    On every issue of this record it ssyas that side A contains Schwung, 18:30. Side B should be Druck, 17:09. I own a copy of the original German issue (KS80.006), that I digitized today. But the track on side A is 17:09 long and the track on side B 18:30. I listened to a copy I have of a CD issue and also to the LP-rip that a friend made a few years ago and they're all the same: track 1 is named Schwung, but 17:09 long and track 2 named Druck, 18:30 long. Maybe a joke of Klaus? I'm not a big fan of Klaus Schulze, but I know lots of people are. Therefore I don not understand thisisn't mentioned anywhere.

      to my taste Kraftwerk and those do not match the creativity of some Klaus Schulze early before 84 produktions........this one is a great- as some Schulze himself , Robert Schröder and more to dig on IC the early stuff.

        It is good to see others experimenting with the vinyl speed on the Schwing track it does actually work at 33rpm or 45rpm or something in between. Very C Santana esq guitar playing by K Wahnfried at 45rpm, said to be him of course. But of course on his next offering K Wahfriend had dropped his guitar to be keyboardist, so the mystery remains. However, Slow it down a peg and you will be fooled again. This experimental inventive side to German music started disappearing shortly after this sadly

          I do not know exactly in which speed track A "Schwung" must to be played. On the label is a small 45 but I normally play it in 33rpm. In 45 the vocals are in a good tune but the beat is too fast and a bit high. In 33 the beat is on a good tempo but the vocals are in a low tune. I personally play it in 33 and pitch it up on +4%. By the way it is an ingenious track in good wahnfried manners!
