    I have a strange version of Autobahn that I suspect is a fake, could anyone confirm? It's got the 6305 231 D cat#, printed in Germany, but the vinyl is translucent red and has no matrix number that I can see. I can't find it among the listed versions, any chance it's real?

      My copy has a texture cover, full blue philips labels run out 10 AA6305231 1Y 320 1a a b pmdc. I think is a copy pressed in early 90's but a can't find anything like this. Is it a fake copy?. Both labels with made in germany on it.

        Can't find my version. My copy had blue sticker on front, distribution code "D", matrix (side 1): 10 AA6305231 1Y 320 BW 3A. Side 2 is: 10 AA6305231 2Y//2 320 2 DE. What press is it?

          Can anyone tell me if the original print had the blue sticker or not? Here I see two front covers one without and one with: what is the original?

            Trying to locate a version that appears similar to this version: https://www.discogs.com/Kraftwerk-Autobahn/release/4062704 in the database.
            The one I am looking reads like this:
            Matrix / Runout (SIDE A:): MASTERDISK G.K. VEL-2003-A-CT2 1T
            Matrix / Runout (SIDE B:): MASTERDISK G.K. VEL-2003-B-CT1 1T
            "Autobahn" is banded, however it does NOT have the "Promotion Copy. Not For Sale" printed on the label.

              Found my copy in a free left over flea market bin that was given to my father (can you believe that?) 1974 vel-2003 pressing with a split sleeve. As old as it is and how badly it was treated it sounds pretty clean. Amazing grooves that bridge the gap of the Kraftwerk 'psychedelic jam out' sound with the new wave electronic cleanliness. Many great jams on this copy that aren't just the generic AutoBahn track that I was familiar with. Great excursions!

                I have the Autobahn LP 6305 231 D, 1974, Philips. The cover is without the blue "Autobahn" sign in the upper left corner. The record itself is in dark blue, transparent Vinyl but there is no signature on the Runout/Matrix, can anybody tell me something about that record?

                  Trying to figure out which version I have. Cat no VEL-2003 with runoff stamp R-11434A-1 on A and same number with B on B side. Googling returned nothing for this pressing. Help!

                    One of my first records. This electropop tour-de-force sounded very odd at the days, maybe pressaging what was about to be, because it is easier to understand this non-stop groove today than when it came out... History was being made back then and although today it is so familiar, side A still sounds very modern and fresh! Side B is very dated but nonetheless fun to hear.

                      I remember watching a 1970's Martial Arts film years ago, that featured music from this album. Also, featured were Tangerine Dream and Neu! The man was called the "One-armed boxer". A friend owned it on vhs tape. The music was put to good use from what I remember. Does anyone recall the title? It was the 1975 classic, "Master Of The Flying Guillotine"! Rated this record a 4/5 only, because of the low hiss throughout the album. Check out this album and the film to hear the music for yourself!
