    Cosmic Dreams:

    Nosferatu has the dubious honour of having produced one of the most over-priced collector's items of the German progressive rock genre, now selling easily for 800 DEM in mint condition. Originally their album was released in France and Germany on Vogue (a French label as you know). Nosferatu formed circa 1968. An early member of the band was guitarist Michael Win, a future member of Epsilon. Opinions are mixed about this album. Some regard it as one of the best heavy progressive records to be made in Germany, others think it is quite ordinary and certainly over-rated on the collector circuit. I'm sure most will agree that it contains a raw, rough and heavy progressive style. There were still some beat and psychedelic elements evident in the music, characteristic of the first wave of German progressive rock in 1969/70. I would compare it to the first Tomorrow's Gift album, Orange Peel or Hairy Chapter. Arguably the best moments are Felke's highly talented flute and sax playing. When Nosferatu disbanded, he became a member of Epsilon. There are only six tracks in all, with plenty of organ and guitar work. The production by Tony Hendrik could have been better. A counterfeit of the album appeared In 1989 at a more reasonable price than the originals. If you're keen on heavy progressive rock, go for Armageddon and 2066 & Then first, check out Nosferatu only if you find you need some more!

    avatarReally love this one. Full of surprises. Really succcessful interbreeding of heavy rock & jazz; a very heavy jazzrock, perhaps--not at all a fusion vibe.
