Some “Krautrock” bands are a little bit over the top, and others are surprisingly great. Gila could jam out the blues with the best of them, but they never found the success that eluded them. Their best album,”Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee” was released in 1973. It seemed a little anachronistic for it’s time. The music seemed to have more in common with psychedelic rock than what was going on with rock music at the time (This was actually somewhat common in Krautrock at the time). It’s no surprise that this album has amazing vocals and multi-part harmonies. Excellent recording throughout. It uses American Indian themes and trances in the lyrics and music making for an awesome musical panorama.”I’m reminded of vocal harmonies used by many of San Francisco’s psychedelic bands during the late 60s; but Gila sound much more European(although they sing in English).”(Hedge) Florian Fricke of Popol Vuh even plays piano on “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee”
