Eroc 4 is the fourth solo album from Grobschnitt s drummer and knob-twiddler extraordinaire Eroc, originally released in 1979. Also known as Joachim Heinz Ehrig, he had become famous for his hit Wolkenreise from the previous Eroc 3.
Eroc about this album: Eroc 4 was laid back. Grobschnitt had become established as a band, the last few releases had brought us the appreciation we had long been fighting for. The fact that about one hundred thousand people attended our concerts every year showed us that we were on the right track. Apart from it, the huge success of Wolkenreise had made my life a lot easier. Most of the tracks and some of the bonus tracks of this album were conceived in a small house on the island Fanø to which I had transported a 16-track recorder as well as all my instruments for a couple of months, allowing me to spend one of the greatest times of my life in the mid-eighties there. I used to live with the light of the day and sleep with the quiet of the night. That was it and I didn t need anything else.
