In 1974 Amon Düül II had achieved with “Hi jack” a late masterpiece, which already in the beginning was sold about 30.000 times only in the U.S. – a success, which seemed hard to take up. Now, their next record had to become very distinctive: they didn’t want a simple combination of tracks, which had hardly anything in common. What they really wanted to do was a rather unusual survey of German history, even if brief, in a pretty crazy story, which was supposed to form the framework. In her book Ingeborg Schober writes: “In the beginning of June 1975 several musicians of Amon Düül II came to see me for discussing the concept of the new record, whose title was ‘Made in Germany’. As expected, the project had already dwindled away and the only option left was to fix a story, at least to some extend coherent, from the already available text material. Actually, the plot was based on Chris Karrer’s song lyrics ‘Mr. Kraut’s jinx’, which already comprised one of the record’s meanings, and which I really loved. I still love the song today, not only because of one of its lines: ‘’cause future ain’t tomorrow, future is today!’” The recordings then were done in the summer at the reliable Munich “Studio 70”, again with Jürgen Korduletsch as producer and David Siddle as sound engineer. Like almost always every Düül had helped to write the tracks. In between them the very popular melody “La Paloma” could be found, but then was changed completely and next recreated as “La Krautoma” with a fantastic e-guitar – an impressive as well as convincing, even if quite original, version.
