2010 release. "The idea for forming an electric band was generated by Eroc and Lupo in 1965 when they were classmates at school. One year later it all started off with The Crew. In early 1971 the band was reformed under the name of Grobschnitt. They were the best. They were indescribable. Never again a non-commercial German band managed to crowd the places with audience like Grobschnitt did with their unique performance combining music and theatre, adventures and fun, and dream and reality. They were compared to the Grateful Dead, to the Mothers of Invention and even to Genesis and to Yes. They were a true fan's band; musicians always touchable for everyone. Which one of the bands nowadays is able - after performing for three hours (if at all) on stage - to go on shaking hands, signing autographs and replying to each question off-stage for at least another hour? For Grobschnitt it was all a must-have, no matter if it was in the Westfalenhalle, or in the Philipshalle, or at the Gruga or in one of the countless smaller concert halls and gyms in the German outback. Never after Grobschnitt was there such an excessive spectacle of heavy-metal, electronics, improvisation, meditation, optic and ecstasy like 'Solar Music.' Never before and never after a German rock fairytale gained such popularity like 'Rockpommel's Land.' Whether it was a dentist or a druid, Zappa or circus horse, politician, police-officer or professor - Grobschnitt made everyone show up. This new issue of The Grobschnitt-Story was remastered with the latest technical achievements and now finally transfers the recordings of our long history how it always was intended."
