Kraftwerk ‎– Electric Cafe

Genre:

Year:
Notes:
Kraftwerk's ninth studio album, released in November 1986, five-and-a-half years after the previous album, 'Computerwelt'. 'Electric Cafe' was delayed for several reasons, including Ralf Hütter's cycling accident in 1982. The album was originally to include the 1983 single 'Tour De France'.

As with all of Kraftwerk's studio albums from 'Trans Europa Express' (1977) onwards, 'Electric Café' was issued in English- and German-language versions. A Spanish-language version – the 'Edición Española' – was also available for a limited time. Unlike earlier albums, all versions of 'Electric Café' feature lyrics in several languages.

In 2009 a remastered version was released under one of the album's working titles, 'Techno Pop'. On this version the original 8:03 album version of 'The Telephone Call' was replaced by two tracks: the 7" mix of 'The Telephone Call' (3:50) and the remix 'House Phone' (4:57). Both had originally appeared on the single release of 'Der Telefon Anruf'.

Although Wolfgang Flür was a member of Kraftwerk until 1987, he did not perform on the album.

A few memories: Back in 1982 I was involved in the production (lithography and printing) of the cover for Kraftwerk's planned album "Techno Pop" (as also for the albums "Die Mensch-Maschine" and "Computerwelt" before). I still keep 2 proof prints of the original cover for „Techno Pop“ on 70 x 100 cm sheets in my archive. The other proofs have probably been destroyed.

I remember that there were lengthy discussions about the red tone in the print. The Kraftwerk group - almost always four of them showed up for the print acceptance - gave me the torn flap of a Marlboro cigarette pack as a colour sample with the words "The colour tone should look like this [the red of Marlboro]".

No information was given on the proof prints about the titles of the songs, and other text information was also missing. Probably the titles and/or the order had not yet been decided. However, the proofs show the front and back of the cover and also the inner sleeve (front and back) with pictures.

When I asked Ralf Hütter - who was the main spokesperson for the group - what the record label should look like, he handed me a titanium gear wheel from a racing bike: "This is what the label should look like". I had to quickly make a negative contact copy of the gear, because he still needed it, as he said. That was shortly before he had the accident with his racing bike, whereupon work on the cover stopped or was stopped completely.

Two of my colleagues in the reproduction company at that time were Jürgen Engler (Male, Krupps) and Wolf-Dieter Lauenroth (see their entries on Discogs). Both were apprentices, I was the head of production planning. Those were exciting years, I think back on them very fondly.

As with most Kraftwerk releases on Kling Klang, this one sounds excellent. The original barcode has been covered up for this release, and the LP is dated 2009. I'm playing this on a Stanton 680 HP and every track has the punch of a high quality 12" single. You'll be happy with this edition for sure

An odd version to be avoided. Non gatefold with a glossy outer sleeve featuring a low-res reprint of the german pressing graphics (which include the original Electric Cafe Tracklisting, in spite of being ripped from the 2009 remaster. Der Telefon Anruf and House Phone are actually on this release. The insert is a single piece of card featuring two of the wireframe graphics, one on each side. My pressing does seem to be ripped from the 2009 CD or vinyl remaster.

So what does make this version German? Apart from printed titles? Does anyone know if there is difference in language sung or just in the titles?

Just received my copy from Bull Moose Music in Maine. Nice copy. Clean, flat, low noise. Great punch. Sounds great!

My first and favourite album. I know others are more popular and I know this is not as good as Computer World but it takes me back to being 16 years and putting it on at home or at friends. They all liked U2 and hated it. That made it even better,
