Annexus Quam - Osmose (1970)

Genre - Krautrock, Jazz-Rock
A krautrock post again! Whoaaaa!
This is a weirdly beautiful album. Recommended for fans of German giants "Amon Düül II". This album crosses the limits of all your imaginations. The sound ranges from jazzy rock style Frank Zappa to psychedelic sounds of many early German krautrockers. There are a number of instruments used here, Clarinet, Trombone, Saxophone, Trumpet all add a mesmerising touch to the usual heavy guitar leads and haunting percussions. I wouldnt be exaggerating if I labelled this as avant-prog instead. Too bad this was another one of those records that got lost among the massively huge 70s rock scene.
