Shockingly this gorgeous, sublime folk rarity has a discogs page, for which Rhea and Nimbus don’t. As soon as the needle drops, it’s clear we have landed in Basementopolis.

I suspect this was a demo not ready for prime time, so it’s probably not a good prospect for a reissue, unless they have a stash of studio quality material sitting around. Requires a deeper listening session, but as far as 1980s German private pressings go, this is a clear winner. I hope I’ll find time to return to this one later and write a proper review, but in the meanwhile if you see it anywhere (not that you’re likely to, but miracles happen), grab it without hesitation.
