Klaus Schulze is a founding member of Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Tempel, two seminal bands in the evolution of synthesizer-based electronic music. With "Timewind" from 1975 Klaus managed his breakthrough. The album even gained a place in several album charts. As usual, the album is divided into two long pieces (which, of course, in those days had to fit on an LP-side). The first track "Bayreuth Return" is one of his most brilliant pieces. This is one of those pieces, which launched cosmic music. It is built up in a great way, containing beautiful soft sequencer parts, nice calm solos, high-frequent effects and, as expected, the wind. The second track "Wahnfried 1883" starts off with long-stretched effects flows into quiet and long string sounds. A real classic!

Recorded in 1973, "Picture Music" was released two years later, because of legal problems, on the legendary Brain Label. Back in 1975 Schulze already had cult status and he travelled around Europe to do concerts. For this release, the original French cover is used.

Before fading away into obscurity, Klaus Schulze had a few more great albums in him. Dig It is the first of those and a must-have for fans, especially in the re-issued 2005 version…
Complex re-release of the most remarkable and worldwide sought afterSeries The Dark Side Of The Moog by German electronic pioneers Klaus Schulze and Pete Namlook (aka Peter Kuhlmann) in three slip lid boxsets, each with 5 CDs, incl. bonus material and new linernotes. The second box contains Vol. 5 to Vol. 8 and the Bonus CD. Their relationship between Klaus and Pete and the exchange of ideas was unorthodox from the beginning of their co-operation, in that they rarely met personally. The most remarkable contacts they had were outside of their studios, for instance their concert of April 1999 at the Jazz Festival in Hamburg , which was released as an edited version on 'Dark Side Of The Moog, Vol.8'…
