The late 70s German band Madison Dyke made one album before fading into obscurity. Released in 1977 on LP (and reissued two decades later on CD) "Zeitmaschine" (The Time Machine) is a German prog rarity that deserves some attention. The band consisted of two guitarists (one doubling on keyboards, including mellotron), bass, drums and a lead vocalist who also played flute & mellotron. Not a "mellotron classic" by any means (but it will be of interest to mellotron collectors nonetheless), still it has some charm. Musically it is most aligned with other German groups of the period such as Novalis, Jane or perhaps Ramses. Lots of spaciness but quite a lot of symphonic touches as well. While it is not likely to take anyone's breath away (though a few people have described it as a minor 'masterpiece' to me over the years) it is certainly a likable album and will be of particular interest to mellotron collectors, those who love German prog and fans of pretty flute parts ala Camel. "Zeitmaschine" is a worthy piece of prog history.
