"Organisation" is not a Kraftwerk product. Kraftwerk albums start with "Kraftwerk", "Kraftwerk 2", "Ralf & Florian".

I guess Matt referred to the Organisation LP. It'll be great to hear that trilogy remastered, especially the song "KlingKlang" which for me, is something of a lost masterpiece. -----Original Message-----

Mr. Hütter promised that the 3(!) pre Autobahn albums will be released as remastered cd's after the Catalogue.

Hey, LRC said: I see if you lived in the US you'd be one of
those folks preaching against birth control and
advocating pre-marital abstenence/post-marital
monogamy. Yes, probably the ideal, but HIGHLY unrealistic. I live in South Africa and I'm one of those people. Music is hardly in the same league asmorals and murder. Just to let you know :-)

Or refrain from buying at all? Nobody as a "right" own/have/listen to all
Nice thinking - please tell me where one would get them in South Africa, or other countriesfor that matter. If you look at the likes of EIL, if you got an original - in comparison thatworks out at a lot of money down here in Africa for example. Especially as prices have shotup drastically in recent years. Call it GBP 20 for an LP - that is a few days worth of work in South Africa, or a month's work in Zimbabwe. Oh, not to forget the huge postage costs, andanything over GBP10 value we also pay additional VAT (so 17.5% in the UK and then another 14% over and above) as customs duties. Also, places like here in Africa, they are still in the stage of getting rid of all their LPs and LP players, so the equipment is very hard to get, just to play them - let alone connect them to a PC and convert them. I have a few LPs of Kraftwerk that I got when I was in Holland and England, but no LP player. Also, as LPs are worthless here, they are not worth selling either (though when I go back to Europe, I will make a killing!). I actually reckon that I'm among the only people in Southern Africa who actually have Kraftwerk LPs, and then definitely the rarer ones at that... Then here's a grey area - I have Exceller 8 and Elektro Kinetik. I didn't have the LP playeror means to convert, but I did get a chance to listen to them. I used my bootlegs, thenedited the songs to sound EXACTLY like the LP's edits. Now, am I a bad boy because I used CD bootlegs, or am I in the clear because I own the original LPs? And even if it werebad, who could prove that I didn't just do a straight conversion? I think Kraftwerk should just act like Neu! did in that although they didn't want to releasetheir stuff officially, they did anyway because of all the bootlegs. If KW were to release thefirst 4 pre-Autobahn albums officially, nobody in their right mind would ever buy the bootlegrelease. If you have GBP 15 to spend on an old KW album, do you buy the official one or the bootleg one? Hard choice... :-) I mean, even here in backward Africa, I can go to the nearest CD importer and get the Neu! albums officially, whereas before I had to rely on thebootlegs I got some 9 years ago in Europe. Cheers all,Matt
