Originally issued as a 2 x c90 cassette set (Auricle AMC 028) © 1988 edition, ca. 200 copies

"Note: It was necessary to change the running order of the cassette sides to fit the whole opus on 2 CD's, with disc 1 containing sides A & D, and disc 2 containing sides B & C. Musically it's all the same, apart from some careful remastering, corrected editing and additional track indexing, amounting to a much better document than the original ever was!...
Con-Hertz product was issued under licence from Wolfgang Hertz, with permission and free use given to Auricle for "all the good promotion you've given my music" by Conrad Schnitzler. This issue is published with the greatest respect to both musicians."

Comes as two silver discs in a slim 2xCD case (with a 2 printed page insert and tray inlay)

This page represents the authentic remastered issue from the original tapes! This is Conrad Schnitzler and Wolfgang Hertz at around the same as the "Micon In Italia" album, using unique early digital electronics and sampling along with analogue equipment, covering a wide range of styles. Samples can be listened to via Con-Hertz Bandcamp page (which is the same master).
Any other CDr editions that differ from the product described here are not the genuine article!
