"the trip", like all the other songs from our album "first",recorded 1971 by Conny Plank for PILZ-records (now available as CD on ohrwaschl-records), was our "real krautrock"-song.
never it was the same song twice; we totally improvised it each time we played it. only structured thing was the guitar melody-theme from Harald Thoma and me singing along with it.(find out, when you hear it live 1991 )
unfortunately Harald Thoma doesn´t appear in this video, because he was about to get draughted by the army and our manager replaced him with the red-haired Jürgen Schneider. Short time after that we fired the manager and brought back Harald Thoma to the band.
The sound you hear is the original line-up:
Andreas Cornelius - drums; Joachim Schiff - bass; Harald Thoma - guitar,vocals; Rainer Wahlmann - vox, harp
