Sergius Golowin - Lord Krishna von Goloka DS311f sm

In 1973, Sergius Golowin teamed up with Klaus Schulze, Bernd Witthüser, Walter Westrupp, Jörg Mierke, Jürgen Dollase and Jerry Berkers (the latter two of Wallenstein) to record the album “Lord Krishna von Goloka”. This very experimental album featured chantings by Golowin over improvised electronic instrumentation and acoustic guitar, and is considered by many to be a classic example of cosmic krautrock.

    Music is far out. Mix is pretty rubbish – nearly everything up front, with reverb at rears. There are some bits of vox and other things at back but not enough. Would have been great if the mix was as adventurous as music. (I also thought front right was much louder than front left.)

    A bit too cosmic and not enough krautrock for my liking, but interesting nontheless.

    Ah, if nothing else I cannot wait to play this for my wife – who is German – and when she asks “what is this?” I can say, Why, this is cosmic krautrock! Didn’t you recognize it? Mein Gott!

    As always, thank you so much, Herr OD!

    Wow. I’m looking forward to hearing this one. I’ve listened to the stereo version a number of times.

    The wide range of different artists and music styles you offer to us, is unbelievable.

    I heard of these musicians (of cause Klaus Schulze and Witthüser und Westrupp) and have some albums of them, but this album is completely unknown to me.

    Thank You again for all your efforts!

      I will second that.The depth of my gratitude is hard to express.Being able to experience all the treasures that would otherwise be lost to history,and broaden my musical horizons is a wonderful treat.
