Morpheus is a band which might be known well to the enthusiasts of German rock. The band came from the greater area of Warburg, a city situated in the eastern part of Westphalia. Their precursor was given the name Opossum. The name is connected with their bassist who was wearing an opossum skin tobacco pouch on his belt. Opossum, like later Morpheus, were playing relaxed instrumental jazz-rock. There were no LPs released, but in 1974 five tracks had been recorded of which the tapes were kept hidden from the public almost for thirty years. Now they are released by Garden of Delights, carefully remastered by Gerold Adler, the band’s guitarist and composer. One can hear by their tracks that the six musicians had a sound education. The sound was made by flute, saxophone, synthesizer, and – very extravagant – sometimes by two drums.
