Nicest use of the label on the cover art, huh?





First of all I want to promise to post some non-Kraut LPs in the future....
But for now another german gem called Jonathan. The same titled LP dates from 1978 and was released on Heinz Ulm's AAR first and later (soonish) rereleased on Bellaphon.
Jonathan consists of 2 basic members - Peter Garrattoni (Nexus, Euenspygel) on drums and Helmut Grab (Matter Of Taste) on the keys and electronics.
Back cover says they were accompagnied by Emil Wirth playing bass on Funky's Visit and Uli Buehl playing a Roland synth on Raising Winds, Fender Rhodes on Waters and Grand Piano on Moved Earth.

Here's the complete tracklist:
A1 Li Song (5:49)
A2 Raising Winds (3:47)
A3 Funky's Visit (4:13)
A4 Waters (2:58)
B1 Moved Earth (5:17)
B2 Stormy Days (8:20)
B3 Melotary (4:14)

I really love the combination of live drums and synths in this atmospheric and proggy album. Maybe you will too once you got it here

Cheers,
Basso
