Boomkat Product Review:
It's not just that this early '70s German prog-rock band's albums have been very difficult to find - Faust, their 1971 debut, has only been intermittently available on expensive Japanese import, and So Far, their second album, has been out of print for years. No, the real source of the myth is their utterly fantastic music. Blending elements of psychedelia, avant-garde classical, folk and even pop influences along with that characteristic 'krautrock' metronome beat, Faust albums were mesmerizing but warm, even personal, not machine-like like some of their German peers. These rare Albums and BBC sessions were collected together on the recent ‘Wumme Years’ boxed set – now finally available to buy seperately.
