Current release: Paternoster: Die Ersten Tage (The First Days)

The genesis of one of the world’s great rock albums: Austrian prog-psych masters Paternoster’s (Reserve Edition LP#1) soundtrack to Herbert Holba’s 1971 hippie sci-fi film Die ersten Tage (The First Days). Transferred directly from master tapes, never before released in any form.

Bonus 2nd LP – available only to subscribers – contains extended OST tracks and vocal demos of tracks that didn’t make Paternoster’s debut. Extensive, photo-filled booklet documents the history of the band, Holba’s film, and how psychedelic rock and film collided in Vienna’s 70s underground.

Download card for WAV files with bonus tracks, including the band’s demos for their masterpiece album, and the entire Die ersten Tage film.
