(2011/Garden Of Delights) 9 tracks.
"Bad heads and bad cats", recorded in the autumn of 1975, was released in 1976 as the eighth LP of the Munich band Embryo. It was also their first album on April, their newly founded independent distribution and label. According to drummer Christian Burchard, it is one of Embryo's best LPs. Due to its jazz focus, however, it might be too unwieldy for some listeners. There was a CD edition in Spain on Disconforme (DISC 1032 CD) back in 1999, but that has been deleted years ago. The first of the two bonus tracks was recorded in the Stommeln Dierks studio in 1975, together with the other LP tracks, and couldn't be placed on the album for a lack of space. The second one was recorded at the first Vlotho festival on June 28th, 1975, and was first released on the "Open Air Concert Vlotho-Winterberg" LP (MOL 0001). Again all tracks were written by the Embryo members themselves.

Founded in summer 1969 by drummer and singer Christian Burchard (born 17. 5. 1946 in Hof), the Munich jazz rock group Trat recorded their first LP "Opal" in 1970. Since the group constantly fluctuated between subculture and consumption, the members often changed - more than with any other German group. The only constant member was Christian Burchard. Due to the change of members, the style of the group changed all the time, sometimes it was free jazz, sometimes rockier, sometimes socially committed lyrics were also offered.
Through cooperation with Munich writers, author readings with music from the concerts, a multi-media show with music, slides and own films were created and appearances in kindergartens were nothing special. In October and November 1975 Embryo also performed with the Symphony Orchestra of the city of Bielefeld. Embryo has received the most attention - also in England and America - so far with their latest LP "Surfin'.
