1975 saw the release of Grobschnitt's third album, Jumbo, on the green Brain label. Admitted the music on the album can be pretty cheesy, and the vocals of Stefan Danielak (Wildschwein) can be pretty peculiar and might turn some listeners away. This album is solidly in the symphonic prog vein, with some humor elements popping up. At this point, keyboardist Volker Kahrs (Mist) had included an Elka string synth and uses it throughout the whole album. The album starts off with "Jupp" which is simply a short introduction with Joachim Ehrig (Eroc) being silly before "The Excursion of Father Smith" kicks in. Here their music can be compared to Yes and Genesis, particarly the Steve Howe-like guitars. Many of the passages can be pretty cheesy here, especially the guitars. The rest of the album is much the same, but despite that, the music is well-performed, and the production is top-rate (and even the sound quality of the LP is top rate, and mines is the later orange Brain label pressing). "Dream and Reality" is a bit more folk-influenced than the rest, but there are plenty of progressive passages, and Mist uses his string synths, as usual. I would say "Sunny Sunday's Sunset" would be the album's best cut, although the middle part can be pretty cheesy, the rest is filled with some truly great guitar work. I like the beginning part that starts off sounding like space rock, before settling down to symph. The band also recorded a German-language version of this album in 1976 to tie listeners over while they got to work on Rockpommel's Land (that was to be released in 1977). Anyway, the music on Jumbo is exactly in the same style as Rockpommel's Land, so if you like that album, you'll like this album as well, although I suggest you try Rockpommel's Land first. Because I find a lot of Jumbo a bit cheesy to my ears, it falls short of being essential in my ears, but it's still worth having.

Jumbo was one of my favourite LPs from the 70s -- adventurous, complex and expert musicianship coupled with sound quality at the time seldom found outside direct-to-disc records. Those who like Pink Floyd, Can or Gong should sample Jumbo. Now it's on CD, we can play it even louder than before. Grobschnitt carved out a genre all to themselves, tho' Gong came close. Let's hope they don't allow the CD sound to clip, like Roger Waters' latest, "In the Flesh". Give it a go!
