Ballermann" is an unequal album showing both GROBSCHNITT's space and symphonic sides. A cross-over between their debut album and "Rockpommel's Land". Recommended to fans of Krautrock and Space Rock, especially for the superb "Solar-Music" suite. A mammoth double-disc release, 'Ballermann' would be the first Grobschnitt album to feature the group's trademark comedy routines and the first album in which they fully realised the lush, keyboard-rich symphonic sound that would mark the rest of their 1970's output and win them a well-deserved place amidst the pantheon of symphonic prog greats and a.
Released as a double-album, Ballermann featured humor and silly songs which followed from their entertaining live shows. The second record contains the first released version of "Solar Music", an extended instrumental suite with origins in a piece by The Crew in the late 1960s. Solar Music" would see frequent performances throughout the band's career as well as being released in two more versions during the band's existence. Grobschnitt released another live album, Volle Molle, in 1980, documenting the recent Merry-Go-Round tour. Popo was soon replaced by Milla Kapolke, before recording the Illegal album in 1980. The subsequent Illegal tour was highly successful. Keyboardist Mist left Grobschnitt before the 1982 recording of Razzia, a NDW-influenced album. Toni Moff Mollo, a friend of Eroc and long-time performer in live shows, was promoted to full member

German progressive rockers Grobschnitt took a major leap forward on their second album, 1974's BALLERMANN. While the ambitious, double-length release featured a fair amount of eccentric drummer/ringmaster Eroc's trademark goofy, Monty Python-esque clowning, the Krautrockers also took a definitive leap from jammy rock to a full-blown e style, with the 33 1/2-minute "Solar Music" suite, one of German prog's masterworks, which would also be memorably revisited on their 1978.
