2nd and loaded with vocals

"Wallenstein were part of the German seventies Krautrock/Cosmic Music lable/scene. They often appeared solo on MUCH GREATER releases such as The Cosmic Jokers (track them all down). Here on their second lp they let the bass guitarist sing all these odd off key tunes along with their usual drugged out symphonic rock. Strangely I dont mind this album (of the four it has the most vocals) the songs are nieve and odd ball enough to be interesting. But I can see anyone expecting good vocals and pure space rock just ripping this out of their CD player and throwing it across the room."
The name of this band is Walpurgis

"This is not Wallenstein. This band is named Walpurgis, and the album is called "Queen of Saba" The guest keyboard player here is Jurgen Dollase from Wallenstein, and several Cosmic Couriers projects. This band, who appear to be half German, and half Polish (judging by their names) recorded this one album for Ohr back in the early 70's, then disappeared. It's pretty good stuff, similar (but inferior) to Wallenstein, and will appeal to fans of the early Krautrock scene. The second half is the better half, with some long instrumental passages featuring wonderful cosmic keys from Dollase, and some tasty guitar work. Don't care to much for the vocals though."
