    the Crack in the Cosmic Egg:
    Walter Wegmüller was a well-known figure in the late-1960's, as a mystic, artist, and as an eccentric and gifted all-round talent. He was one of the group of Swiss friends that included Sergius Golowin and H.R. Giger, befriended by Timothy Leary whilst he was stuck in Switzerland in the early-1970's. Reputedly, Timothy hatched the idea of a musical interpretation of Walter Wegmüller's new set of Tarot cards, and a concept centred on the trump cards was soon formulated. The band were an expanded amalgam of  Wallenstein and Ash Ra Tempel musicians.
    TAROT is amongst the most remarkable projects in Krautrock, covering the whole range of cosmic music, and aptly elaborately packaged in a box with numerous cards and inserts. The first three sides cover a wide range of moods, with folky touches, strange electronic diversions and fiery space-rock drives, fronted by guitars, synthesizers and Mellotron. The fourth side is encompassed by a single suite that surges beyond Ash Ra Tempel, previewing the sound of  The Cosmic Jokers. Throughout, Walter is our guide, narrating in a most imaginative manner his visions of the Tarot, in a weirdly accented German.
    As the story goes, at one of the Tarot sessions, Ash Ra Tempel's JOIN INN was also recorded, whilst the dynamic trio were waiting for the rest of the musicians to turn up! Aptly, TAROT is nowadays one of the most sought after original gems of Krautrock.

    possibly the greatest album in the entire Krautrock scene, and one of the greatest in the history of all progressive rock. Thanks for sharing.
