Alcatraz - Vampire State Building CD. First album by mysterious band from Hamburg. Originally released in 1971 on Philips. Their music featured fuzzed guitars and effects overdose in a heavy and bluesy over-the-top Krautrock setting, mixing together genres like no-on else did. One of the finest slabs of eccentric HEAVY KRAUTROCK. 'Simple Head Phone MInd' (11:56) and title-track 'Vampire State Building' (13:10) are true masterpieces. First time on CD and absolute must for every Krautrock fan. Taken from mastertapes + one bonus track, and informative booklet.
