Album

Kraftwerk is the debut studio album by German electronic band Kraftwerk. It was released in Germany in 1970, and produced by Konrad Conny Plank. Chief Kraftwerk members Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider used two drummers during the recording of the album Andreas Hohmann and Klaus Dinger. Their playing provides the music with a rock edge. This proves to be quite distinct from Hütter and Schneider's previous band Organisation, or the following pair of Kraftwerk albums, Kraftwerk 2 and Ralf und. Kraftwerk is the first album by German electronic band Kraftwerk. It was released in November 1970, and produced by Conny Plank. This proves to be quite distinct from Hütter and Schneider's previous band Organisation, or the following pair of Kraftwerk albums, Kraftwerk 2 and Ralf and Florian which were both. Kraftwerks debut album barely exists its been quietly ushered out of the official records by de facto leader Hütter. A pity, really. Its not tearing up any trees in the 31st century electronica stakes, but its still a fascinating record. More of a full band at this point, Kraftwerk are skirting around the edges of free jazz on Ruckzuck with Schneider mucking about on the flute, of all things, and not for the last time and getting motorik on the epic Stratovarius.

The discography of German electronic band Kraftwerk consists of 10 studio albums, two live albums, one remix album and 26 singles. Formed by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider in Düsseldorf in 1970, Kraftwerk were part of the krautrock scene. However, the group mostly found fame as pioneers of electronic music, showcasing their styles on a series of concept albums. At this point, electronic music was seen as something far too arty and obscure to ever trouble the average person's listening. This all changed with Autobahn. Released in 1974, Autobahn represented a seismic shift for music. It became a worldwide the wake of this, Kraftwerk became a far more conceptual band. Not only were they playing machines, they claimed -the machines were also playing them. This was highlighted by a press conference called by the band to promote their 1978 album, The Man-Machine - in one of popular music's most famous pranks, robots, designed to look like the members of the band, appeared in the place of the real members.

I have this Vertigo version as described with the exceptions being that the inner sleeves are just plain paper and not printed "Vertigo" inner sleeves. The L.P. labels are indeed Vertigo logo and the B sides indicate Made In England. The "a" in Wellenlange is also missing the umlaut.

My version has different matrix/runout numbers to all of the verions listed. Does this count as a different release?

My copy is in a non-gatefold sleeve but has the cat#6641 077 on the spine. The two records are in paper sleeves with a cut-out on one side only. The cover has the Vertigo spiral in the top right hand corner, but the records have the spaceship design labels with the Vertigo spiral at the bottom under the track listings. Apart from the Vim/Vom error on the cover I note that the tracks are listed on the cover in the wrong order for each side, ie the reverse to the discs, except for side 4 where only the last two tracks are reversed. The cover also says Ruckzack, not Ruckzuck. It says (P) 1972 on the discs and I know I bought this in the UK (I left in late 1973) so I am a little confused as to the print date. I also have the other Ralf and Florian album on Vertigo, 1973.

As well as the Wellenlange mistype on the label some copies (not sure how many) have Vom Himmel Hoch spelt correctly on the label, but mistyped as Vim Himmel Hoch on the inside of the original gatefold sleeve. This mispelling was duplicated on the 2005 unofficial reissues, but they do not have a gatefold sleeve. Mine is an original, albeit quite tatty, with swirl inners and labels, and was bought SH mid 80s (so not a bootleg).

Kraftwerk is one of my favorite bands. I grew up listening to "home computer", although the first electronic song I heard was "pop corn" by Hot butter.The techno pop and similar bands can be read at:http://musitronic.blogspot.comSee you later.

Strange case of an original reissue, as this is a package of the two first Kraftwerk albums, already released in Germany before as Kraftwerk 1 and Kraftwerk 2. Although Kraftwerk is most remembered for its synthesizer spaghetti, these albums prove that there is more to them than you may have realized. The first album indeed incorporates avalanches of electronics, but hardly any synths. Flute and organ rule. Embryonic forms of later developments are found, like short-ridden rhythms, a narrow harmonic horizon and mechanically affected repetitions. But at times the music veers towards sonic landscapes, industrial sounds inclusive. Where a drummer is heard, both Can and Faust come to mind, but mostly there are alternatively serene and unsettling carpets of sound. This must have sounded completely non-commercial in 1972. By ditching the drums, the second album is only rock by far-fetched association and there is in fact nothing left to connect this music to any anglo-american styling. Some Asian influences can be determined on ''Klingklang''. Much more extreme is ''Atem'', that consists of almost three minutes worth of a breathing human being, slightly electronically altered. A far cry from anything that ressembles the blues! ''Strom'' is a lesson in complete immobility. These courageous attempts make Kraftwerk worth remembering, much more so than their robotics of later date.

Following on from DJ343's comment, the release 'Doppelalbum' is an entirely different Vertigo compilation of Kraftwerk's earlier material. It should not be confused with this release which was basically Kraftwerk's first two German albums (Kraftwerk 1 and 2), released for the UK market in a gatefold sleeve. Two different labels are in circulation for this release, one is the standard Vertigo symbol as used on all their 70's releases, the other is the rarer white label with black spirals which become very hypnotic if watched while record is spinning on turntable!
