2017 reissue

A reissue of Wichlinghauser Blues the debut album by legendary German guitar improviser and instrument inventor Hans Reichel (1949-2011), originally released on FMP in 1973. Wichlinghauser Blues is a resonant and hilarious document of the nascent genius recording his peculiar and wondrous music alone in a studio.

Acoustic and unfiltered electric guitars turned back into the supremely malleable instruments they were before they'd been firmly encoded as tools for rock or pop or jazz.

Reichel uses a homemade 11-string guitar (with three pickups) for all the tunes except the first one. Reichel is like an improvising Harry Partch, investigating the genesis of lute music.

First ever release on CD. Remastered from original tapes; Packaged with a gatefold and tip-on sleeve, with a reprinting of the original design.
