    the Crack in the Cosmic Egg:
    Formed by Dicky Tarrach, and mostly originating as ex-members of the pop group The Rattles, they started as the rock 'n' soul band Randy Pie & Family. Many of the musicians in Randy Pie were also involved in the experimental rock albums of Achim Reichel. Bassist Manfred Thiers had come from the hard-rock progressive band Gash.
    Surprisingly, whereas most supergroups are ill-fated, Randy Pie not only made one rather good progressive album (their debut), but also managed to gain commercial success. Blending bluesy and jazzy styles into a dynamic and varied progressive, their debut contained much excellent typically German rock, sounding like a potpourri of Hamburg bands, with some notably experimental touches. After the not too bad HIGHWAY DRIVER, Randy Pie continued with further albums, each reverting back closer to their pop music roots. We haven't, as yet, encountered the double live album ENGLAND, ENGLAND.
    Most Randy Pie members have gone on to other projects since, though little has been of interest. Also, like most successful 1970's bands Randy Pie tried a reformation in the 1980's, releasing just a one-off LP (this information has been lost) and a couple of culled singles.

    I loved this sound in the 70's... I'm a respectable 59 years of age now and still listen to it... Why you may ask... Simply because it is Sooooooo very, very good... Thanks to Randy Pie
