As with the Gila CD on this label, this is a previously unreleased WDR radio broadcast, from 10/18/72. An art-inspired jazz-rock group, often compared to the Soft Machine, who recorded two albums for Philips in 1971-72. From Crack In The Cosmic Egg: "One of the great, but little known, wonders of Krautrock, originating from Stuttgart we believe, Eiliff on their two LPs developed a most unique style of powerful rock fusion. Eiliff destroyed barriers between rock, jazz and established progressive genres, with lengthy intensive compositions that twist and turn with startling complexity, or riff with amazing power and stability. In their unique concoction songs were rarely used, and only then to counterpoint the instrumentals, and when necessary get over an idea that couldn't be achieved without words. They had the power of Mahavishnu Orchestra, the invention of Guru Guru, the diversity of Out Of Focus, and really they were purely excessive, with diverse elements blended together as only experienced in Krautrock."
