Vinyl LP / 2016 reissue/repress - Blue vinyl

1974-Germany

Release notes :

"Recorded in 1973 during a series of acid-fuelled all-night jam parties held at producer Dieter Dierks studio near Cologne, Cosmic Jokers was the work of a veritable krautrock supergroup that included Dierks himself, Manuel Göttsching (Ash Ra Tempel), Klaus Schulze (Tangerine Dream), Jürgen Dollase and Harald Grosskopf (both of Wallenstein). This free-form freak out -- consisting of two epic tracks, the 22 min "Galactic Joke" and the 19 min "Cosmic Joy"--was first of five albums by the group to be released on Rolf-Ulrich Kaisers Cosmic Couriers label in the coming months. A first rate slab of space rock up there with other classics of the genre." -Klimt

Vinyl LP / 2018 reissue - limited numbered edition of 500 / Transparent Blue vinyl

1970-Germany

Release notes :

"Brilliant debut by the godfathers of ambient and world music, Popol Vuh! Originally released in 1970, Affenstunde (literally Ape Hour) was the first album by a German band to employ the extraordinary sounds of the Moog synthesizer. Blending electronics with traditional percussion instruments, Popol Vuh - led by the legendary multi-instrumentalist Florian Fricke - created a tribal and dreamlike blanket of sound that would go on to influence many-a-band on the krautrock scene and beyond. Popol Vuh would also soon famously begin to collaborate with Werner Herzog, composing many of the soundtracks to his films from this period (including Aguirre: The Wrath of God, Nosferatu and Fitzcarraldo). Numbered edition of 500 copies." -Klimt.

Vinyl LP / Reissue

1970-USA

Release notes :

Randy Holden is an American guitarist best known for his involvement with the West Coast blues-rock group Blue Cheer on their third album 'New! Improved!' (1969). Holden obtained a sponsorship deal with Sunn amplifiers. Through this, he received his legendary sixteen 200 Watt amplifiers. His new band was dubbed Randy Holden - Population II which was a reference to the fact there were only two members in the band as well as being an astronomical term 'Population II' that defines a special kind of Star Group cluster type, having heavy metal in its composition. An appropriate description of the original style of the music attributed to Holden's new band. The band recorded its only album, 'Population II' in 1970. The album has become a much-sought-after collectors' item over the years.
