Amon Duul / Utopia  "Utopia" 1973 United Artist Records UAS 29 438 1 Stereo German Import Vinyl Record LP
Amon Duul / Utopia "Utopia" 1973 United Artist Records UAS 29 438 1
In 1973 Amon Duul II released two albums, the first was "Wolf City" (United Artists UAS 29406) for which no two tracks featured the same lineup of musicians, due to the instability of the band, through which various musicians were passing at a great rate.., and because the band had wanted to make "Wolf City" a double-LP, they recorded additional material with three musicians from the original Passport, that which was issued as Utopia by “Utopia” (United Artists UAS 29438 1 in Germany and United Artists UAG 29438 in Britain). It is a bit jazzier and bluesier than most of Amon Duul II’s work as Passport nominally played a jazz “fusion” of sorts.

Amon Duul II is among the most highly regarded of the German progressive groups of the 1970s and was the second incarnation of the Amon Duul entity, originally a political commune in Germany that happened to record their extended, drugged-out jam sessions. The three Amon Duul albums are apparently a result of the same three day jam session in 1968. At some point, a few members of Amon Duul decided to get serious about the whole music thing, and thus Chris Karrer, John Weinzierl and Renate Knaup established Amon Duul II with the intent of addressing their more ambitious musical concerns. This core, supplemented by a number of other musicians, released their first album, Phallus Dei in 1969, and it must have already been clear that this was an outfit to be reckoned with. The next album, Yeti, arguably Duul's finest, is a shuddering beast of pyschedelic splendor, among the finest progressive rock albums out of Germany. Tanz der Lemmings continues the classic streak, less pyrotechnic and more 'symphonic' perhaps, but only by Amon Duul II standards. After Tanz... the output becomes reportedly spottier. Wolf City is good, but more streamlined, and it's advisable to steer clear of everything after Vive La Trance.

After numerous failed attempts at cracking a more commercial market with albums like Made in Germany and Pyragony X, along with consistent line-up juggling, the group eventually disbanded in the early 80s. Around this same time, John Weinzierl went on to form a third incarnation of the group, Amon Duul UK, which saw him collaborate with a number of British rock luminaries such as Robert Calvert and Guy Evans over the course of that group's sporadic output. Due to the recent revival of interest in the old Krautrock bands, Amon Duul II reformed in the late 90s and released a couple of studio albums which have come alongside a surge of compilations, remixes and of course reissues of all their classic 70s albums.

Carnival in Babylon was released in 1972 by United Artists (UAS 29327). “Reputedly, was planned as a double album, but due to difficulties within the band, and obviously United Artists’ pushing for an album that would sell after their new-found success in Britain, Carnival in Babylon was released as a single LP with shorter song-based tracks.

1973 saw the release of two albums as well. The first was Wolf City (United Artists UAS 29406) for which no two tracks featured the same lineup of musicians, due to the instability of the band, through which various musicians were passing at a great rate and because the band had wanted to make Wolf City a double-LP, they recorded additional material with three musicians from the original Passport, that which was issued as Utopia – by “Utopia” (United Artists UAS 29438 1 in Germany; United Artists UAG 29438 in Britain). It was a bit jazzier and bluesier than most of Amon Duul II’s work as Passport nominally played a jazz “fusion” of sorts.
