During the years 1977-1983 Schulze
recorded some of his more introspective works, such as 'Mirage', 'Dune' and 'Dig it'. On this 8th part of this series, fine a selection of stuff that was archived beside his official albums in those years. A large part of this 3CD-set forms the appearance of concert recordings (made on a cheap, but stereo radio cassette recorder) from Klaus
' 1979 tour with singer Arthur Brown
, although CD1 for instance features more than 40 minuts of studio material.
Also included (on CD2 and CD3) are two rare fragments of very interesting radio interviews from that period - How far Schulze
went during concerts can be heard on 'The Martial Law', where he gives it all on the Minimoog. What a contrast, compared to the elegant '"L'affaire Tournesol' on CD2. Just listen and be careful: this is angry, but melodic stuff in the typical Schulze
The late 70s/early 80s work of Schulze
is often overlooked and underrated. Hearing the material featured on this 3CD-set, one can discover the 'other side' of that particular period when analogue was still there, but digital was about to become the power to be.
