Kosmische Kuriere: Walter Wegmüller – Tarot (1973)

"Tarot" was the very first release of Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser's german Krautrock Label "
Kosmische Kuriere". In December 1972 Kaiser invited some musicians to Dieter Dierks Studio to record the cycle of Tarot by swiss painter Walter Wegmüller. An amazing all-star cast of musicians backing him with the music: Manuel Göttsching and Hartmut Enke both from "Ashra Tempel", Jurgen Dollase, Harald Grosskopf and Jerry Berkers ("Wallenstein"), Walter Westrupp and Klaus Schulze.
What this piece of vinyl makes remarkable and unique are the lyrics in swiss-german language.
