    Crack in the Cosmic Egg:

    From just outside Baden-Baden, Coupla Prog were typical of the type of organ-fronted bluesy rock band you'll have found in almost every European city at the time. Little in the way of imagination, they adapted themes from others and added copious amounts of classical music. Despite all this, and that they never made any impact on a wider front (no record contracts, nothing, remaining totally unknown) Coupla Prog were rather privileged with no less than four SWF radio sessions in 3 year history.

    The recent CD releases documenting those radio sessions are as follows: SPRITE, which documents sessions from February 1970 and April 1971 and shows their roots in British blues-rock and Vanilla Fudge, largely relying on the keyboard player to hold it all together. Not bad, it's all let down somewhat by a rather embarrassingly off-key vocalist. My favourites here are the classical numbers towards the end. EDMUNDO LOPEZ, a big conceptual suite involving the life of a reluctant soldier, all performed live in the studio with no possibility of correcting errors or adding overdubs, they were brave. Very often I'm reminded of Procol Harum, during their progressive phase, with a little Jane, Epsilon, and such like.

    DEATH IS A GREAT GAMBLER compiles later sessions, after Rolf Peters had died, with a new guitarist and drummer. This finds them in a much more keyboard fronted classical rock mood.
