Grobschnitt - Jumbo

Grobschnitt formed in 1970. Originally an eight-piece band, Grobschnitt released their self-titled album on Brain in 1972, before paring down into their standard five-piece unit. Their first record is stylistically very different from the symphonic sound that became their hallmark.
In 1975, Wolfgang Jäger alias Popo joined Grobschnitt as a bassist and the group released Jumbo. Jumbo fully realized the symphonic style the band had developed, featuring lush keyboard usage. Jumbo were released twice, with german und english lyrics. Both are included on this CD.
