This 2002 Remastered CD edition of the 1974 studio album on Harvest Records comes with the Original Artwork and 4 Bonus Tracks!

Due to the great success in Germany of their debut album: ‘Mediterranean Tales’, TRIUMVIRAT started work in their second release that was to be called: ‘Illusions On A Double Dimple’, a concept album based around depression and personal relations.
During the recording sessions Hans Pape left the band and Helmut Köllen came in to replace him on guitar, bass & vocals. This was to become the most famous TRIUMVIRAT line-up as a rock trio.

Enhanced by the Cologne House Symphony Orchestra, ‘Illusions On A Double Dimple’ saw TRIUMVIRAT become an international name, and it was a hit in many countries, including the UK where it was seen as the band’s UK debut on Harvest Records.

Musician Line-up:
Jürgen Fritz (grand piano / Hammond organ / Moog synthesizer / electric piano / vocals / production, arrangements & direction of choir, strings & brass), Helmut Köllen (bass / acoustic & electric guitars / vocals) and Hans Bathelt (drums / percussion).
Plus guests: Karl Dewo (saxophone solo on track 2), Hans Pape (bass on track 1), Cologne Opera House Orchestra (strings - violins, violas & celli), Kurt Edelhagen Brass Section (brass - trumpets, trombones & tenor saxes), Peter Cadera (spoken word on track 1), Hanna Dölitzsch, Brigitte Thomas and Ulla Wiesner (all on backing vocals).
