Seems like the Dr. Dopo Jam albums on Zebra were dogged with disaster. Not only did they get the musician details wrong on the first (meaning that many copies had a horrible erratum sticker on the back cover) they also got the LP sides the wrong way round, and totally messed-up the listing for the side-long suite "VI: The Complete Pentagram" (the title lost it's meaning, not being track 6 as it should have been).

With this second album the typographer got most of it right, except that virtually all the times are completely wrong! Add those up on the cover and you get a 56 minute album, which was hardly possible in those days! It's still pretty long though as a 50:04 album. For those interested, here are the correct times...
A1 4:35, A2 3:20, A3 1:40, A4 2:50, A5 3:43, A6 1:53, A7 6:32
B1 3:10, B2 9:06, B3 5:19, B4 7:35

Oh, this is supposed to be a review - right? Well, what were Dr. Dopo Jam? They were a real big Danish combo, with lots of winds and keyboards, headed by the eccentric and talented Kristian Pommer. Quite why their early albums only ever came out in Germany on the Zebra label we may never know. Sitting alongside albums by Achim Reichel, Pinguin, Night Sun, et. al., they were in good company. Close in feel to German bands like Creative Rock and Emergency, but with lots more Zappa/Mothers influence, and a lot of that Nordic/Scandinavian sound. The debut has the edge creativity wise, although this second album is also rather good, mixing in even more influences than you could dream of being possible!
