XHOL-CARAVAN; BERENDT, JOACHIM ERNST

6 inches x 8 1/2 inches. Pink construction-like paper. Holes punched and very light fading to left side. Includes a blurb from the renowned jazz critic Joachim Berendt.
Rare show flyer from one of the earliest significant Krautrock groups, XHOL-CARAVAN. The flyer is from a relatively local show for them in Mainz (they hailed from neighboring Wiesbaden) and dates to their most important year as a band, when they released their definitive album ELECTRIP. XHOL-CARAVAN had also recently renamed themselves, a change that was prompted by the departure of an American member as well as a shift to a more psychedelic/free approach from one based in soul. Provenance: (1) from the personal collection of an early member of KRAFTWERK (1970-1971), Eberhard Kranemann; (2) to Christoph Wagner, author of DER KLANG DER REVOLTE: DIE MAGISCHEN JAHRE DES WESTDEUTSCHEN MUSIK-UNDERGROUND.
