Various - Heavy Kraut!: Teil 1 - HEAVY KRAUT! -Wie der Hardrock nach Deutschland kam 1970 - 1976 (2-CD)

2-CD (Digisleeve) with 96 page booklet, 29 tracks. Total playing time approx. 135 min.
PLEASE, NOTE: liner notes in German 


  • With lavishly remastered recordings 'Heavy Kraut!' traces the rocky path of German bands from the pop and beat era of the '60s to hard rock - just as bands from the USA and UK made it popular here.
  • The two-part CD documentary from Bear Family Records® on a total of 4 CDs, each with an 96-page illustrated booklet, describes in depth the beginnings of hard rock in Germany, the attempts of bands, musicians, producers and record companies to go their own way, which finally put rock music from Germany on the world map of the genre with the Scorpions or Rammstein. 
  • On part 1 you will find Asterix, Lucifer's Friend, New Lords, Message, Silberbart, Toad, Birth Control, Eloy, Megaton, Weed, Scorpions, Night Sun, Blackwater Park and Janus.
  • Concept and liner notes by Frank Schäfer, born 1966, Dr. phil., for 20 years the metal expert for various daily newspapers and Rolling Stone.

At the end of the 1960s, Germany was still a developing country when it came to rock music. If you want to hear loud guitar riffs, you would listen to bands from the USA and England. They dominated record stores, dance halls and the few radio and television stations. But something is happening in the state of the D-Mark. Bands like the Rattles, Lords, Tonics, Petards, Giants, German Bonds and so on represent the sixties beat, now and again with original approaches. 

The late sixties witnessed a process of revaluation of popular music. With 'Revolver' and 'Pet Sounds', rock music establishes itself as a new art form. And a young, mostly academically educated generation felt that its honor had been taken: If rock is no longer just entertainment, but is even taken seriously by the bourgeois feuilleton, doesn't a country with this great tradition in serious music have a special responsibility? In the future, it will be about the specifically German contribution to the history of rock music, the search for its own musical identity.

For suitably disposed ears, the heavy sounds roaring with brutality from huge Marshall, Orange or Hiwatt towers - above all from England - from Cream, Taste, Free, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, UFO, Atomic Rooster and from the USA the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Blue Cheer, Alice Cooper, Grand Funk Railroad, Blue Öyster Cult and Vanilla Fudge provide the everyday soundtrack. But what is happening in Germany?

In the early days of German hard rock, there was a lack of labels, producers and sound engineers who could do something with this music. But there were pioneers, producers like Peter Hauke, sound engineers like Conny Plank (Eloy and Night Sun, among others) and above all Dieter Dierks (Wind, Jeronimo, Hairy Chapter, Tiger B. Smith, among others), A&R managers like Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser (Birth Control, Virus, among others), labels like Bellaphon, Vertigo, Bacillus, Pilz, Ohr and Brain (Scorpions and Accept, among others).

The public's reaction to early loud guitar sounds in Germany was mixed. On the one hand, rock fans made pilgrimages to international festivals on the Isle of Wight or Fehmarn to experience hard British and US bands; on the other hand, local heavy bands battled against prejudice, low audience interest and poor economic conditions.

The two-part CD documentary from Bear Family Records® on a total of 4 CDs, each with a 96-page illustrated accompanying book, describes in depth the beginnings of hard rock in Germany, the attempts of bands, musicians, producers and record companies to go their own way, which finally put rock music from Germany on the world map of the genre with the Scorpions or Rammstein.

"Various - Heavy 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.

Der perfekte Blues- und Krautrock-Sampler der frühen 70er

Als Fan dieser Musikrichtung seit Anfang der 70er Jahre halte ich diesen Sampler für perfekt, da auch viele Bands vertreten sind, die man auf wenigsten Samplern findet, wie Wind, Blackwater Park, Twenty Sixty Six And then, Kin Ping Meh und viele andere. Das 2-CD-Set ist vollgepackt mit toller Musik aus der ersten Hälfte der 70er Jahre, die typisch für die Kraut-Entwicklung ist. Der wohl beste Sampler dieser Art - nicht zu vergessen die hervorragende Soundqualität - und GAR NICHT zu vergessen das dicke Booklet mit Infos zur Serie und allen vertretenen Künstler.
Fantastisch! Hoffentlich wird's eine längere Serie!
