Kluster - Admira

This is kind of an amazing thing. This is previously unreleased recordings in extremely good sound, considering its rarity and age, from 1971. I was talking to Ken Golden about the early German stuff and whether or not you like it or hate it, we both agreed that it's really amazing to think about what the German progressive bands were doing and how EARLY they were doing it. I mean, Gentle Giant were recording "Acquiring the Taste" and Pink Floyd were recording "Meddle" (both great albums, btw), but in Germany, they were doing this total freaky electronic/noise/freak-out stuff that wouldn't be absorbed until about 20 years (or more) later! Anyway, this is pretty significant and historic document

"Admira is sourced from original master recordings discovered by Kluster member and Tangerine Dream engineer Klaus Freudigmann. Along with Vulcano, also being released at the same time on Important, Admira is presented here for the first time in this deluxe package. These intense sessions were made with Schnitzler at the helm, as always, after the departure of Mobius and Roedelius from the group. Conrad Schnitzler founded Kluster in 1969 along with Roedelius, Mobius and often Klaus Freudigmann who had multiple roles within the group as a player, engineer and instrument inventor. Eventually Roedelius and Mobius left Kluster and continued on as Cluster while Schnitzler and Freudigmann continued as Kluster often exploring the communal aspects of music by bringing new people into the group."
