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.

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
