SWF Sessions 1973 (LHCD 56), is a compilation of live in-studio performances for German radio. The cuts include a 12 minute version of the band's masterpiece "Life Is Only" and a brilliant version of the Zappa composition "King Kong." In addition, a 13 minute concert performance of the band's previously unreleased "Make Up Your Mind" clearly shows the direction of the bands early work, featuring the incredible musicianship of Jeff Beer on the Hammond organ. Founded in summer 1971 in Germany by German organ player Jeff Beer, Dutch guitarist Rob Terstall and English bass player Ray Brown and drummer Stuart Fordham. This is high level guitar and organ dominated progressive rock. After the release of thier one and only album on Vertigo in 1972, ODIN were invited by German radio SWF to produce 4 titles for a radio show in February 1973. A 12-minutes version of "Live is only" and a 11-minutes version of the Zappa composition "King Kong" are fine examples for ODIN's terrific musicianship. "Oh no" (6:30) and the Terstall composition "Turnpike lane" make the radio recording session complete. In addition to the radio recordings there is a bonus track from a concert in autumn 1971 titled "Make up your mind" (13:10) which is an impressive example of the bands early works. All titles are digitally remastered. The booklet contains a comprehensive band history with a lot of rare photos. 01.Turnpike Lane 02.Life is Only 03.King Kong 04.Oh No 05.Make Up Your Mind (Bonus)
