Kraftwerk Boxed Set in Oct.
- Words: Thomas Rees
To celebrate the 35th anniversary of their 1974 hit "Autobahn," electronic pioneers Kraftwerk are releasing an eight-CD, super-deluxe boxed set, featuring remastered versions of eight astounding albums. Titled 12345678 The Catalogue, the set will also feature booklets containing previously unseen photos and artworks that have been reproduced to the highest technical standards. Though die-hard fans will note that the first three brilliant albums by the Teutonic geniuses aren't contained in the boxed set, these naysayers will undoubtedly buy the collection anyway—who can resist updated recordings of the greatest electronic group in the world?
12345678 The Catalogue will be released by Astralwerks on October 6.
