Last update, December 2011
die erste 2066 LP in orginals + Bonus LP

SB LP 076 Prof.Wolfff - Same

Prof. Wolfff is a rock band formed in 1971 in Ulm, Southern Germany. With their first and only album, the band set new standards in relating rock music to lyrics in German language.
Musically Prof. Wolfff can be positioned somewhere between IHRE KINDER and MURPHY BLEND. Heavy guitars plus a classical-styled Hammond organ dominate their varied song material, with even a flute on one track. 40 years later Second Battle releases a vinyl re-issue for the first time -
in close collaboration with the band. A booklet with rare photos and concert reviews is included.

SB LP 054 Krokodil: An invisible world revealed

Finally available on vinyl from SECOND BATTLE - official and legal from the mastertapes. Pressed on 180 gram virgin vinyl. KROKODIL goes progressive rock: This album isn't called a 70‘s milestone for nothing! You can hardly describe in detail what the band, working closely with sound wizard Dieter Dierks, accomplished here. "Invisible World" simply contains each and every trademark of the genre - great song writing, absolutely far out arrangements, highly imaginative solos and psychedelic mellotron and sitar sounds. 12 page booklet in 10“ format with the band story and never before seen photographs.

SB LP 052 Krokodil: Same

During the early 70's this Swiss KROKODILwas one of the most exciting imports in the German rock scene. Its debut album which was released in 1969, contained blues-inspired rock with many progressive touches. No wonder that KROKODIL was often regarded as a Swiss version of the GROUNDHOGS. This album is mega-rare now and hasn't been re-released on vinyl before. Finally here's now an exact Vinyl release of this fantastic LP in a limted edition of 1.000 copies. Coming with the original glossy foldopencover and pressed on 180 gm virgin vinyl ..

Irish Coffee

SB LP 069 Irish Coffee Live im Rockpalast 2005

Once regarded as "one of the best hard rock groups to ever come out of Belgium", unfortunately Irish coffesplit-up in 1975. 30 years later, in 2005 to our surprise there was a comeback at a Rockpalast gig in December 2005. This music is timeless and we listen to modern rock that has it’s roots deep in the seventies – from the altogether 14 tracks 8 tracks have been released in the seventies on singles and on the one and only LP. Our CD contains the entire performance of about 64 minutes. Last but not least: The recordings have been especially remastered once again for a perfect CD and vinyl and have now a much better „Power-sound“ and will bring to smile all rockfans that like early seventies rock to listen to in top quality.
