Kraan - Live (1975)

I personally, don't think Kraan sounded better on a live album than this one. This is an amazing album and for anyone not familiar with this band this is probably the best introduction to them.

Not only do we have an excellent recording but the bass of "Helmut Hattler" and the rhythm guitar work of "Peter Wolbrandt" is very spectacular, as are the other members too. There's a brilliant version of "Kraan Arabia" which is as always a favourite, and many more great versions of there more familiar songs.

Essential Live Krautrock album!
