"This is the one that started it all -- German tenor saxophonist Peter Brötzmann's first album in a long career that would spawn many, many more recordings in the years to come. Recorded with the rhythm section of bassist Peter Kowald and drummer Sven-Åke Johansson, this is intense, unrelenting free-jazz with little in the way of clear structure or melody... this is music that gets by on force and pure energy, rather than polite tunes or other musical decorum. Apart from a few brief moments of quiet during 'Sanity,' the second track, this stuff just doesn't quit, with Brötzmann's consistently abrasive, high-pitched wailing leading the charge and the other two members stirring up a pretty good ruckus themselves (Kowald, especially, gets in a good sting-sawing bass solo on 'Morning Glory')." --All Music Guide; pressed on 180 gram vinyl. Recorded by Günter Schütte, 1967, in Wuppertal. Peter Brötzmann (tenor & baritone saxophone); Peter Kowald (double bass); Sven-Åke Johansson (drums).
