Organisation (Kraftwerk)Tone Float (180 gram pressing – with bonus track) ... LP
Innerspace (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $28.99
A rare early chapter in the career of Kraftwerk – an obscure album issued only in the UK, and one that features the duo of Ralf and Florian augmented by three other players! The sound here is heavily instrumental, and very experimental – almost in the mode of some of the more adventurous German groups of the time, particularly those on Brain – with a blend of jazz-like improvisation and close-in, repetitive instrumental passages – the latter of which certainly bear resemblance to the earliest music of Kraftwerk! The lineup here includes organ – often heavily distorted – plus flute (both electric and acoustic), bass, and a wide range of percussion instruments played with unbridled freedom. Titles include "Tone Float", "Rhythm Salad", "Milk Rock", "Silver Forest", and "Noitasinagro". CD also features a bonus track – "Vor Dem Blauen Bock", recorded for the Beat Club TV show in 1971! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ KraftwerkSoest Live (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Innerspace (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare early work from Kraftwerk – a live performance done at a time when the group was maybe more tied to the freakier, fuzzier side of the German scene than some of their later spare electronics – stepping out here on long tracks that really show a great ability to jam in an extended way! The vibe is a mix of psych, prog, and maybe a touch of jazz – but always with a nice sense of restraint, and that disappearance of ego that would mark the group even more strongly as the years went on. At this point, Kraftwerk is a trio – with Ralf Hutter on organ, Klaus Dinger on drums, and Florian Scheider on flute, violin, vibes, and plenty of electronics. Titles include "Stratovarious", "Megaherz", "Ruckzuck", and "Vom Himmel Hoch". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ KraftwerkTechno Pop (aka Electric Cafe) (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Kling Klang/Parlophone, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mid-80s gem from Krafwerk – a record that almost caught the world by a bit of surprise, and which showed that the four robotic guys from Germany were alive and well! The influence of Kraftwerk on the sound of early 80s music is undeniable – from rock to soul to hip hop – yet here, the group remind us that they're still better at the game than most – using spareness to create a lot more than some of the more bombastic younger groups of the time – bringing warmth to the digital age in a way that so many others could not! Titles include "Boing Boom Tschak", "Techno Pop", "Musique Non Stop", "House Phone", "Sex Objekt", and "Electric Cafe". LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1983. Very Good+ (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Move over Bam! This is the legendary bit of electro funk that along with "Trans Europe Express" forever put Kraftwerk in the crates of hip hoppers everywhere – a spare sublime track with a sly melody line over the top, perfect for breaking or just kicking back and feeling those chills run up and down your spine! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ KraftwerkLive In Koeln Sartory Saal – 22 March 1975 ... LP
Radio Loop Loop (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's a mid-70s photo of Kraftwerk on the cover – and the record features a great live set recorded right after their legendary Autobahn album – done with a similar long, sprawling vibe – but with a different feel than in the studio! Side one features a version of "Autobahn", structurally similar to the record, but with sharper edges and much more of a sense of darkness that hints at the earlier sound of the group – and the flipside follows with equally edgey takes on two shorter tunes – the amazing flute-riffing "Ruckzuck", and the nicely spacey "Kometemelodie" – which is the record we always promise to put on when a comet is threatening impact with our planet!

✨✧ KraftwerkMix (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Kling Klang/Parlophone, 1991. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The sound of Kraftwerk, updated for a whole new generation – almost as if the quartet had decided to show all the folks in 80s electro soul and the world of Detroit techno that they could still do things better than anyone else! The result is a set of fresh 1991 remixes of classics – still fortunately spare enough to retain all the charms of the originals, but sometimes with the groove picked up a bit for more contemporary dancefloors! Titles include "The Robots", "Computer Love", "Pocket Calculator", "Autobahn", "Radioactivity", "Trans Europe Express", "Metal On Metal", and "Music Non Stop". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Design MuseumElectronic – From Kraftwerk To The Chemical Brothers (hardcover) ... Book
Design Museum, 2020. New Copy Book ... Out Of Stock
An unusual book on electronic music – as it looks at the medium from the perspective of design – which is maybe not a surprise, given that it was put together by the Design Museum! The book is very visual – filled with full color images in a range of modes – some photos, some graphic – pulled together from a history of electronic music that starts in the 70s, makes a strong stop in the Chicago and Detroit scenes of the 80s, and shows just how much sounds and styles have blossomed in the decades that follow! There's text in the book, too – but it works more like exhibition placards – as the book guides you through images of vintage instruments, DJ studios, famous clubs, superstars, record collections, vintage flyers, and lots lots more. 192 pages, hardcover, and full color throughout.

Der PlanEs Ist Eine Fremde Und Seltsame Welt ... CD
Ata Tak/Bureau B (Germany), 1987. New Copy ... $16.99
The title translates to "it's a strange and peculiar world" – and there's maybe no better introduction to the mad electronic music of this wonderful German trio from the 80s! Der Plan were part of that special small slice of the German new wave – groups who didn't rely on darkness or angst to get their message across – but instead mixed together whimsical elements with musical experimentation – often in ways that were years ahead of their time! Imagine Kraftwerk scoring the music for cartoons, and you'd get part of the idea here – but that's hardly the start of the sonic delights within – as the album features short tracks in many different varieties – exploding with innovation at each twist and turn. Titles include "1 Mann 1 Ball", "Bleib Gold", "Kennen Sie Koln", "Frisch Verliebt", "Komm Zurick", "Get Out", and "Ich Hab Den Jordan Gesehn". CD

Jean Michel JarreEquinoxe ... LP
Polydor, 1978. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A seminal session from 70s French synth maestro Jean-Michel Jarre – his 8-part "Equinoxe" suite, a great bit of electronics that was almost France's answer to Kraftwerk at the time! Jarre's style is a bit warmer and more focused on the melody – and the range of keyboards and synthesizers used on the album create a rich tapestry of sound that almost has a soundtrack-y feel at the best moments. LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing with Sterling stamp. Cover has a bit of pen and a small sticker on back, with a thin strip of stray paper under the paste-on.)

Polydor, 1976. Near Mint- ... $14.99
France's huge contribution to the classic catalog of 70s synth records – proof that Germans weren't the only ones who could make huge-selling spacey albums! The record's strength is Jarre's slightly romantic approach to scoring, which creates some dreamy melodies that really help hold the extended suite of tracks together. Some tunes are spare, and others have a nice Kraftwerk-type beat! LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing with Sterling stamp, includes the Polydor inner sleeve. Cover has a small sticker on front.)

AVI, 1979. Sealed ... $34.99
An excellent bit of spacey club grooves from the enigmatic Rinder & Lewis team! The record has a sweet jazzy vibe that's different than some of their other records – and which seems to share equal parts influence from Kraftwerk, Larry Mizell, and Tangerine Dream. Includes the great spacey electronic track "Blue Steel", plus "Willie & The Hand Jive", "Harlem Shuffle", and "Arabella/Home". LP, Vinyl record album
(Still sealed, with a large hole in the shrink at the top right. Cover has a cutout hole.)

Shindig, 2021. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The Mamas & The Papas are on the cover, and the issue has a great article on the first year of the group – but there's also a really great look at the earliest years of Kraftwerk, as well as a portrait of the rare Pierre Cardin record label of the 70s – home to some very cool prog and jazz records! There's lots more too – features on Teenage Fanclub, Byzantium, Lilys, Love, Gary Higgins, and others – all decked out in the beautiful Shindig sense of style, with loads of images, and plenty of great stops along the way.

Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 22.99
A really fantastic compilation – and one that will take your collection of German electronic music far past the familiar territory of Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream! This series has always been great, but it also seems like the longer it goes, the deeper it digs – which is definitely the case here – as the genius compilers at Soul Jazz mix together rare cuts from better-known names, and more obscure artists from the 70s – in modes that also move past straight electronic music, to include some funky bits, proggy moments, and a nice shift between vocal and instrumental focus – so that there's a really amazing world of music within. Titles include "Pink Sails" and "Driving Sequence" by Klaus Weiss, "Wolf City" by Amon Duul II, "Guten Aben Leute" by Deutsche Wertabeit, "My Strand Eyed Girl" by Virus, "Patella Black" by Alex, "Dragonsong" by Dyzan, "Deluxe" by Harmonia, "Suleika" by Gunter Schickert, "Schopfung" by Witthuser & Westrupp, "Mellodrama 2a" by Et Cetera, "Nearby Shiras" by Kalacakra, "Tanz In Den Himmel" by Emak, and "Ballet Statique" by Conrad Schnitzler.

✨✧ Seu Jorge & AlmazSeu Jorge & Almaz ... CD
Now Again, 2010. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible music from Seu Jorge – and that's saying a lot, given how much we've loved all of his previous records! This time around, Jorge really knocks it out of the park – by stepping away from some of his tighter styles, and going for a looser, more organic approach that's totally great – forged strongly with the cool combo Almaz, which features members of Nacao Zumbi, and bassist Antonio Pinto – the guy behind the great music in City Of God! The result is a record that's completely fresh, new territory for Jorge – but a set that also still holds onto all the best charms of his previous records too – and given that he's always seemed poised for superstardom and global crossover, it's even more incredible that he's made such a rootsy record like this! The record's filled with cool covers – all given the Almaz twist – tunes by Kraftwerk, Roy Ayers, Michael Jackson, Jorge Ben, Tim Maia, and others – completely reworked, and tuned up with spare instrumentation that's mostly guitar, bass, and drums. Titles include "Everybody Loves The Sunshine", "The Model", "Cala Boca Menino", "Girl You Move Me", "Juizo Final", "Cirandar", "Tempo De Amor", and "Rock With You". CD

Roctober strikes again with another fantastic issue of music wisdom and knowledge from the far side of the spectrum! This time around, the spotlight's on Zory Zenith & Zolar X – who are covered in unusual detail – but our Dusty Groove ears are most tuned to the articles on Archie Bell, Kraftwerk, and Bernie Worrell. Yet as usual, we find our eyes straying all over the issue – captivated by features on oddball artists we'd never heard before, and drawn in by the always-great reviews, comics, and smaller bits in the magazine! Other features include It's The Law, Hall Of Dynamic Greatness, Gaybot, Nardwuar Vs Tommy Chong, and Willie Restum. Magazine
