For the first time on CD this album of German flute and sax player Ralf Nowy, originally released in 1973 on Global, is an insider tip for all lovers of the genre. Inspired by the burgeoning Krautrock scene Nowy found his own supergroup with top musicians Paul Vincent and Keith Forsey (Hallelujah) and others from the Munich scene. Lothar Meid, bass (Amon Düül II) contributes as a guest on one title as well as Al Gromer, sitar (Amon Düül II). "Lucifer´s Dream" was therefore a melting pot of almost everything from psychedelic pop to slightly jazz influences, with experimental and ethnic diversions, a complex musical suite with a great deal of invention. Indeed Paul Vincent and Keith Forsey are responsible for a great psychedelic rock feeling. Nowy himself and Al Gromer give the album an ethnic message. Outstanding titles are "Shiwa´s Dance" with a great Al Gromer on sitar and "Tschad" with a catching melody played by Nowy on flute and a percussive background, you will never forget. Digitally remastered from original master tape, this CD has a brilliant sound. It comes with band story, photos etc. Highly recommended!
