CD Reviews

Easily recommended for prog-lovers
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This 8-piece band from Germany recorded "Cornucopia" back in 72/73,which was their only release.The album has 4 tracks and it kicks off with the 20min killer "Day of a daydreambeliever" with an amazing bass,well the whole song,booth vocals and instrumentation are amazing.The other songs are miles away from "Day of...",but still they are very good.Instruments used includs guitars(el,ac&12st),killer bass,drums,saxes,flute and keyboards.To summon it up:BUY!!!!!!"
Totally killer obscure gem of progressive rock

"I've ran into many obscure prog rock albums that although weren't bad, you can often understand why they remained so obscure. Here's a German group really worthy of your attention: Cornucopia. They only released one album, Full Horn in 1973 on the Brain label, and in my opinion, one of the highlights on that label. The band featured tons of great guitar and organ playing, some great use of sax (from Jochen Petersen, ex-Ikarus, later of Randy Pie). I can hear some King Crimson (disharmonous passages, the occasional almost Fripp-like guitar) and VdGG (especially the organ and sax work) influences in the music, but no way are they derivative. The opening cut, "Day of a Daydream Believer" (with absolutely no references to the Monkees' "Daydream Believer", thank God) is a totally mindblowing side-length cut with some really unpredictable twists and turns. Lots of intense passages, with some mellow passages to calm you down before another intense passage surfaces, or something very twisted and experimental. Not one bad idea found on this cut! "Morning Sun" is way different. Here they go for late '60s psychedelia, really strange to be doing such a thing as late as 1973 but these guys did it. It was probably their idea of making a hit single, but in 1973, no one would buy into that, for one thing, it's not typical of the album or the group, and you'd more likely get away with doing such a song around 1967 or 68 than in '73. But regardless, it's actually a pretty nice piece. "Spot on You Kid" is back to more familiar Cornucopia territory, with lots of changes and complex passages, the only thing I can do without is the cheesy circus organ that closes the piece. "And the Madness" is a very short piece showing the band can still be unpredictable in a short piece.

I find the album is a tad underrated. "Day of a Daydream Believer" is nothing short of incredible, and you really need this album for this piece, but rest of the album is full of great stuff too (including the psychedelia of "Morning Sun") and worthy of your attention."

"Sole 1973 album release by this seven piece German band.From hearing this CD just once,I can tell their influences were more than likely that of jazz,fusion and the Canterbury scene.Four tracks,that are the eight-part "Day Of A Day Dream Believer"(19:50) which is probably the best cut here,the melodic "Morning Sun"(3:07),"Spots On You,Kids"(12:37)and "And The Madness".Didn't exactly knock me out.I'll take a stab in the dark here(sort to speak),but if you're a big fan of,say Kraan,Soft Machine and maybe even Embryo,then you'll hopefully get more out of this CD than I did."
