Long Hair is not only proud to present Tortilla Flat's legendary sole album 'Für Ein 3/4 Stündchen' (on vinyl, LHC 230 and on CD with 2 bonus tracks, LHC 229), but also the group's lot more legendary broadcast sessions for Germany's leading underground and krautrock program on radio SWF (look for further recordings in this series on Long Hair). The mainly instrumental album is very flute-driven, in opposite to the latter album, which was more electric violin-dominated, with very exciting guitar playing accompanied by rocking drumming and nimble bass lines. Very tight! AND VERY TEUTONIC! There were not so many progressive rock bands in the early 1970s which were flute and violin dominated, but also don't forget the great solo play of lead guitarist Manfred Herten. An early version of their main opus 'Tortilla Flat' shows the band with violinist Werner Knauber and Herman Basten on flute at its best, a dramatic increase with great tunes. In fact the music on 'SWF Sessions' is very unique, typical krautrock; psychedelic, complex but always very tuneful. Many flute solos, exciting great fuzzing guitar solos and an impressing electric violin sound with that special Teutonic krautrock feel, played by well trained musicians with great composition skills. Besides the long tracks there are three short titles which set music to three poems of the famous German poet Christian Morgenstern with great vocals by Manfred Herten. The album insert comes with full band story and rare and unseen photos. All titles are remastered and the sound is brillant. A must have for all lovers of the great German underground and krautrock music in the 1970s. Highly recommended!

Also available: SWF SESSION 1973 (CD).
