Instrumentals # 58 Wolfgang Reichmann

The lost man of Krautrock. Reichmann murdered in a bar room brawl shortly after the making of this in 1978, his debut solo album, had had links with several of the major players of that scene including playing in bands with Michael Rother and Wolfgang Flur before they went on to Neu and Kraftwerk respectively. Wunderbar, of which this is the title and opening track is a smooth ride along golden rails familiar in feel and essence to any fan of either of these bands but worthy of a listen on its own considerable merits.
