Doldinger's Motherhood - Motherhood (1970)
The one and only album from this German band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of saxophones, clarinet, piano, organ, bass, drums, guitars and vocals.
The band first released an album as The Motherhood before they split up and started afresh under the name Doldinger's Motherhood.
Klaus Doldinger was the motor in this band. He later joined Passport, another German band who released numerous albums. Reviews to follow next year.
Doldinger's Motherhood was one of the many German bands who played and recorded music somewhere between blues, psych, hard rock and fusion.
In other words..... krautrock. The music is a raw version of krautrock with a lot of the qualities and common values from this genre.
The music is not as raw and wild as I thought it would be. There is a lot of saxophones here too. The music is undeniable hard though.
The quality of the music on this thirty-five minutes long album is decent throughout though. It is not good enough for my liking though. Krautrock fans should perhaps check out this album.
