"Tomorrow's Gift -1970 Germany":
Tomorrow's Gift originally formed as a blues and soul-rock band evolving by the end of the ‘60s into progressive rock, but still remain faithful to their roots.The line up consisted of Ellen Meyer (Vocals) Carlo Karges (guitar, percussion), Manfred Rurup (organ), Wolfgang Trescher (flute), Bernd Kiefer (bass) and Olaf Casalich (drums).Casalich was later replaced by Gerd Paetzke.
In 1970 the young band (three members were still teenagers) set out to release their debut double album.
As expected the production yielded a rough unpolished edge giving the album the typical vintage progressive sound. The album features an abundance of guitars, organ, flute and drum solos accompanied by Meyer’s vocals which have been likened to Janis Joplin. After their self titled effort the band had split in 1971. (by request)
