The Zakarrias vinyl record was recorded in the summer of 1971 by Austrian composer Bobby Hummer and a band of outstanding musicians selected for this recording. The album was released by the Deram record label. But the fact that Hummer did not get a job permit forced Deram to withdraw the Zakarrias vinyl record from the market right away.
This resulted in the few copies of the vinyl record being of great collectible value. In 2013, the Zakarrias album was sold for £2249 and so far, that is its highest selling price.
Musically the Zakarrias album moves on the paths of Progressive, Psychedelic and Blues rock with many folk elements. It reminds a lot of Led Zeppelin‘s third record, as Hummer sounds like Robert Plant at some points.
In case you want to get it, you will need to spend around 1700-2000 US dollars for one copy of the record in NM condition.
