Fantastic and hard to get solo project of Dorothea Raukes,the ex singerin of the famous German progressive,krautrock band Streetmark.
"Streetmark (was founded 1968 in Düsseldorf and released 4 LP between 1976-1981) were a highly talented group led by Dorothea Raukes, one of the few female characters of German progressive rock."( .

The whole albums is instrumental and very nice,it's style is close to Baumann,Tangerine Dream,Michael Garrison etc.Unfortunatelly this is the only solo album she ever made.

If my info is OK,Dorothea Raukes now teaches melody-art,conducts and lead choirs. I found these pages,but all are German:

If you know more ,let me know please!

This is a terrific album and we are much in Salty's debt for posting such an obscure gem. It brings together the spacey textures of mid-seventies Tangerine Dream with the pop sensibilities of the Neue Deutsche Welle to produce a joyously inventive and thoroughly charming sound. Not the typical kind of thing for this blog, but no less worth downloading as a result.
