Dzyan recorded 3 albums between 1972 and 1974. Each album they released was quiet different. After the release of the first album the line-up changed and Eddy Marron was the new guitarist. The SWF-session reminds a lot of their first album. Dzyan played a slightly jazzy form of progressive rock with flashes of Zappa´s "Hot Rats" and even some Van Der Graaf Generator saxophone-fronted diversions. These radio studio recordings are even more rock oriented then the first album recordings. There are five titles. 4 new compositions and a longer (11 minutes) and different version of "Dragon Song", which is probably the best title of the first album. "Steels Electric/Daddy Groove" is a 15 minutes suite, very inventive and with great guitar playing by Eddy Marron. "ZAZ" has a great ethnic feel produced by fine Zaz (Turkish stringed instrument) also played by Eddy Marron and Orient rock rhythm patterns. Finally "Resurrection" was part of a one hour suite Dzyan sadly never recorded. These recordings are among the best ever recordings at the SWF session studio. Remastered from the original master tape. Fine booklet insert with a cover painting by Helmut Wenske (never used before on a cover), band story, photos.
