Damit Du Mich Horst (GEMA 1016) 1979 Germany * – So You Hear Me

 

 

Good German rock outfit with a melodic progressive-edged style close to the Peter Janssens albums or sometimes even Eden, but with a greater acoustic emphasis. Both female and male lead vocalists backed by an artful combination of acoustic and electric guitars, piano, flute, mellotron, organ, bass and drums. All lyrics in German, but the Christian themes are readily detectable within titles like ‘Kyrie l’, ‘Alleluja’ and ‘Agnus Dei’. Something about that word in the title puts a grin on my face. Gate-fold cover with neat b&w pencil ‘ illustration of a hand and wide-open mouth. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
