Between ‎– And The Waters Opened (Vertigo ‎– 6360 612 Germany - 1972)


Formed in 1970 and initially named Between The Chairs, this second album by international fusion band Between based in Munich, has participated to the growing emergence for "world" / ethnic music in the complex universe of progressive rock.
It was released some two years after the debut and leader P-M Hamel had spent much time in India (and worked with Agitation Free), while Eliscu played with Popol Vuh and percussionist Black with Niagara. By recording time of ATWO, the group was now only a quartet, Stranz and Galway having understandably moved on. With a stunning colourful artwork, ATWO resembles much Einstig musically-speaking, but it is completely acoustic and has a few choirs/chants.

Record is strong EX very close to NM / Sleeve is VG+ (close to perfect with a 1cm light upper seam split).
