Birth Control: Operation CD
Ohr present a reissue of Birth Control's Operation, originally released in 1971. Re-release of the second album of the Berlin outfit on the original Ohr label. Produced by the famous photographer Didi Zill in 1971 at Hansa Studios.
"Birth Control's second album, Operation, stands as one of the band's finest recordings, getting the vote as the second-best album of 1971 by one of Germany's leading music magazines.
Operation has Birth Control employing a nine-piece string section as well as a smaller brass entourage in order to produce a larger sound, and while their progressive air is just beginning to flourish, a rather large difference in musical strength and instrumental craft is noted right away.
Not fully abstract or left-of-center just yet, the powerful crunch of Bruno Frenzel's guitar surely leads the way, dominating the rhythms of every track while complimenting the aeronautics of the keyboard passages..." --Mike DeGagne, AllMusic
