Cluster & Farnbauer - Live in Vienna 1980 : 2 x CDs

SKU 05-Important 308
Reading the release blather below makes me feel so old; I remember when the cassette of this was released; I never did get to hear that cassette, but I can finally hear this now!

"Live In Vienna is the eighth full-length album by German electronic music outfit Cluster and their first and only album with Joshi Farnbauer. It is the first of three live albums recorded by Cluster. Until now Cluster & Farnbauer had never been reissued on compact disc. On June 12, 1980 Cluster performed at the Wiener Festwochen Alternativ with Farnbauer. The performance was recorded and released as a limited edition cassette on the British York House Records (YHR) label. It was reissued in Germany on the Transmitter label of 'GrĂ¼ne Kraft' owner Werner Pieper. The style of the music is highly experimental and discordant and very reminiscent of Moebius and Rodelius' early work with Conrad Schnitzler in Kluster, albeit with updated electronic instrumentation. Live In Vienna was the only Cluster release never reissued on CD. This reissue includes archival material as well as newly mastered audio and new artwork created by Cluster member Dieter Moebius."

For the record this was released on C.D. but not in it's entirety. It was released by Hypnotic in 1996 as two 16 min bonus tracks on their versions of the first two Kluster albums.
