Legal reissue of this 1969 German psychedelic classic (and NWW listmaker), plus two bonus tracks from their non-LP 7-inch. "This important group began life as a soul-rock combo named SOUL CARAVAN in the mid sixties. They managed to get an album of such music out (Get In High/ (1967) and then in a mysterious way became XHOL CARAVAN. Under this name they recorded Electrip in 1969, it was one of the first German progressive albums. The album started with a toilet flush, which gave way to three Zappa-esque fusion instrumentals. Side two opened with the long "Raise Up High," an energetic mayhem of aggressive playing (a kind of jazz-soul blues-psychedelia) with wild and gutsy vocals. This was the album that sort of kicked the unique German jazz-rock fusion into life." (Cosmic Dreams At Play)
