Amon Duul II Yeti: Deluxe Edition on Limited Edition Colored 180g 2LP
First Pressing on Colored Vinyl
Cleopatra Records will roll out a series of limited edition deluxe vinyl re-issues of five landmark albums by one of the most influential experimental rock bands of all time, iconic German Krautrock legends Amon Düül II! Each album has been meticulously put together with digitally remastered audio made specifically for these re-issues and comes pressed on 180 gram vinyl packaged in glue-on heavyweight chip board jackets.
The first two re-issues to appear will be the spectacular 1969 debut album Phallus Dei and the hugely influential 1972 classic Wolf City, followed by the release of the 1971 double LP Dance Of The Lemmings, 1973’s Vive La Trance and an extra special lenticular jacket printing of the group’s masterpiece, 1970’s double LP Yeti.
Cleopatra pulled out all the stops for the final installation in their deluxe vinyl Amon Düül II reissue series. The band's second album, Yeti, was quite a musical achievement and contains some of their most impressive work, delivering their thick, full-fledged, multi-layered sound with dense instrumentation and a certain epic vastness. This is Krautrock in the full depth of its power: huge, towering, dark and completely devoid of any happy optimism, but still bound full of energy.
Instrumentally this album is pure magic with some great psychey sitarish acoustic guitar plucking and hand percussion. Yeti also abounds in the fusion of electric guitar, bass and drum interplay. The second LP in the set is totally devoted to improvisation and in itself stands up as some of the most intriguing music you're ever likely to hear.
