Father Son And Holy Ghosts (Bonus Tracks)

by Embryo
Father Son And Holy Ghosts by Embryo
Released: May 1972
Label: Fuego
Germany's Embryo has garnered more than a few comparisons to Can through the years. They aren't inaccurate, yet they do tend to overlook Embryo's love of jazz-informed rhythms. Released in 1972, Father Sons & Holy Ghosts swings with a nervous, up-on-the-beat energy, something Can rarely, if ever, explored. Setting up the rest of the album in fine fashion, the opener "The Special Trip" is edgy and tight. On "Marimbaroos" and "The Sun Song" (the latter of which contains some great horn work by Edgar Hoffman), Embryo embeds their wonderful rhythms in a proto-world fusion sensibility.
