Rarest German Symphonic Rarity PART TWO: Audite (1983)

This was featured on Tom's list here:

First let's see what Tom had to say:

" Today we start a new series of obscure early 80s German progressive and fusion albums. We have 5 to report on that have arrived via various sources recently. Today's post is courtesy of Midwest Mike and is probably the rarest and most sought after of the bunch.

Audite is a vocal heavy German language album, with a clear affinity for the classic 70s progressive rock sound. Sophisticated arrangements are apparent, and the electric guitar work in particular is exemplary. Synthesizers and even a little flute propel Audite to interesting status. No getting away from the canned early 80s production though. I was most reminded of Anabis' "Wer Will?" album though Anyone's Daughter "Piktors Verwandlungen" also sprang to mind. A good one for aficionados of the 80s German symphonic sound, though a bit of a slog for those looking for more dynamic instrumental input." 

It was a priority none, a devastating assessment, guaranteed to cause it to languish in obscurity-- until now.  I actually think it's excellent in the chosen style of 'seventies symphonic'. And as he said, it's rare as hell.

I was surprised to see that although only one person requests a reup, about 50-100 people have downloaded it after a couple of days, showing there is a real need still for these older postings. So it's not just for the benefit of one anon when you do these reuploads.
