Wind - Seasons (1971)
The debut album from this German band.
Wind was a quintet with a lineup of piano, clavinet, drums, bass, vibraphone, organ, guitars, harmonica and vocals.
The band released two albums before they gave up the ghost. Two albums who has given the band a semi-classic band status.
We are again back in the krautrock land. Krautrock with some strong symphonic prog, blues and hard rock influences.
There are five pretty hard rocking songs here and a fifteen minutes long blues-ballad and electronica piece here. Altogether forty-two minutes is what we get here.
The sound is the typical 1970s and the music based on guitars and organs. The vocals are really good too.
This is an enjoyable album and I guess this band's good reputation is based on this album and this album alone. It is indeed a good album.
