In the grand tradition of German psychedelic rock and early electronic music, Ash Ra Tempel's 1971 debut is something of a ground zero. Whatever you think of the krautrock tag, the coterie of artists and innovations associated with the era and movement begins right here. This 50th anniversary edition of a truly seminal album takes us back into the heart of the band and their big ideas, as spelt out in the manifesto from Manuel Gottsching which has been faithfully reproduced in this lavish edition. From the psych freak out of 'Amboss' to the swirling soundscape of 'Traummaschine', this is as landmark as it gets.
