Ralf Nowy – Lucifer’s Dream

Ralf Nowy - Lucifer’s Dream DS409f front

It’s always nice to stumble across a quad album that a) i’d not previously heard of, or b) is not listed as being a quad release. It’s even better when it’s an enjoyable listen. This album was released on a relatively small European label and can sell for silly money.

    As much as I love that my Quad collection is expanding nicely thanks to this blog, it’s now almost as much about getting to hear albums I never would have otherwise, whatever the format. What an unexpected joy this album is, embracing you in a warm 70s hug – the mix sounds just great, and I concur on the thought on track 2 (even if it does pass more than a fleeting resemblance to Space Oddity…).
    Thanks so much!

    Holy cosmic Krautrock batman! This is a great listen, good music and a nicely discrete quad mix. I enjoyed this throughout. Definitely a thing of it’s time, it oozes 1970s.

    It occurs to me that track 2 might be good enough for the proposed quad demo disc, it’s very nicely played and a lovely mix.

    I was a serious Krautrock fan in the early 70’s – so I thought perhaps we were in for a couple of 25 minute improvs here ! Instead we have a set of highly melodic, disciplined pieces, and very enjoyable too ! As always with your releases the sound is great.

    Quite a fascinating listening experience. Very retro now. Also something I’m hearing for the first time. Where’s my incense and lava lamp when i really need it? Love this!

    From your artist link above, “This dreamy album was influenced by the burgeoning Krautrock scene and employed Eastern styles, a pastoral, classical influence, big band type jazz, psyche, pop and rock (with some disco groove thrown in).”
    Sounds intriguing…thanks for offering this OD and welcome back. Appreciate it! 🙂
