CD's From My Collection: Deutsche Elektronische Musik 2: Experimental German Rock and Electronic Music 1971-83

What it says on the tin: The equally brilliant follow up to the Soul Jazz Records double CD comp of German rock and electronic music of the 70’s and early 80’s, coined Krautrock rather xenophobically by the Brits. You get all sorts of styles here from psychedelic rock and folk (Agitation Free and Gila) to minimalist ambient electronica (Eno, Moebius & Roedelius and Rolf Trostel) and from relatively well known (Can and Neu!) to obscure (Wolfgang Riechmann and A.R. & Machines.)
