Mine are ... well wait. Lets make it a quiz :party: Try if you can guess the albums. I just take 3 quotes from the albums:

1. "free for improvisation based on title-theme (for musicians only)"
2. "Music as it should be"
3. "This is my first and last live album, a survey"

Hint: Same artist.

Did I kill this thread with my little quiz? Or is it just too difficult :razz:
OK a few more hits.
Album number 1 is actually mentioned two times in this thread.
Album number 2 is normal considered the master work, and both Steve Roach and Mark Shreeve (Redshift) is very fond of this album. I'm surprised no one has this on their top 3 list.
Album number 3 is - as the quote tells - a live album. But contrary to the quote it turned out not to be the last. Several has followed since then. The first is still the best though. Particular the 50 minutes recording from a minimalist festival in Berlin is a classic :tu:

They are all Klaus Schulze albums, i remember that third quote from the 1980 Live. It's a really great album... Amazing work for a one guy on stage (with some help from the great drummer Harald Grosskopf on some tracks).

^ Bravo :yay: Yes number 3 is Klaus Schulze ...Live... from 1980. It has grown on me so I regard it as one of my all time faves. Being alone on stage and not being a virtuous (like some other synth/keyboards playes of the era) meant the music has a much slower pace, less things going on. This makes is more relaxing and ambient but also more hypnotic. The 51 minutes Sense from October 1976 (and thus first released 4 years later) with Grosskopf on drums is a perfect example of that. But the 3 other long tracks from the autumn 1979 Dune tour also features a lot of great improvisations and a lot of unorthodox CS80 playing :banana:
