Originally released in 1975, Lemmingmania is a compilation filled with special excerpts and two fine unreleased tracks, Light, and the title track, Lemmingmania, from the classic Amon Düül II line up. All the tracks on Lemmingmania are big and spacey with that unique song writing quirkiness that makes Munich?s Amon Düül II so special and gives the listener a good overview of the musical range of one of Germany?s top underground band of the era. Amon Düül II, the second formation of this now legendary band, are one of the earliest and best known of the German experimental (Krautrock) bands. For the complete re-issue series of the Amon Düül II catalogue, the CDs will be released as remastered deluxe editions, with enhanced booklets, featuring new liner notes and photos.
Amon Duul II - 'Lemmingmania' (Captain Trip)

(3 out of 5 stars)
"Originally released in 1974,'Lemmingmania' is a decent compilation made up of,mostly rare ADII singles.The only two tracks that I even remember are the outstanding "Archangels Thunderbird" and "Burning Sister"(an excerpt from "Soap Shop Rock").Vocalist Renate Knaup's vocals are quite good,sometimes truly astounding,specailly when guitarist Chris Karrer jumps in and shares the vocal duties with her.Brings to mind SORT OF like Germany's reply to Jefferson Airplane.If you happen to be a new ADII fan,you might want to consider getting their actual lp reissues on CD like 'Phallus Dei','Yeti' and work your way forward.'Lemmingmania' is pretty much meant for ADII completists.Truly deserves a 3 1/2 star rating."
