Parzival - BaRock (1973)

The second and final album from this German band.

The band was a sextet with a lineup of violin, cello, guitars, bass, piano, organ, flute and vocals.

I reviewed their debut albums many years ago and you can find the review here. An album I liked.

It is a shame that the band only released two albums as their type of music were pretty unique and had a lot of potential. Something the debut album proved beyond any doubts.

Their music is a mix of krautrock and English muscular folk rock in the vein of Jethro Tull. Add some more folky folk rock too and you get this album and their music. There is even some medieval classic music in their music. The music is still melodic and catchy.

The vocals are both female and male ones. There is lots of violins and some flutes here in addition to some guitars.

The music is at time very pastoral and beautiful too. There are some really very good instrumentation on this album.

This band is a bit of a lost talent and their two albums is really good.

This album too is a good album and one well worth checking out.
