German progressive rock band Abacus released four albums during the early '70s; a self-titled debut in 1971 was followed by Everything You Need and Just a Day's Journey Away the following year and Midway in 1974.

J├╝rgen Wimpelberg takes on himself to play keyboards, guitars, drum programming as well as vocals.
