"Of all the Hans-Joachim Roedelius solo releases, this is the one which most closely resembles the work of Cluster. Wasser Im Wind sees Roedelius use a wide variety of musical and sonic ingredients hitherto associated with Cluster, almost as if he...

"Wenn Der Südwind Weht ("When The South Wind Is Blowing") is the seventh solo album by Hans-Joachim Roedelius, originally released on Sky Records in 1981 (also known under the title Selbstportrait IV). "Where on earth does Roedelius find such a...

This was the first solo album by Roedelius, one half of Cluster and one third of Harmonia, two of the most significant Krautrock bands of the 1970s. In my opinion, this album is by far his greatest achievement as a solo artist (he has a zillion solo...

Not a reissue. First-ever release of this archival item.

"Breathtakingly beautiful piano fantasies from the year 1985 -- released for the very first time! In 1985, Hans-Joachim Roedelius was still perceived by the music community as an...

"11 unreleased compositions by Hans-Joachim Roedelius produced between 1990 and 2001. All of them are pearls of electronic deepness that show another side of the man that lives in the little Lower Austrian town Baden. His famous ultra-sweet piano melodies

"A collaboration between the legendary Hans-Joachim Roedelius and pianist/composer/actor, Christopher Chaplin. Roedelius was a member of Kluster (with Dieter Moebius and Konrad Schnitzler), and has been active ever since as a solo artist and in various...

Guitarist Michael Rother is a very important part of some of the most exciting and influencial music to emerge from the exciting and influencial German Krautrock scene. He was a founding member of the hugely influencial Neu!, played for a short while...

2nd and final album from the band's lifetime, which was releaesd in 1971 on Pilz, and is taken from the master tapes. Also included is 8 bonus tracks from their final concert in their hometown of Aachen, Germany, from 6/17/72....

I would basically agree with everything in the review below about this excellent and raw early progressive album, although I don't really think they sound so much like Tull at all - maybe a bit like This Was era, but just a bit. Lots of bonus live...

"Re-release of a German avantgarde-punk classic from 1981. Co-produced by Holger Czukay (Can) it was the counterpart of the Czukay album "On The Way To The Peak Of Normal", in which all the members of S.Y.P.H. also took part. The CD comes with booklet with unreleased photos and extensive liner notes by the S.Y.P.H. musicians Harry Rag and Jojo Wolter."

"Their third and last album sacrificed some of their signature-sound in favour of clearer influences from other progressive rock bands, mainly Camel, Jethro Tull, Gentle Giant and Barclay James Harvest. But "For All the Clowns" was still their best...

"Previously known as Subject Esq., it seems they changed name to Sahara to get out of a redundant contract with CBS. Personnel wise, the only difference in Sahara was a new keyboardist (Hennes Hering from Out Of Focus), and a full-time lead guitarist...

A previously unreleased album by the Krautrock band famous for the one album they released in their lifetime, Golem.

"Previously unreleased album by German trio Sand, recorded 1973-1982. Live events in the quarry and an archaic sound formed the background music of the young atomic age. In the meantime, after endless trance garage sessions, Sand drifted from the mythical landscapes to Berlin and mingled with various oriental influences. Vultures were scudding along the urban canyons while burning..

Legit reissue of a famously obscure (or obscurely famous) Krautrock proto-ambient classic from 1974, recorded with the 'artificial head stereo system' and produced by Klaus Schulze, who was probably just stopping by the studio to see if the band had some extra ciggies, as he had just run out...

"Originating from lower Saxony, the musicians of Sand were like many Berlin bands, being people drawn there by the unique possibilities Berlin had to offer. An early incarnation, as a five piece band...

"Previously unreleased album by German trio Sand, recorded in 1972. His First Steps is a forerunner of Golem, the legendary 1974 album from the cosmic and psychedelic genius that is Sand. After the split of P.O.T., the early Sand submerged as a threesome in the basement of Claudiusstrasse and built up an alchemical assembling shop, where they resurrected the archetypical Golem. Sand considered themselves as an exile community in a fascinating area -- full of distinctly bizarre energy. Cover painting by...

"Previously unreleased album by German trio Sand, composed and recorded in 1973, '75, and '76. The once-croaking raven now flies silently over the ocean, higher and higher. Where are you rolling, sun-ball, and why don't you fall? The sandy Golem crumbled into dust. His brave struggle against the mighty forces of darkness soon dissolved in voiceless space. There is something magical and inexplicable in creation, and Sand absolutely manifest these mysterious phenomena. Storytellers, musicians, shamans....

"Previously unreleased album from the '70s by German trio Sand. Still living in the mythical landscapes, Sand not not only created Golem, who was a being of the earth. Something else pulsated with a different energy of oscillation. The invisible beings of the air performed their dances. The Golem was large, mighty and of compact matter. He needed an external spirit to be navigated. Sylph creatures moved with the clouds and the wind -- from gentle breezes to violent storms, always sensitive to the chimes...

First-tier German symphonic rock from the 1970s, originally released on Brain. Using mellotron/Moog/Fender Rhodes, guitar/bass and drums, SFF were one of the greatest German progressive/symphonic rock bands of the 1970's.

"The fact that this album appeared at all in 1983 owes less to Günter Schickert and more to Steven and Alan Freeman, who sought him out for their Krautrock encyclopedia The Crack in the Cosmic Egg. On learning that Schickert had heaps of recordings...

I am personally thrilled to see this return to print; it was available on CD over a decade ago, but has been out of print since then. It is a minor German/Krautrock classic from 1979, which was fairly late in the game. Günter Schickert's first album...

I am personally thrilled to see this return to print; it was available on CD over a decade ago, but has been out of print since then. It is a minor German/Krautrock classic from 1979, which was fairly late in the game. Günter Schickert's first album was released on Brain, but this one, originally on Sky, featured Schickert's pulsing, multi-guitar overdubs with simple, but very effective drumming. Also has a small bit of strange, spoken and sung texts, which very nicely adds to the air of mystery/strangeness

"Conrad Schnitzler is as unpredictable as he is true to himself. If this sounds paradoxical, he reconfirmed the assertion in 1987 with an album which posed many questions and offered few answers -- his music more extraordinary than ever...

"M=Minimal is honored to be able to present Conrad Schnitzler's last work. Only a few days before he passed away in August 2011, he created this unique, almost 70-minute-long work. Thirty-six parts mixed into each other create a walk through his entire...

"Filmmusik 1 is a selection from Conrad Schnitzler's archive.
In Conrad Schnitzler's sprawling archive, there are two tapes marked Filmmusik 1975 A and Filmmusik 1980 B. It is hard to say which videos this music belongs to, particularly as the pieces have been left untitled. Perhaps there isn't really any film material at all. The dates are of no great help either, since the tapes feature the same tracks, albeit in varying degrees of quality.
Filmmusik 1 presents an initial selection of these...

"Bureau B present part two of their Filmmusik double release. In 1975, Conrad Schnitzler recorded various pieces of music to accompany films which had yet to be made. Fittingly, he labelled this collection of songs Filmmusik. Only one of the tracks - "Gute Fahrt" ("Nice Journey") - would ultimately be paired with a film, now traceable on the internet for all to see. The music is included on Part 1 of Bureau B's Filmmusik double release, erroneously entitled "02/1980". Why the incorrect title? The tapes...

Originally released by Editions Block in 1980, the Yellow album contains recordings from the years 1974.

Originally released by Editions Block in 1980, the Green album contains recordings from the years 1976 to 1981.
