Prosper - Broken Door (1975)

The one and only album from this German band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of mellotron, organ, mini moog, electronix, guitars, bass, drums, percussion and vocals.

This band was formed in 1973 and were disbanded in 1980. A second album was recorded and unofficially released as Second Running The Basement Tapes. That album is a fusion album  and very similar to the music Passport did.

Broken Door is a different kettle of fish, altogether.

You get some Eloy like symphonic prog, some folk rock stuff, some dark heavy prog, eclectic prog and some jazz.

All of this is called kraut rock and it is indeed kraut rock we get on this album.

Forty minutes in their company is all we get and these forty minutes flies too fast. The vocals are good and the music is really cool and proper.

This album has been many reviewers hailed as a hidden gem. I agree.

This is a very good album and one to bring joy to everyone into progressive rock. Check it out.
