Product Description

NEW REMASTERED CD RELEASE FOR THIS CLASSIC GERMAN
PROGRESSIVE ROCK ALBUM
BOOKLET WITH RESTORED ARTWORK, PHOTOS & LINER
NOTES.

ESOTERIC RECORDINGS are pleased to launch their new
REACTIVE imprint, dedicated to reissues of classic German
rock, in April 2010 with the first ever UK CD release of the
stunning Sunburst by SCHIKE, FUHRS & FROHLING.
Drummer EDUARD SCHICKE, Keyboard player GERD FUHRS
and guitarist and bassist HEINZ FROHLING were a uniquely
gifted trio who blended ambient synthesiser music and
space rock with jazz rock to create a style all of their own.
Sunburst was their second album, originally released on
the BRAIN label in 1977. A classic of the genre, this
REACTIVE CD reissue has been newly re-mastered and
includes liner notes by Heinz Frohling.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By S. Dinsdale on 23 Jun. 2010
Format: Audio CD
This was the second SFF album, and preceded the Fuhrs/Frohling duo work `Ammerland'. Like the debut `Symphonic Pictures' this also calls at all stations from the reflective bongo driven `Artificial Energy' featuring some very Jade Warrior styled guitar, to heavy fusion influenced material very obviously influenced by Mahavishnu. There is a fabulous range of instrumental colours and tempo changes throughout the album. It is always very tightly composed music and never veers off into indulgence and extravagant solos. There is a trace of King Crimson here and a little Patrick Moraz there, but this is really very confident music by musicians who could hold their own.

Once again the mighty Mellotron is to the fore and is used widely and wisely. The guitars range from acoustics to electrics and there is a rich array of keyboards including Moog, Clavinet, String Ensemble, Electric Piano, Piano and (ahem) Bassett ! (This would appear to be an organ) The recording by Dieter Dierks is superb by any standards.

The album is concise at 7 pieces in 35 minutes but packed with ideas none of which outstay their welcome. It doesn't have a fragmentary feel at all, indeed it flows together beautifully like a finely crafted piece of furniture. It all adds up once again to some thoroughly enjoyable and accomplished music which doesn't try too hard to impress. This is quality first division 70's instrumental music and should be an essential purchase for any progressive afficionado.

Came across this bunch via a Brain label compilation back in the 70s.Well worth a listen (or ten).Get "Symphonic Pictures" -their best work.

One of the best album of German progrock of the 70s 5 Oct. 2010
By Marco A. Cayuso Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Finally this album had the reissue that deserved!
For me SFF was one of the very best bands of symphonic rock in the Germany of the 70s, probably with Eloy and Grobschnitt. Their style was less "rocker" than those two groups, and was more oriented to the melodic and electronic atmospheres of acts like Tangerine Dream.

I think "Sunburst" is the best album of this band, and here they have their more prog sound ever. There are really wonderful moments in this album, and some pieces like "Troja" and "1580" are truly master works of the 70s prog rock.

If you can afford to get also the other two albums of SFF "Symphonic Pictures" and "Ticket to Everywhere", go for them, specially the first one. But if you can only buy one, get "Sunburst"!!
