I listened to a 3rd Pressing of this LP a few days ago.
The Vinyl looked Mint, but the seller told me that it sounds pretty bad,
so we took a listen. Side A had audible crackling, but the sound was insane
(played on a cheap system !). However, Side B was almost unlistenable due to
loud pops and overall background noise. Does it have something to do with the pressing,
or was there just weird dirt in the grooves? Would be nice if someone who owns a 3rd Pressing
could clarify that :)
By the way, I tip my hat to the seller for being honest.

My copy has an etching of EYA-1A & EYA-1B for each respective side. Is this the same for others? Side B is pretty clicky & poppy and side A ain't too bad but thats probably cause the louder music masks it more. From what I managed to find out online this is a Japanese pressing of the worst kind. Fold-out sleeve is superb but as for how it sounds I believe they just copied off an OG vinyl that wasn't clean to begin with (rather than master tapes) hence all the surface noise was transferred right across too. It's not terrible, but it's not great. Plz correct me if I'm wrong about this.

I have a copy of this one and I must say that the pressing is bad. Side A sounds good but the B side has a distortion in the right chanel on the whole side. Since the song is a "quite" one the distortion really makes the song almost impossible to enjoy.

Is this an official release? There seems to be a lot of bootlegs on the market.

Who can provide me with some details about 2014 reissue o ASH RA TEMPEL DEBUT ALBUM on vinyl? The label is not specified (Other OMM56013 : what does this mean?) It seems that this reissue is endowed with a perfect reproduction of the original folding cover andl artwork, but what's about the quality of pressing ? Thx to anybody will be so kind to give me some info - Ricky

Nothing short of an essential album of Krautrock that must be in your collection. I won't forget when I bought the 1997 LP reissue on Spalax. In hindsight, it was a lousy reissue. It did not feature the cool fold-out gimmick cover, instead it included a CD booklet. I really wished Spalax showed a little more care in their reissues. At that time I still didn't have the Internet, so I was basically confined with what I could find at various record stores near where I lived, or mail order catalogs. And this reissue was what I could find at the time at a nearby record store. Regardless of the shortcomings of that reissue, this album just simply blew me away. This lineup included Manuel Göttsching, Hartmut Enke, and Klaus Schulze. At this time in his career, Schulze was primarily a drummer, so don't expect any synth or organ work. What you get is just amazing spacy guitar-dominated Krautock, and they seem to be rather contrasting to each other. "Amboss" doesn't take very long before it gets into an aggressive rocking jam. The band just doesn't let up for nothing! Then there's "Traummaschine", which is largely a calm, proto-dark ambient piece with a dark, eerie, sinister vibe, although it picks up steam with Manuel's guitar playing and it actually stars rocking, but then it calms down.

I have since bought an Ohr copy, the second pressing with the code number starting with OMM 55 (rather than OMM 5), at least it has the original gimmick cover and stuff I wished the reissue had.

An essential classic, as far as I'm concerned

Personally I think this very well may be the best sounding version available, excluding maybe the very first pressing. Production wasn't the best in the first place & it is very difficult to find any pressing that isn't a bootleg or that was mastered from a vinyl source. The QUAD mastering brings out some detail I don't hear on the two channel stereo mix. Nice dynamics, too. This pressing often goes for much, much less than the stereo copies with the gimmick fold-open cover so don't hesitate or sleep on it if you find a nice one!
