Amon Düül's "Disaster" from 1972, or are you referring to "Wolf City"? Either way time to dig...
The Exploration of Metal and Progressive Rock - Page 44
You have to put a 11 after the name. There is an Amon Duul and an Amon Duul ll The both existed at the same time. The best book on this subject is Julian Cope book called http://www.amazon.com/Krautrock-Sampler-Julian-Cope/dp/0952671913
There is one more favorite from them which I will post at a latter time. The name is hard to remember.
I guess I have heard most of their stuff. The Original Soundtrack was purchased by me when I was 13. Later "I'm not in love" made them a popular band and it was played 30 times a day on the radio. The Original Soundtrack made 10cc famous. It is like a pop record but very opera/musical rock opera which was the in thing at the time after Jesus Christ Superstar and Tommy. I guess they are an enigma of a band really. There later stuff was definitely not progesive in the classical sense we use the word. I really don't know what I would call their style. It did have prog elements and pop elements.
Remember too that Killer Queen was a total hit in 1975. An opera/rock number. The question could be asked if Queen was a progressive rock band?
