Amon Düül II - Yeti

Love that cover.

Amon Düül II - Yeti

Krautrock. It's a genre I don't know that much about. Oh sure I can name drop a bunch of them, but I have never really given any of them a serious listen. Untill now, and starting with Amon Düül II.

This is Yeti, their 2nd album, released in 1970, and I must say, it is quite good. Musically, this is just a smorgasboard of awesome psychedelic improvisation and the like, with the title track being a lengthy 18 minute improvisation. In fact, a good half of this album is improvisation.

If you enjoyed the Silvester Anfang posted long ago, you should have a small understanding of just what you can expect here, as they were strongly influenced by this.

Recommended to fans of 70s music, psychedelic rock, and Silvester Anfang.
