Here is your chance to own one great hard rockin' cd. If you like that heavy psych sound from the early '70's then Corporal Gander's Fire Dog Brigade is a must! This is a excellent sounding group from Germany. If you like Frame, Cravinkel, Dschinn or Message then your going to love this great release. Here's what one reviewer had to say about On The Rocks by Corporal Gander's Fire Dog Brigade:

Musicians Steve Leistner (vocals), Thomas Leidenberger (guitar, vocals), Andreas Bueler (bass), Lucian Bueler (keyboards) and Lucky Schmidt (drums, percussion, mellotron) started their recording career with an album of cover versions as Corporal Gander's Fire Dog Brigade: On The Rocks (1970). It was recorded before Leistner joined and they adopted the name Wind. In 1971, they recorded the legendary album, "Seasons" - one of the most sought-after German albums nowadays. This was the second of three releases on the budget-priced Plus label. This varied album captured Wind in different moods: "Dear Little Friend" was a thundering heavy rocker and "What Do We Do Now" - a vintage progressive rock anthem with fine use of organ and flute. "Romance" is a charming interlude for piano and "Now It's Over" had melancholic, folky vibes like Pink Floyd circa 1969. "Springwind" had haunting vocal lines, and finally came the 15-minute closing track, "Red Morningbird" with its floating, moody folk whispering, interrupted by some outrageously heavy outbursts. This is one of the classics of German progressive rock that will always be remembered for its powerful Hammond organ dueling with electric guitar sound; it should appeal both to fans of progressive heavy rock and those of folk-rock, as performed by the artists on the Pilz label. Highly recommended.
