Details first - originally credited as "Elektronische Music" on 2CD card promos that circulated in March 2010 - it was scheduled for Monday, 5 April 2010 release but then delayed to 12 April and the word "Deutsche" added on at the beginning. For this review I’ve included track timings, the original vinyl LP each song is taken from and the year of release.
UK released April 2010 - "Deutsche Elektronische Musik: Experimental German Rock And Electronic Musik 1972-83" by VARIOUS ARTISTS is a 2CD set on Soul Jazz Records SJR CD213 (Barcode 5026328302133) and plays out as follows:

Although I also might add at this point, that 'record shop employee' is sadly, a phenomenally redundant description of HMV etc employees.
So when you're in trouble you call on a friend, this one being Simon. He had been on tour as photographer for a 'super-duo' and I felt his ligging credentials were top notch. Plus the fact he's a top bloke with a musical listening history similar to mine.
So he suggested Deutsche Electronische Musik - the best (and maybe only) 100% quality early 70s German Electronica cd compilation there is. I hesitate to use the term Krautrock - but if it helps - there it is. This compilation is brought to us by the same people who came up with 100% Dynamite! Ska, Soul and Rocksteady - not obvious bedfellows.
I now find myself posting this because I appear to have been given some musical hope. I still cannot find anything new/contemporary that doesn't sound derivative or, frankly, beardy and fleet of fox... (I do like them - just hate seeing them on the cover of EVERY magazine over the last 3 months. Go away.).
So as a result of buying this cd, I have purchased some Neu, Harmonia and Cluster. I seem to like the Roedelius, Moebius and Rother stuff mainly, but it also has re-kindled my Kraftwerk love too.
I also recommend the BBC documentary Krautrock - The Rebirth Of Germany which features some AMAZING footage, and is so inspirational.Read more ›
