"Erlkoenig, named after the famous Goethe poem and originating in Helmstedt on the former inner-German border, played powerful and inventive symphonic rock with occasional lyrics in English. Keyboarder Eckhardt Freynik, author of all the tracks, was the creative head of the band, and one would wish that he had received more recognition for his work as it seems that the world has lost an incredibly gifted musician. The guitar is also highly remarkable. Erlkoenig's only LP appeared in early 1973 with a circulation of 1000 copies and is basically known to collectors only. This CD contains four so far unreleased bonus tracks, partly in a different style. Details on the band, who unfortunately failed to make it, are to be found in the 24-page colour booklet. We are proud to say that we have managed to save their work from oblivion."
