Biography

The Virgins first saw the light of day as “Virgin’s Blue Dream” in Essen, Germany at the beginning of 1968, founded as a blues-band, but actually they never played the old blues, because at that time a lot of new exciting and unforeseen musical developments shattered the rock-musicworld that practically no one in the business could escape, not even a bit honest (and boring) band like the Beatles. Their album Sgt.Pepper still today delivers evidence of that…so the Virgins too made themselves up to sail to yet unexplored musical shores.

The biggest part on this development probably had a certain Dr.Hofmann, who in 1938 discovered by incident a chemical compound that showed some really strange peculiarities and, starting about 1965, began to enjoy rapidly growing popularity among young people under the name of lysergic diäthylamide…LSD25.

But better let´s stay with the Virgins !
They made their first steps to world fame in the youth-center of their hometown Essen but pretty fast they grew out of this scene and got to be known outside the cityborders, what at that times wasn’t that easy, because the bands shot like mushrooms, and there were a lot of clubs, festivals and concerts in which the bands could present themselves.
But Virgin’s Dream always were a tic more creative, complex, fuller of spirit and also technically better than all of the others.
At the end of their carrier (in the beginning of 1972) the band had reached cult status in the area of Northrhine Westfalia, was on the way to be known all over Germany and a first album was planned.

    Virgin's Dream - The X-Tapes 71-72 (Ger 2001) - First saw the light in Essen, Germany at the beginning of 1968, founded as a blues-band, but actually they never played the old blues, because at that time a lot of new exciting and unforeseen musical developments shattered the rock-musicworld. A private pressing of 300 CD/s was made as a giveaway to friends; it was never sold officially. The music is quite unique. - -.-.-.-. om hari om ..... ॐะ
