Join In ‎– Kentalope Island
Release date:1974
Genre: Jazz Rock

Formed by drummer Edward Friedrich, Jörg Radeck on guitar and Udo Dobrzanski on bass originating from Marl (north of Essen) in 1968, and going through numerous changes over the years, first influenced by British rock and blues acts, 'Join In' later moved ever more onto jazzy prog and fusion realms.
Associates of 'Think', whose Ricky Ramor and Frank Voigt were amongst the many that passed through their ranks, Join In recorded their album at the same studio, with Eroc as engineer.
'Kentalope Island' their sole album recorded in the spring of 1974, which was released in the same year on the small 'Menga' label.
'Kentalope Island' is a pleasant record, with some slight 'Think' references, but much more fusion, mixing jazzy musics with soft rock and prog elements typical of the era, comparable to many others, 'Guru Guru' circa Globetrotter, 'Cry Freedom', or Dutch acts like Alquin or Solution.
