Here is the third album to be released containing more jams from the historic 1968 jam session. The inner sleeve only lists 7 'musicians', but I have read elsewhere that nearly 10 to 15 people are responsible for these recordings. If you are not familiar with the original incarnation of Amon Duul, then this description will be helpful for you. Imagine three or four people playing acoustic and electric guitar in a manner similar to a few drugged-out garage band kids, accompanied by six or more people playing a variety of percussions all in a different time signature. Their songs, if you can call them songs, are megalithic jams centered around a single riff or chord sequence. Extremely amateur, almost bordering on ritualistic playing. Something that has to be heard to be truly understood, liked or disliked.
