aah - the lovely Renate Knaup Krotenschwantz - somewhere between Grace Slick and Siouxsie............
Amon Duul II were one of my favouritest bands ever
all their albuls are well worth checking out upto Vive la Trance, the later ones' appeal becomes more, er, selective
Renate also appeared on a number of equally wondrous Popol Vuh albums along with Danny Fichelscher
I wouldn't dismiss the original Amon Duul albums either - true most of them are just long percussive workouts, but they sound pretty savage in places. Paradieswarts Duul is completely different - kind of long folky jams - very much of their time, I suppose. I love 'em
