ZAKARRIAS – ZakarriasFormat: LPCatalogue: TPT252Barcode: no barcodeRecorded in London in the summer of 1971 by Austrian singer/songwriter Bobby Haumer and an English pick-up band, Zakarrias was issued on the highly collectable Deram label. However, Deram withdrew the album almost immediately when they discovered that Haumer didn't have a work permit. Mysteriously sounding heavy progressive with sensitive folk-psych moments. Great dynamics with contrasting guitar leads. The results have been compared to outtakes from the third Led Zeppelin album, but while the lead vocals are certainly reminiscent at times of Robert Plant, the overall sound and general air of quiet pretension is probably closer to Van der Graaf Generator leader Peter Hammill's early solo work.Tracklist: A1 Country Out Of Reach 4:05A2 Who Gave You Love      4:06A3 Never Reachin'     5:01A4 The Unknown Years     7:00B1 Sunny Side  3:44B2 Spring Of Fate     3:18B3 Let Us Change     3:52B4 Don't Cry     4:08B5 Cosmic Bride       6:08
