    Cosmic Dreams:
    This sextet began their recording career as Thrice Mice. As such, they made one album for Phillips in 1971 and were also included on the Festival samplers Love & Peace (1970) and Pop & Blues Festival '70. Some years later they renamed themselves Altona, now expanded to a septet. Altona was the name of a suburb of Hamburg (perhaps this was the place where they came from?). A typical Altona song lasted for 5-7 minutes, had lots of sax and guitars and was largely based on blues and jazz rock. The first album had a funny cover of ugly tourists wearing Hawaiian-shirts wandering around in Hamburg. Their albums were produced by one Klaus Bohlmann. Altona were among the better jazz-rockers of the mid-seventies, although they never really excelled. Check them out if progressive jazz-rock appeal to you. Their albums can still be acquired cheaply.
