Needless to say this was the last album of Wallenstein with this line-up, a good work of t Rock with a flexible sound, that mostly works well but not always succesful. The top tracks though are pretty great and ''Mother universe'' deserves a warm recommendation. I have to write something about a very pleasant music experience I have had when I listened to this record: "Mother universe" by the German.
This album has an average beat per minute of 122 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 108/150 BPM). Tracklist Mother Universe.
Band Name Wallenstein. Album Name Mother Universe. Music StyleKrautrock. Members owning this album1.
Wallenstein was founded in the summer of 1971 under the martial name of Blitzkrieg by the ambitious student of art (at the Art Academy Düsseldorf), Jürgen Dollase, from Viersen. He had already been trained in classical music, playing the piano and the double bass, and he had played in skiffle as well as in jazz formations. In addition, the businessman and band manager, Peter Gielen (Octopus Productions) from Möholt, and Corrado Faccioni, Italian buddy and former road manager of Dollase, were involved in the foundation. In the same year, the German record label Pilz released Mother Universe, succeeding the debut album (also from the Pilz record label) as fast as lightning (Blitz). Re. The album cover photo by Harald Grosskopf depicts Dollase's grandmother. In 1978, after some changes in the musical style, Dollase replaced all members of the band.
