I'm Brazilian, I've always loved music and since I was little I buy and I listen to rock.
During the 70's I met a magazine called Pop, which I christened German Pop, since it was of Germanic origin, I did not understand what was written in the great majority, but it was there that I met the groups that I publish here on the blog today. Rock made in Germany is one of my favorites, but my taste is very eclectic.

Sou brasileira, sempre amei música e desde muito pequena compro e ouço rock. Durante os anos 70 conheci uma revista chamada Pop, que batizei de Pop Alemã, uma vez que era de origem germânica, eu não entendia o que estava escrito na sua grande maioria, mas foi ali que conheci os grupos que hoje publico aqui no blog. O rock feito da Alemanha é um dos meus favoritos, mas meu gosto é muito eclético.

Jurgen Fritz (Germany-Kraut) 1989.Es Ist Nicht Leicht Ein Gott Zu Sein (Soundtrack)

Though sometimes quoted nonchalantly as the German Keith Emerson or Rick Wakeman, the former Triumvirat leader Jürgen Fritz may indeed have been a phenomenal keyboardist in his early days, yet he has been nowhere near as prolific as his British counterparts.
He has done some production work (nothing notable), and featured as a guest with Satin Whale, Tanned Leather, Helmut Koellen, Gänsehaut (two albums), Trude Herr (a German pop singer), Hollywood, and even with Eric Burdon, but not much as a soloist.
Apart from some film and TV soundtrack work (which seems to be unreleased), we only know of the one actual solo album, which is also a film soundtrack, a computer music opera, totally overblown conceptually, intriguing for the very pompous title "Hard To Be A God" it reminds of some early Rick Wakeman instrumental works, but with a more modern instrumentation. After this, he worked in the duo Millenium.

Ouverture / The Eyes Of Anka / Rumata's Arrival (opening titles) / Surens's Escape / Kyra's Theme / Anticipation / The Valley Of The Swords / Rumata & Pampa (The Ride) / Love Theme / The Shadow Of Death (Reba's Theme) / The Battle / The City Of Arkaner / Rumata & Pampa (reprise) / Finale & Epilogue / Hard To Be A God

Early Triumvirat (up to 1976) are among my favorite prog / Kraut albums. Was not familiar with any of these related releases (Jurgen Fritz solo, Jessica, Zomby Wolf, etc)...going to give these other bands a listen...thanks for sharing!
