For reals this time?

Kraftwerk

12345678 THE CATALOGUE

FOUR DECADES OF MASTERWORKS

CD, CD BOX SET, VINYL & DOWNLOAD

Mute: 5th OCTOBER 2009

KRAFTWERK: Electro Pioneers, living legends and globally revered masters of electronic sound, celebrate the 35th anniversary of their landmark 1974 hit ‘Autobahn’ by releasing digitally remastered versions of eight astounding albums on 5th October 2009. Rolling back musical barriers with every forward-thinking phase of their career, Dusseldorf's Zen masters of electronic minimalism laid the foundations for four decades of computerised pop and dance music. By chain reaction and mutation, they have influenced generations of artists in all genres, mapping musical futures yet to come. From Bowie to Daft Punk, Aphex Twin to Portishead, Dr Dre to LCD Soundsystem, and almost everyone in between, the mark of Kraftwerk is endless, endless.

In 2009 Kraftwerk have upgraded their Kling Klang masters with the latest studio technology and these eight magnificent recordings still sound like nothing else in the history of music. Kraftwerk are unique, pristine, profound and beautiful. Decades may pass, but their streamlined synthetic symphonies stand outside time, as fresh as tomorrow, transcendent and sublime.

12345678 The Catalogue will be released across the following formats;

8 x individual CDs presented in special slipcases featuring newly expanded artwork, including many previously unseen images all of which have been reproduced to the highest technical standards.

CD Box Set containing 8 x CDs in ‘mini-vinyl’ card wallet packaging, plus individual large format booklets.

8 x individual heavyweight vinyl LPs with large format booklets.

Digital downloads.


_______________________________________

Funny how this is coming out a month after The Beatles remasters. Unfortunately, I doubt that there will also be a Kraftwerk version of Rock Band.


And even more unfortunately, their three best albums (which held up better over time than any of these) won't be included.

LAGWAFIS:  "The re-issue is now scheduled for the second half of November, exact release date is tbc.The artwork has changed, some of the packaging is similar to the original release.

There will be 3 formats released:

Ltd Collectors Edition - 12 disc pill pack + 2 additional cd's of previously unreleased material in new artwork.

Deluxe pack - 3 cd's in one blister pill pack. The original album plus the 2 additional cd's of unreleased material.

Standard jewel case of the original album in new artwork. The old design will no longer be manufactured.

Additional cd track listings information to follow. Pack shots of new design available nearer release date."

The delay must have something to do with the drug company manufacturing these.

It is. The original UK limited edition was on 12x3" CD with one song per CD.

In other Krautrock-related news, the Harmonia/Brian Eno disc will be reissued on Bronland
 on 10/6 with three additional tracks.

Beck has this new thing he's doing called the "Record Club Series" where he &
some of his friends get together for one day and record a classic album. The
first one is "The Velvet Underground & Nico".

Next one scheduled is Sonic Youth's "EVOL".

there's a multiple-disc set on the Stone Roses debut
at first I was kind of jazzed at the idea but I DLed the first disc, which is a remastered version of the album, and realized that was sufficient
but there's demos and b-sides and singles on the other discs, and that has some value

I'm streaming the demo's disk right now and it's sounds like i'll have to upgrade my 10th anniversary edition of this one.  and talk about some sweet limited edition packaging....
