Finally, a legit reissue of the 2nd Gila album, originally released by German Warner Bros. in 1973. Gila founder Conny Veit had. left the group to work with Popol Vuh on a masterful trio of albums (Hosianna Mantra/Aguirre/Seligreisungun,) but resurrected the Gila name for this record, recorded in conjunction with Popol Vuh's Florian Fricke (Mellotron, grand piano) and Daniel Fichelscher (drums, perc., bass). Sabine Merbach contributed an ethereal vocal presence. The result is much more similar to Popol Vuh's more majestic psych moments, but based around Veit's compositions (he performs on acoustic/elec. guitar, Moog, flute). A concept album dealing with the oppression of American Indians (based on texts by Dee Brown), this is a floatational classic. Typical elaborate Garden Of Delights packaging, with extensive Gila-reflective liner notes by Conny Veit. One previously unreleased (but unremarkable) studio track is added as well.
