Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Eno / Moebius / Roedelius / Plank - Begegnungen Begegnungen
Electronic Used - LP 090 Sky
Laminated Cover DMM German Original. Vinyl Appears Glossy. Slight Nick On Top Seam. “A Prime Compilation From The Eno/Cluster Family, Begegnungen Features Previously Released Solo, Duo, And Trio Recordings Circa 1976-1984. These Include Pieces From Various Configurations Of Eno, Moebius, Roedelius, Plank, And Percussionist Mani Neumeier. The Compositions Are Strong And Inventive, And The Music, An Eclectic Mix Of Progressive Krautrock And Artistic, Ambient Electronica, Is The Best Of Its Genre. All The Material Is Synth-Based And Mostly Upbeat, Even Bubbly At Times, As In The Jumpy "Nervos" (From Moebius' Tonspuren) And The Quirky, Rhythmic "Pitch Control" (From The Exquisite Zero Set), Which Features Electronic Horse Whinnies. "Johanneslust" And "The Belldog" Are Highlights. From Roedelius' Durch Die Wuste, The Vibrant, Reflective "Johanneslust" Stands Out With Its Acoustic Guitar-Like Synthesizers And Ambient Landscape; And "The Belldog" (After The Heat), The Only Vocal Track On The Album, Benefits From Industrial Overtones, Musically And Lyrically. Based In A Warm, Synthetic Rhythm, "The Belldog" Features Beautifully Mood Evoking Eno Vocals. And The Song Takes On An Air Of Importance And Sophistication With Its Epic Quality. Honorable Mention Goes To Moebius And Plank's "Two Oldtimers," A Bright, Almost Playful Composition From Rastakraut Pasta. The Album's Cover Photograph By Michael Weisser Is One Of Several Photos He Created For Sky Records, Including Begegnungen II And Old Land. Begegnungen II Is An Excellent Follow-Up, Released The Same Year As The First. It Contains Different Songs From Begegnungen But Draws From Most Of The Same Album Sources. And Old Land, Strictly An Eno/Cluster Compilation, Contains All Of The Eno/Cluster Tracks Found On The Begegnungen Pair, Plus More.” – David Ross Smith, AMG... more details
 
Eno / Moebius / Roedelius / Plank - Begegnungen II Begegnungen II
Electronic Used - LP 095 Sky
Laminated Cover German Original. Vinyl Appears Glossy. Slight Bumps On Bottom Corners Of Cover. “More Offerings From Eno, Moebius, Roedelius, Plank, And Neumeier, Begegnungen II Is The Equivalent Of Its Predecessor. The Tracks On The Compilation (Recorded In 1976-1983) Are An Appealing Mix Of Artsy Electronic Ambiance And Progressive Krautrock. Eno's Mechanical "Broken Head" Stands Out As The Only Vocal Track -- A Dark, Almost Oppressive Industrial Tune Not Unlike Early Gary Numan, But Warmer. "Speed Display," Originally Recorded For Moebius, Plank, And Neumeier's Zero Set, Is A Fantastic Showcase For Mani Neumeier's Speed And Endurance As A Percussionist. He Generates An Incredible Rhythmic Groove, Supplemented By Sparkling Synthesizer Flourishes. Roedelius Shines With Two Contributions To The Set. His Atmospheric "Mr. Livingstone," An Asian-Influenced Synth Piece With Complementary Percussion, Is Pleasantly Reminiscent Of The Opening To "The Colony Of Slippermen" From Genesis' Lamb Lies Down On Broadway. Along Similar Lines, The Warm Colors Of "Langer Atem" May Have Been Inspired By Eno's More Melodic Ambient Work, Perhaps Music For Films. Elsewhere On The Record, Moebius And Plank's "Conditionierer" Scores As Upbeat, Quirky Synth Rock. The Well-Crafted Recordings On The Begegnungen Albums Are Easily Some Of The Most Interesting Compositions By All Involved; The Albums Therefore Serve As Excellent Introductions To The Musicians' Work.” – David Ross Smith... more details
