Editorial Reviews

When the band Agitation Free came together in 1967 as a result of the merging of two Berlin rock groups, one of the most interesting groups in a dawning independent German music scene was created. With their improvisations between rock, jazz and new music, Agitation Free soon relegated to the not so flattering category of Krautrock made musical forays into areas that few of their fellow German musicians had ever penetrated. At a time when most in Germany were still orienting themselves as closely as possible to Anglo-American musical formats, Agitation Free found a completely new and very original form of musical expression. Looking back, it s evident that the Agitation Free was one of the most important bands of the experimental circle known as the Berlin School , and a career springboard for a whole slew of musicians. At the same time, this policy of changing personnel also meant risking that the band couldn t keep itself together over the long run. Agitation Free consciously took this risk in order to remain as close as possible to their own concept free from commercial pressure or concessions to the latest trends and modes.

Live ´74 was recorded in Cologne during a late night show for German TV WDR.

This is the third Agitation Free album and it is an overwhelming psychedelic experience! This is German space-rock reaching a pinnacle with extended modal and harmonic guitar jamming evolving into effect loaded sound experimentation touching base with everything great in kosmic music. There is wonderful instrumental integration soaring into euphoric melodic passage or multi- dimensional areas of alternate space either through experimental manipulation of the amazing guitar work or the deep and conscious altering effects of some of the then current ventures into electronic sound (1974). This, to me, easily ranks with some of the finest krautrock albums of the time; Tago Mago, Yeti, Ash Ra Tempel's first, and Zeit. The first side contains some of Agitation Free's most intense guitar jamming and exploration somewhat similar perhaps to what Acid Mothers Temple are doing today giving way on side two to full electronic experimentation using mostly guitar and synthesizer ever weaving, evolving, and unfolding into a rapturous symphony of melodic sound texture. This album is an absolute MUST for anyone into psychedelia, electronica, or krautrock!

If you're a krautrock fan, it's quite simple really. This is a MUST have. 'At The Cliffs Of The River Rhine' is a 38 minute audio masterpiece that was recorded live on February 2, 1974 in Cologne, Germany. It's been poorly bootlegged before, so it's release on the Garden Of Delights label is most welcomed by all true fans of this music genre. The line-up on this CD is as follows: Michael Hoenig - keyboards, Lutz Ulbrich and Gustav Lutjens - guitars, Burghard Rauch - drums and Michael Gunter on bass. Opens with "Through The Moods", a thirteen minute gem of pure cosmic improvise that's exclusive to this title. The other tracks here come from the band's 'Second' lp. "First Communication" makes me feel like I'm on a cataclysmic trip through time, space and reality, Hoenig's keyboard work is unreal. "Laila" is an AF classic, part one and two sort of latch together as one song, employing some hypnotic grooves and well crafted bass lines. "In The Silence Of The Morning Sunrise" showcase some out-of-this-world like guitar playing. I'd personally give this disc a six star rating, but you're allowed five at the maximum. Most HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
