The Trans-Music Express-A Kraftwerk/Organization Discography

I. P. Hale
 
Organization/Tone Float
Organization/Tone Float
"Record No. 1. This is actually an Organization album, the band being made up of Ralf Hutter, Basil Hammoudi, Florian Schneider, Butch Hauf (Hee Hee Hee) and Alfred "Fred" Mönicks. IF CD, BOOTLEG!!!!!"
Kraftwerk
Kraftwerk
"At this point only Ralf Hutter and Florian Schneider were in the band. They brought in Klaus Dinger and Michael Rother, who both left to form NEU! Never Re-released, THIS IS A BOOTLEG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Kraftwerk 2
Kraftwerk 2
"This is again, just the duo of Hutter and Schneider. The influential Conrad "Conny" Plank produced this, Tone Float, Kraftwerk and Ralf und Florian. Never officially re-released. IF NOT 1972, BOOTLEG"
Ralf & Florian
Ralf & Florian
"A step in the right direction. This was Kraftwerk's first step away from Krautrock towards Electronica. On a live performance of this the band picked up Wolfang Flur. IF NOT 1973, BOOTLEG!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Autobahn
Autobahn
"This is the first album in which the band has its 4 part current line up. An edit of the 20 minute title track reached #11 in the UK. It was meant to resemble driving. The first ever reissued album."
Radio-Activity
Radio-Activity
"Radio-Activity is the first Kraftwerk album that is considered widely as techno. Although they reached more success with Autobhn than this, it marks the point where they changes from rock to techno."
Trans-Europe Express [IMPORT]
Trans-Europe Express [IMPORT]
"This continues the travel theme of Autobahn, only this time on a train; the trans-europe express to be specific. On the cover, they apear as 4 suited and booted young men (very rair in the 70s!)"
Man Machine
Man Machine
"In my oppinion, this is the best Kraftwerk album. I love the emotionless plodding of Metropolis. The wierd thing about the album is that the hit single: the Model, went to #1 in the UK 3 YEARS later!"
Computer World
Computer World
"Kraftwerk's first 80s album, and to be honest, you'd be lying if you said that they belonged in any other decade. There secoind best album. I love Home Computer (not too keen on Computer Love)."
Electric Cafe
Electric Cafe
"This was their fourth serious techno record. This took so long to make (5 years) because the originally proposed album (Technopop) was ditched and Hutter had a near fatal cycling accident. Never mind."
The Mix
The Mix
"The Mix (as the title suggests) is a collection of remixed earlier work. The band's official reason: they didn't like the idea of a "best of..." release. Great if you like the earlier work."
Expo 2000 [Us Import]
Expo 2000 [Us Import]
"Originally intended as a jingle for a Hamburg 2000 advert it was released as a single in 1999/2000. This is their first original work since 1986. I know it's not an album but I just have to include it"
Expo 2000: Remixes
Expo 2000: Remixes
"Remixes of above released 2002."
Tour De France
Tour De France
"Their first full album in 17 YEARS!!! Fuelled by the bands joint hobby: cycling, and the 100th anniversary of the first Tour de France (and their '84 single release: Tour de France). Travel theme here"
Minimum - Maximum
Minimum - Maximum
"Another attempt by Kraftwerk to avoid the ominous "Best of..." album. Officially a live album from the 2004 tour, it is more of a Greatest Hits album with people cheering occasionally."
Aerodynamik + La Forme (Remixed By Hot Chip)
Aerodynamik + La Forme (Remixed By Hot Chip)
"Yes, I know it isn't an album but it's remixed by Hot Chip for pity's sake! Their last release to date. Originally tracks on Tour de France Soundtracks."
