Eroc 3 is the third solo album from Grobschnitt s drummer and knob-twiddler extraordinaire Eroc, originally released in 1979. Also known as Joachim Heinz Ehrig, he later became famous for his hit Wolkenreise from this album.
Eroc about this album: Eroc 3 was a compromise. I didn t have much time for my own stuff back then, because my band Grobschnitt meant a great deal of work in the late seventies. I put together everything I had done so far, added a number of souvenirs from my musical past and assembled Eroc 3 overnight. What I didn t know was that this album was to sell ten times more that any other of my albums and that the Wunderreise Of The Wolkenkönig (later abbreviated to Wolkenreise) was to gain a huge momentum which completely changed my career. Wolkenreise became a huge hit and all of a sudden millions of people knew the song!
