Release Date:10/20/2017;Notes:Sommor Records present a reissue of Kedama's Live At Sunrise Studios, originally released in 1976. Swiss heavy-prog/kraut monster, originally released as a private, hand-made edition of 200 copies. Long instrumental/experimental tracks fueled by mellotron, Hammond, MiniMoog, ripping distorted guitar, and heavy drums. Kedama came from St. Gallen in the north-eastern corner of Switzerland, near the Bodensee - only a few kilometers from Germany and Austria. Their name was inspired by Ketama, Morocco, famous for it's cannabis fields. They were amongst the first bands - possibly the first - to record at Etienne Conod's legendary Sunrise Studios, using the "kunstkopf" artificial head system. Unfortunately, the lack of experience with this new system resulted in a slightly thin sound on the album. This reissue vastly improves the depth of the recording. Live At Sunrise Studios comprises four long instrumental tracks, two on each side of the LP. This is essential stuff, from the weird psych-funk of "Hwrlnzg" to the sitar-drenched "Improvisations". RIYL: King Crimson, Egg, Fusioon, Supersister, Jonesy, Gentle Giant, Tetragon, Siloah. Newly remastered sound Includes insert with rare photos and liner notes by Alan Freeman (The Crack In The Cosmic Egg (1971)) Repro of a rare promotional booklet Includes download card which features seven amazing bonus tracks taken from unreleased studio sessions (1973-77) and the compilation Perspectives (1975) Edition of 550 (numbered).
