Documentary which looks at how a radical generation of musicians created a new German musical identity out of the cultural ruins of war.
Between 1968 and 1977 bands like Neu!, Can, Faust and Kraftwerk would look beyond western rock and roll to create some of the most original and uncompromising music ever heard. They shared one common goal - a forward-looking desire to transcend Germany's gruesome past - but that didn't stop the music press in war-obsessed Britain from calling them Krautrock.
Excellent five CD set containing albums from a quintet of Krautrock's finest bands packaged in mini LP sleeves and housed in a slipcase. Includes Parzival's Legend, L.A. Dusseldorf's Viva and self-titled albums from Message, Asterix and Gift…
This is an extraordinary compilation of the progressive and psychedelic music sub-genre known as "Krautrock". On six CDs, consisting of nearly 480 minutes of music, you will find an overview of some of the most creative styles of music from the "Deutschrock"-phase. This is the first time that such a huge spectrum of bands and artists of so many varying styles within this genre is found on one compilation. Accordingly, it is an absolute highlight for veteran fans as well as newcomers. Embryo, Scorpions, Grobschnitt, Guru Guru, Eloy, Kraan, Novalis and many more.
5th in a successful series of 6CD Boxed Sets concentrating on Progressive/Rock/ Electronic bands and artists from the 60’s & 70’s German Krautrock era! Released in 2012, this is an amazing collection of Krautrock archive recordings, and a great way to start to build a nicely varied collection of tracks by known and perhaps previously unknown artists and bands that you might have heard of but never taken the time to investigate. The unique collection covers German Rock from the seventies from various Krautrock groups, and within you will find Electronic Music, Hard Rock, Jazz, Psychedelic and Progressive-Rock, simply everything that was listed under the “Krautrock” term…
The expected diversity of these compilations is given again. No matter if it is the Petards, who founded the fundaments for Krautrock already in the late 60's, or Straight Shooter with their early 80's hard-rock, each kind of music is present. Electronic music with Neu!, Cluster, Tangerine Dream, Faust and Michael Rother turns to pure psychedelic like Guru Guru, Brainticket or Nine Days Wonder. Prog fans will love Nektar, Anyone's Daughter and Parzival, while rockers will enjoy Murphy Blend, Eloy, Harlis and many others. To say it clear - there is something for everyone!
6 CD-Set, the third volume of outstanding Krautrock that will surely do your head in… again! Krautrock was (and still is) a musical phenomenon that sprouted in Germany in the late '60s and early '70s.

The World Of Krautrock Vol.1 (1997). Once upon a time, all fairy tales start. And gave the recollections of the time as it still Kreidler motorbikes and wild music also 'Krautrock' called. The artists on the CD are represented, also at that time for good tones there provided Birth Control from Berlin and Guru Guru from the Heidelberg area. They have become legends for us at least. On the CD are found beside the already mentioned groups also Witthüser & Westrup with wonderful ballads..
