Jürgen Fritz's notes about the album


After deciding to do an album based on the story of POMPEII, it was not an easy to gather value - able information for an inside look on those dreadful events that took place almost two thousand years ago. Most of the books on POMPEII read novel-like and describe cultural, political and social backgrounds of life at that time and place. Knowing the unpossibility to include all this in one album, I concentrated on what seemed obviously most important - the earthquake 62 a.d. and the final destruction seventeen years later.

Consequently, the idea of the album turned into a fact-fiction-fact story - the facts building the frame for fictions little stories that are related to POMPEII, however, they might be looked at individually.

During the six month of recording and two month of preparations there were enough times when the spirit of this album was about to overtake - it almost collapsed.

There were a lot of people that helped to keep it going, and there were a lot that tried the opposite. - Pressure sometimes frees unknown strength. It did. That is why I am thankful to these people. All of them.

Jürgen Fritz
July 1977
