the Crack in the Cosmic Egg:
Motherhood was the unlikely name of Klaus Doldinger's psychedelic fusion band, who eventually transmuted into the bands Passport (Doldinger, Meid and Lindenberg) and Hallelujah (Vincent and Forsey). The debut, is pretty dated and chintzy pop 'n' soul sounds done with a psychedelic jazzy flair, all instrumental and largely is covers of well-known hits alongside a couple of originals in the same vein. A step on from Doldinger's "Paul Nero" project, but not really of much interest. The second album saw three new members join, and is often comparable to British rock fusion bands like Colosseum and early Nucleus in many ways, in which Motherhood covered a wide range of styles from psychedelic pop through to jazz-rock. A nice album, and very much a product of the era, showing promise of greater things to come.
