Amon Düül II – Yeti (Improvisation)

The title track from the band’s magnum opus, 1970’s ‘Yeti’; and what a track it is. After disc one, which comprises of short tracks (even the first one which is disguised as a ‘suite’) the listener is faced with a side long track. This is said track, and it swirls around in an extremely psychedelic haze with the band’s trademark eastern guitar sounds weaving in and out of the Day-Glo tapestry. Heavy riffage appears, and fades out. The coda at the end of the track is truly immense; and luckily listeners of the album get to hear that again when the following track, ‘Yeti Talks to Yogi, kicks in. Kosmische Krautrock my people.
