Various - Kraut!: OST-KRAUT! - Progressives aus den DDR-Archiven 1970-1975 - Teil 1- (2-CD)

2-CD (Digisleeve) with 76-page booklet, 28 single tracks. Total playing time approx. 140 min.

OST-KRAUT!: the two-part double CD series - a long overdue addition to our KRAUT! edition - comprehensively documents the history of progressive music in the GDR for the first time with studio and live recordings!
Please, note: liner notes in German!

  • Progressive rock from the German Democratic Republic! Never before has the GDR scene been honoured so extensively with studio and live recordings.
  • Bear Family Records® has documented what was happening in GDR rock off the mainstream by means of well-known rarities and some that have never before been released on record.
  • From around 1970 onwards, highly skilled musicians began to copy the sound of their Western idols.
  • The state's cultural policy had banished followers of western juvenile culture into the underground with restrictions and bans as early as 1965.
  • There was no 'beat ban' for progressive artists in the socialist brother countries such as Poland and the CSSR - the technical and artistic lead was correspondingly enormous, role models for the burgeoning young GDR scene. 
  • 'Progressives aus DDR-Archiven' brings together on two CDs the crème de la crème of the rock scene of the GDR and other socialist countries at the time, with recordings for AMIGA and the Deutsche Rundfunkarchiv (DRA). 
  • The masters originated between 1970 and 1975 and were stylishly compiled by journalist and East German rock connoisseur, Marcus Heumann. 
  • The 76-page booklet with numerous illustrations, photos and biographies of the bands and musicians vividly reflects the history of progressive rock in the GDR.

After the great success of the four-part double CD edition 'KRAUT! The Innovative Years of Krautrock, 1968 - 1979' on Bear Family Records®, it was obvious to honour the progressive music of the GDR for the first time with a similarly elaborate release!
Admittedly, this series is a bit of a misnomer - the term 'Kraut' was completely uncommon in the GDR music scene, just as 'rock' was still dubbed 'beat' there until the mid-1970s. 

However, since about 1970 - and largely unnoticed in the West - many GDR groups played extremely 'progressive' music under this label. Since artists and bands in the GDR had to pass a state aptitude test before they were allowed to earn money with their music, the pioneers of GDR prog often came directly from the music academy - with corresponding craftsmanship. The often sympathetic dilettantism of Western colleagues of the early '70s was an alien phenomenon to them.

 In those days, live concerts developed into a real competition between bands to play songs from progressive Western idols like Colosseum, Yes or Emerson, Lake & Palmer faithfully down to the last syncopation - whereby the socialist brother countries, especially Poland and the CSSR, also provided important impulses for the GDR scene. Despite all this, no band in the GDR called itself progressive at the time, if only because the term was otherwise occupied by state cultural policy. In 1970, for example, the youth radio station of the GDR's German Broadcasting Corporation tried to sell Ludwig van Beethoven and Ernst Busch to its listeners as the true progressives - in clear demarcation from the western rock underground, which was defamed as a ploy of the capitalist music industry. These were the last offshoots of a cultural policy from above that had banished almost the entire, then still young GDR beat scene into the underground by the end of 1965.

In contrast to their GDR colleagues, the musicians in socialist brother countries like Hungary, Poland and the CSSR did not suffer from a beat ban in the sixties - their technical and stylistic advantage was now correspondingly considerable. This did not go unnoticed by the music producers at the radio station and at AMIGA, the GDR's only - and of course state-owned - record company for underground music. Some of the recordings on this compilation provide examples of the 'development aid' of groups and performers from the Eastern Bloc given to the GDR scene, especially in the first half of the 1970s. They often re-recorded their successful songs from their home countries in German, which - as you can clearly hear - they sometimes knew more and sometimes less. 

The first part of the edition 'Ost-Kraut! - Progressives aus den DDR-Archiven' (East Kraut! - Progressives from the GDR Archives) brings together on two CDs the crème de la crème of the rock scene of the GDR and the then socialist foreign countries with recordings for AMIGA and the Deutsche Rundfunkarchiv (DRA). All the titles were recorded between 1970 and 1975 and were stylishly compiled by journalist and East German rock connoisseur Marcus Heumann. The history of progressive rock in the GDR is vividly reflected in the 80-page accompanying book with numerous illustrations, photos and biographies of the bands and musicians.

This small series is not intended to be a 'best of' compilation. Bear Family Records® documents what happened in official, media-present GDR rock off the mainstream by means of well-known tunes and some rarities from the German Broadcasting Archive that have never been released on record before.

"Various - Kraut!"

KRAUT! is a fine Krautrock cross-section in four editions, sorted by region - North, Central, South and Berlin, with the greatest hits, much long forgotten music and the most important songs.

At the end of the 60s, the Federal Republic of Germany developed a very individual and unique soundtrack to the social upheaval that was taking place at the same time. A large part of the young generation at that time revolted against the bourgeoisie, against the determining opinion sovereignty of the Springer press, against the bias of the media, against the muff under the gowns and against the general US-American guardianship. The breaking away from the Republic of the parents, but also the rejection of the real-existing socialism of the GDR, was accompanied by an additional resistance against the existing cultural values. Driven by the idea of finding a new path to a German identity in modern pop culture with penetrating curiosity and naive openness, musicians all over Germany went in search of a soundtrack that would be absolutely unique.

The social and musical roots of Krautrock lie in the time of the student revolt in the mid-1960s. With the emergence of psychedelic rock, hard rock and progressive rock, new special forms of rock music emerged worldwide - even sound visionaries like Karlheinz Stockhausen had a great influence. There were certainly overlaps with British prog rock bands. However, the creative approach of the Krautrock bands, who wanted to free themselves from international role models as well as fixed schemes of music making, was completely different. In general, it was a progressive basic idea, which expressed itself in strongly structured and freely improvised forms.

But the term 'Krautrock' was also a synonym for rock music from Germany, which did not want to give in to the mere imitation of rock 'n' roll or beat models from the English-speaking world. For a long time, 'Krautrock' was rather a collective term and a disparagingly used expression for everything that stomped Teutonic, i.e. wooden and bulky. The English music press also wanted to make fun of the growing self-confidence of German rock bands. Krautrock' stood for Teutonic meticulousness, ponderousness, pathos and rhythmic cramps in the German bands of the time. Nobody really had an exact definition, but everyone knew what was meant when it was mentioned - everything German was Kraut!

In the mid 70s the Krautrock boom ended as suddenly as it began and it took more than two decades to remember the qualities of that time. For since many techno musicians in the second half of the 90s referred to the Krautrockers' desire to experiment, Krautrock experienced a renaissance. The revival was nourished by various re-releases of old records.
