More Info:

Double vinyl LP pressing housed in gatefold jacket. Remastered by Dieter Dierks and Dennis Fl├╝chter. Walter Wegm├╝ller (1937-2020) was a Swiss-Jenish artist who grew up in difficult circumstances in Bern. After training in Basel, Bern, Paris, and London, he began his artistic career. In addition to painting and sculptural works, Walter Wegm├╝ller occupied himself with the entire spectrum of art. He gained widespread international attention, especially from 1974 onwards, with the publication of his Zigeuner Tarot. He was successful at countless exhibitions in Europe and overseas and was repeatedly awarded prizes and distinctions. However, he never forgot his origins as a Verding child and "Rome child from the Kalderasch tribe." In 1973, he released the album Tarot with an all-star band. Successful musicians such as Klaus Schulze, Manuel G├Âttsching, Harald Grosskopf, Dieter Dierks, Hartmut Enke, J├╝rgen Dollase, and Walter Westrupp played in the band. It remained Walter Wegm├╝ller's only foray into the world of music.
