the main title of the B-side. It's a story about a fictitiously dream in three parts.
        You don't have to understand the story, but dreams are not unclear at all... Mystical often...
        My short thoughts to your review :]

          This album, especially side B, marks the breakthrough of the band in 1980. "Am Fenster" (means: At The Window) was placed in the charts of both german countries for several weeks, partly #1 (at least in the GDR). It is a kind of psychedelic rock with and excellent arrangement. Georgi Gogow plays an incredible violin over almost the whole song. The lyrics of this song don't telling a clear story. It describes kind of feelings with innuendoes and subtle phrases.
          Lyrics on side A are more clear and treat of problems like drink'n drive, a woman etc. The music is also pure rock.
          All in all a very fine album from that time from that country.
