Gila: Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee (CD, 40:53); Garden of Delights Records, CD 046, 1973 Cyberhome: http://aural-innovations.com/god/main.html More info: Contact Keith Henderson at firstname.lastname@example.org 10 words or less: 3rd and final album by KrautRock legends Elaboration: Recorded in 1973 with Florian Fricke of Popul Vuh on Keyboards, this is a concept album based on the book of the same name dealing with the genocide of the native American people. The predominant sound on this album is the acoustic Guitar of the leader Conny Veit. That sound, coupled with the simpler song oriented compositions give this album a distinctly 60's feel. The bulk of this album does not resemble the typical German progressive sound of the 70's which is traditionally associated with healthy doses of jammy, SpaceRock freakouts though the longest tune, track 5 does exemplify those qualities. Mellotron and Moog are listed in the album credits but unfortunately do not figure as prominently on the album as one would expect. I'm afraid that I wouldn't classify this album as a classic as it does not live up to the fertile subject matter of it's title though I will say that the 2nd half of the album does pick up and start to get interesting by the last track. ~ L Perez
