Guru Guru - Early Archives, Live 1969 mp3 album

Complete your Guru Guru collection. -) A couple of years ago I copied these recordings on audio cassette and sent them to Mani Neumeier, whom I know personally.

GURU GURU is a Krautrock, Progressive Rock artist from Germany. In the early 1980s the GURU GURU entity went into stasis while Neumeier focused on jazzy solo work as well as other side projects. He also furthered his musical education by taking instruction with an Indian drum master and released an esoteric drum album entitled "Privat" in 1991.

Guru Guru's live performances in the late 1960s and early 1970s were politically left-oriented. They organized concerts together with the Socialist German Student Union, read political texts between the songs, and sporadically gave concerts in prisons. Their shows were extravagant and anarchistic, some of the musicians lived together in a commune in the German Odenwald region, experimented with hallucinogens (one of their songs is titled The LSD March/German: Der LSD-Marsch). 2016 Acid Guru Pond (Split Album- Bardo Pond, Guru Guru, Acid Mothers Temple). List of ambient music artists.

Whatever, German rock experimentation was at least a toddler when Guru Guru’s future rhythm section attempted to get their ’69 groove on. Brought into tighter defining focus, krautrock usually refers to the post-Kosmische sound of Neu!: a relentless Autobahn-driving soundtrack with a hypnotically precise metronomic beat. Prior to finding the meandering, early-Hawkwind vibe that came to define them, GGGB produced a floundering sax-heavy approximation of Albert Ayler’s Free Jazz. The sound, meanwhile, is lamentably poor. If the historical significance were greater, or the jam more inspired, you’d forgive it, but they’re not, so you can’t.

Reviews about Guru Guru - Early Archives, Live 1969 (8):

Tracks 1 to 5 have been recorded in February 1969 at Kunstakademie Stuttgart (Germany) on a small battery tape recorder (mono, reel to reel). The guitarist was Jim Kennedy - 100% sure, I sat on the floor in front of him.The event was named "Aka-Fasching" (Academy Carneval) and the circumstances there were rather weired or let's say "psychedelic" : Guru Guru and most of the audience were on acid or dope, me too of course... ;-) A couple of years ago I copied these recordings on audio cassette and sent them to Mani Neumeier, whom I know personally.So far (January 2018) I didn't know that a CD has been made of these "low-fi" recordings... found one track on YouTube just accidently.The original recordings on tape reel were made by a guy from Berlin who lived in Stuttgart at that time, but I don't remember his name (hey, it's 49 years ago). Anyway, he borrowed me the recordings to copy them. When I sent them to Mani some 4 or 5 years ago, he didn't mention that he got exactly the same recordings from another person in 1980... I'll check it out and talk to Mani when he's back from Japan.I don't want to miss thanking Alan Freeman for his efforts to improve the sound. The old copies sounded pretty muffled.

hi & thanks for digging deep into your underground memory! i was at aka70+71 too, so its nice to meet somebody who experienced the same 'vibrations'. other Guru gigs i attended where in a jazz-cave in Esslingen (summer70) and TU Stgt (summer 71 or eventually 70). i would love if the Gurus would publish everything they have from the early days (tapes, photos, docus, etc) because it was a fascinating time.
Mr.Savik
I'm sure, that they didn't play at any of the AKA summer festivals.

Hello FS (obviously you are German), my memories of that night (I stayed until about 3 or 4 o'clock) are different : Mani, Uli and Jim - all dressed in violet batic t-shirts - played several sets, always fading out after about half an hour while "Gila" (Gila Fuck") from Stuttgart faded in from the other corner... and then vice versa.I'm quite sure that there was NO introduction of Ax Genrich, at least not as long as I was present there that night. As I wrote in my previous post, I saw / heared Ax first time next year, when they played on that platform on the stairway.I heared Guru Guru the very first time in September 1969 at a festival in an old factory in Fürth. They were 3 musicians then : Mani, Uli and an organ player. Then, a couple of months later, the same band appeared again at TU Stuttgart, but with the participation of Jim Kennedy. Guru Guru indeed sounded more free-jazzy, as long as they played with the organ player. Jim Kennedy brought more rock influence into their sound - all that Hendrix-like wah-wah playing...Colourful times indeed and a very special spirit and Zeitgeist - very different from today. For me personally, as a young guy of just 16, a bit too much dope and LSD ;-)

great information! so this means that these 5 tracks with JimK were from aka1970 - wow, i had my 1st Guru exposure there. do you know whether the Gurus played another gig at the Kunstakademie in 1970 (maybe before the summer break ...?)how was the Guru concert you attended in '69 - similar style or more free-jazzy?Thanks!

Thanks for your comment. After 50 years my memory could have failed. As far as I remember I saw Guru Guru first at Technical University Stuttgart in 1969. They were 4 musicians then : Mani, Uli, an organ player and new member Jim Kennedy. So it must have been 1970 when I saw them at AKA-Fasching. Mani and Uli played together with Jim at this gig, but there was definetely no introduction of Ax Genrich. Then, one year later, Guru Guru played with Ax. I remember quite well, because they played on a platform on the stairway to the upper floor. I was a bit disappointed, because the band was almost invisible for the audience :o)

hello EA, very interesting - i joined the in-crowd at the aka-fasching feb.1970 and became an instant guru-fan. if i remember correctly they played their 1st set with JKennedy and then later that night introduced their new ax-slayer AxGenrich - but according to some docus Ax met them first in Berlin in april70, so maybe my memory is from another gig??? basically i attended all stuttgart-area guru gigs in 70-72. what about your memories of these colourful times :)

Obtained via a tape swap from a friend in the early 1980s, I sent a copy to Mani Neumeier to see if he could identify when or where the recording was made and who the guitarist would be. He wasn't exactly sure on any of those things, except it was definitely 1969 and not Ax Genrich. We now know (99% sure) it is Jim Kennedy.That original cassette copy was rather raw and low-fi, but just about listenable. It was obviously brilliant music. The raw roots of a lot of the material heard later on UFO. When converting my cassette archive to digital, I was surprised that by some tweaking, processing and EQing I could get the recording to sound much better than many things I'd heard documented on CD. Several levels of processing further to that you now have what is on this disc. It's still a pretty raw and wild crunchy mid-fi, but played through a good stereo system the quality is now adequate.Later, when seeking-out material for the audio sector in The Crack In The Cosmic Egg CD-Rom Mani supplied a few other unreleased early live oddments dating 1970 to 1972 which remain otherwise unreleased, so it made sense to add those as bonus tracks here for a better value disc, adding up to an early history of Guru Guru.
