Minotaurus "Fly Away" LP
Minotaurus played symphonic rock in the vein of the early Genesis or Yes. It all started in the mid-70ies when six young men decided to make music. After many rehearsals an own repertoire was available and they managed to play their first gigs. They made a name for themselves providing live accompainment to Stanley Kubrick´s film '7117' at the Oberhausen Short Film Festival. In 1977 they decided to release an album. The recording was made in the Langendreer sound studio, owned by Günter Henne of Epidaurus. Dietmar Barzen was allowed to make use of the Epidaurus´ mellotron. Soon later the LP 'Fly Away' was released, a private pressing of 1000 copies. Unfortunately they had ordered just 600 covers. After selling these, 200 covers with an arrowplane-picture were printed and 200 copies were sold without cover. The original-LP is very rare today, so it was at time, to make an official reissue.
