Ash Ra Tempel - Le Berceau de Cristal. 1975 Germany


Ash Ra Tempel - Le Berceau de Cristal. 1994 Spalax. 1975 archival recording

Release details: The one and only release of this is the extinct 1994 CD, which has now become quite the collectable item. I bought mine immediately upon release. Though I've seen copies for a reasonable amount in auction. Patience will likely pay off here. The liner notes are in French, which is disappointing.

Notes: 1975's Le Berceau de Cristal (not released until 1994) is a soundtrack to a French film, which displays the logical development between the Ash Ra Tempel and Ashra albums. Manuel Gottsching lined up with friend, and former Agitation Free guitarist, Lutz Ulbricht to continue his exploration of  cyclical guitar sounds and electronics. It's truly a successor to "Inventions for Electric Guitar", with sound on sound electric guitar at its core, with some sequencers, Farfisa, and other synthesizers added on top.
