Achim Reichel & Machines - Echo

  • Achim Reichel & Machines

    Echo LP (1972)

    Polydor

Spacey krautrock exploration that was a bit under the radar until tastemaker Julien Cope blew the doors wide open on it about a decade ago.  This album is a true hypnotic sonic adventure (a 90 minute double LP) which makes you think there was some serious acid in the water in Germany back then.  For a taste, listen to "The Echo of Presents" with it's reverby delayed guitars you'd think it was something of a modern day stoner rock band like Dead Meadow.  As of 2017, this has yet to be reissued. So expect to pay out the nose for an original copy.
