Walpurgis - 'Queen Of Saba' (Ohr/Pilz)
Mike Reed | USA | 06/02/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Originally released in 1972,as this appears to be the band's sole album.A really good find,from Berlin,Germany to be fully experienced here.This is,of course one of those little known krautrock bands.Tunes that had me playing this disc repeatedly were the mind-altering title track "Queen Of Saba","What Can I Do(To Find Myself)?" and the eleven minute sonic epic "My Last Illusion".I tell you,the twin guitar work on this disc sure makes you feel it.Line-up:Jerzy Sokolowski-guitar&vocals,Ryszard Kalemba-guitar,George Fruchtenic-bass,Jan Sundermeyer-flute&congas,Jurgen Dollase(of Wallenstein)-keyboards and Manfred Stadelmann-drums&vocals.Might appeal to fans of Grobbschnitt,Wallenstein,Greatful Dead or Moby Grape.Trip out!"
Really worth checking out!

"Housed in a beautiful sleeve this is (i think) there only album and one of the less familiar. I got this and Wallenstein at the same time and both albums have a really nice feel to them. Out of the two this is my favourite. Like a lot of German albums the singing lets it down, though not as bad as the first Grobbschnitt album (which is cringe worthy!) thankfully Walpurgis (great name) don't give the singer too much of a look in. He reaches a complete nadir on the lengthy 'what can i do' with his histronics but it doesn't take away from some great guitar interplay. The conga player pushes the band along nicely and the title track has a great wah-wah riff before stretching into a nice flute part which i wish went on longer. As i've said its the twin guitar attack that makes this worth buying. Nice production as well."
