Orange Peel was a resident of the Hessian Brothers Grimm Hanau band that existed from 1968 to 1971. Stylistically, showed the five musicians inspired by the blues,and Jimi Hendrix. In particular,the guitarist Leslie Link zealous audible after the sophisticated technology of the prematurely deceased, strings magician from Seattle. A roaring organ Hammond moved the sound of the published in 1970 only album noticeable in psychedelic heights. In extravagant improvisations compositions unfolded despite its unmistakable Blue foundation a progressive character and moving in herbaceous climes. Orange Peel,incidentally, were the first station of the German legend drummer Curt Cress ( Emergency,Passport,Atlantis, triumvirate,etc.) which could provide at the age of just 17 years impressively demonstrates his skill. Also,over thirty years after its dissolution,there are the musicians of Orange Peel together at irregular intervals to give occasional concerts in their home town of Hanau. But then,the repertoire includes almost all cover versions of several classic Blue and Hendrix compositions. Even such popular songs like the Stones "Satisfaction" are fond of songs belonged under the very well-attended performances.

Orange Peel their album untitled,was released originally on label Bellaphon (BLPS 19036) in 1970 under the direction of Dieter Dierks. In his " hallowed halls " in Köln at Stommeln created numerous classic Krautrock and also the only album by Orange Peel has several " herb Features " on . It can be regarded as a stylistic link between the psychedelic legacy of the late 60s and the just burgeoning self-awareness of the rock scene in German lands.

Based on an audible Blue foundation ventured the young musicians from Hessen in the depths of psychedelic rock that particular presents itself in 18:18 minutes long opener "You Can not Change Them All" in the wild improvisations, where a dissolute string processing in the best Hendrix - style and organs Hammond,squabbles in energetic fashion duel. In this psychedelic - spacey braid then sneak even subtle Heavy elements that are reminiscent of Deep Purple. Short term gives the percussion sound even reminiscent of Santana Latin element. Iron Butterfly also can be cited as further inspiration. The pathetic vocals of frontman Peter H. Bishop gives the whole thing a typical Teutonic character who fits perfectly, with the unpolished rough heavy psychedelic character of the song material. Friends of the dirty sounds of the Hammond organ are the herbal- indigenous titles certainly find favor right away and this keyboard instrument is so manic woven into the sound,so it is no wonder that even today still speaks of the "pig organ". Although these raw,blues based gait is in no way directly comparable to the British progressive rock imprint ,moving away confidently Orange Peel from the common pattern of rock music and were in energetic instrumental parts of their ingenuity run wild. With the cover of Blue classic "Tobacco Road" Blue inspiration was paid tribute.
