Format: Audio CD
Released in 1972, 'Bauer Plath' would be Witthuser & Westrupps' final studio album together before they parted ways, never to return.
After the relatively cosmic-sounding excursions of their previous 2 studio albums, 'Bauer Plath' sees the duo aquire the perfect blend of shimmering teutonic-folk beauty and commercial-sounding electric folk-rock, which help give the album a mellow, sun-kissed vibe that warms the soul.

Musically, Witthuser & Westrupp combine to weave a beautiful, glistening tapestry as their acoustic guitars melt into one another to create a musical backdrop that is green and fertile, like the wide open spaces the countryside has to offer, very apt when you consider that folk music is, essentially, more earthbound than many of the more modern musical genres, such as rock'n'roll, that seem to be inspired by the hectic pace that represents the modern, industrial world.

Quite beautiful teutonic-folk melodies float on the horizon, like a never ending sunrise, each of which seem to lull you back to the innocence of childhood, a dreamy soundtrack for sunny days from years gone by.
The more pronounced use of electric instruments does nothing to deter from the album's folk leanings, in fact they reinforce the melodic nature of the music, as the use of drums, bass & mellotron steers the album towards a place where folk, soft-rock and even pop dance together, while catchy, sentimental-sounding hooks pull you in.

Yes, 'Bauer Plath' is a more commercial-sounding, polished album than its predecessors, but is in no way any worse for that fact.
On the contrary, pound for pound, 'Bauer Plath' would have to be regarded as being every bit as good as their legendary acid -folk album 'Trips und Traume' from 1971.
