"Great first album of near Nuremberg (Bavaria, Germany) based band re-released on vinyl for the first time. After he left famous 'Ihre Kinder,' guitarist Muck Groh looked for new musicians to play his idea of German progressive rock. With sax- and flute player Klaus Kreuzeder he found, after a lot of changing line-ups, a congenial partner to create a sound not only in the tradition of Bavaria jazz-rock oriented bands like Embryo, Out of Focus, Missus Beastly etc. but also with that certain Krautrock feel, that led the music to an unique style, originating as a highly inventive fusion band with strong percussion, driving rhythms and lots of space for solos from guitar, sax and flute ('Crack in the cosmic egg'). Humanum Est presented a most proficient instrumental band with a strong identity with multi-tracked guitar-riffing and near ever-present wind solos, a real classic of the genre. Long tracks like 'Papa Doing,' 'Demmerawang,' 'Hodibbel,' or 'Sechs-Achtel' give an idea what the musicians were able to do. While their live-performances -- they toured nearly all the time -- they often played hour long versions of their classics to their enthusiastic affiliates (comparable to KRAAN). Remastered from original tape, comes with insert (bandstory/photos). A must have. Limited 500 copies."
