Here is their 1st album.Producer is said that he did not know which switch carries out what done in the mixer room.
I want you to hear introduction of "Moving To The Country",a opening tune of this work.
This beautiful melody of twin lead guitar sounds,it is the evident thing that this great band is able to change the Germany Rock history after that.

And next tune, "Visions" is also a excellent music too.
you know,like this whispers-sound of the merotoron which flows calmly behind voice is the cool.

Although this album was anytime rare item in the rock history, but CD format (OSA/automatic call distribution941092) was released by bootleg in April 1994, and another CD release (PMS 7084-WP) was realized by probably official authority from Repertoire label in 1998.
