Jane -1976- Live At Home

Jane -1976- Live At Home [Live/Deluxe] (Digipack)SPV2008

Jane got together in Hanover in autumn 1970. Although repeated line-up changes in the subsequent years resulted in an inconsistent musical style, Jane attracted a massive following, not only in Germany but also at their shows in Austria and Switzerland, counting among the top sellers in the German music scene of the Seventies. Their eleven LPs, released between 1972 and 1982 on the German rock imprint, Brain, sold over two million copies.
Their debut, Together, and the concept album, Fire Water Earth & Air (1976), are considered milestones in German rock history – just like the live cut, Live At Home, from August 1976. Even experts rubbed their eyes in surprise when Jane rented the huge Niedersachsenhalle in Hanover for the recordings of their live album.
Live At Home was a great success. The extra bonus material includes the band’s full concert at the WDR radio studios on 8 January 1977 on the radio show 'Nachtmusik', with amazing versions of classics such as Fire Water Earth & Air, Out In The Rain and Hangman, plus an interpretation of their epic Windows that is even longer than the one featured on Live At Home. Truly rare stuff!

"Jane" had a misfortune to be baptized as "Krautrock", although it's just an exceptional prog-rock band from Hanover (founded 1970: Peter Panka on drums and lead vocals, Charly Maucher ob vocals, Werner Nadolny - keyboards, vocals, etc, etc). Strongly influenced by vintage Deep Purple (circa "Smoke On The Water"), on this excellent live album (1976) the band performs top-quality geniune rock. Early albums of "Jane" are truly good - 1973 Here We Are; Fire, Water, Earth & AirJane III. Together with "Frumpy"Live, "Jane" is a cornerstone of progressive rock, and without this album any collection is not complete . The founder and main driving force of "Jane", Peter Panka, died in 2007
