Altona is a German band, founded in 1971 in Hamburg suburbs as reincarnation of krautrock band Thrice Mice. Dropping former band's classical edge in preference for a jazzier front on their debut, Altona played a lively fusion that crossed many boundaries, but kept the Blodwyn Pig feel that dominated the early Thrice Mice recordings. Mixing excellent early jazz fusion with psychedelic rock elements album's music is a real gem. In contrast, their second album Chickenfarm saw a mellowing of style, to funky edged jazz-rock with blues and soul tendencies, and an indistinctive Anglo-American type brassy-rock sound. A few Altona members later reappeared in the obscure band Dirty Dogs.

This is a totally unique recording featuring very rare studio demos! Taken from the soundboard during the Golden Heart sessions sometime 1994/95. Includes five very good unreleased songs.

Also featured on this official bootleg are 5 songs from the Hamburg 2001 radio broadcast, also in very good sound quality.
