Like most of the Music released in the late 70s, these two lost and forgotten gems have a certain Disco feel, but sometimes you can hear the Rock and Fusion influences shining through.

Remastered from original master tapes by original producer Bill Schulenburg, these two rare sought-after albums, privately pressed and released in 1977 and 1979, will be available again on January 24 through BBE Music on Vinyl, CD and Digital
This exclusive release comes with extensive sleeve notes by Jesper Christiansen – Doctor of Music archaeology; the package also features a wealth of original photos alongside artwork and press cuttings of the period.
