Focus: Klaus Schulze’s seventies

Klaus Schulze (b. 1947) is one of the greatest musicians of modern times. He has released over 100 (!) albums over the past 40 years and has been involved in groups like Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Tempel.
Here are the original releases made during the seventies. During 1990-2000’s, Schulze released several boxes and collections of previously unreleased material from this period. All highly recommended.




Klaus Schulze was also active under the pseudonym Richard Wahnfried, and released seven albums between 1979-1997. The music is a bit more accessible perhaps to the untrained listener. “Time Actor” is from 1979 and thus fits here.
