Krautrock ‘supergroup’ Harmonia see their complete works reissued in October as a 5LP vinyl box set.
The band were formed of Michael Rother of Neu! and Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Möbius of Cluster, with Brian Eno joining for sessions in 1976. Of the three studio albums Musik von Harmonia (1974) and Deluxe (1975) were issued in the original era. The third album Tracks and Traces from the ’76 sessions wasn’t released until 1997 under the Harmonia ’76 moniker.
The forthcoming box set includes all three of those long-players, and since this is being issued by Grönland Records, Tracks and Traces uses the expanded track listing from their 2009 CD reissue of that album. Live 1974 is included, along with Documents 1975, a new rarities set featuring live recordings from Hamburg and a couple of studio tracks.
As can be seen from the image above, the box set includes a pop up artwork, a 36-page booklet with previously unreleased photos, the original Harmonia Live Poster and download code for all the albums.
Dieter Moebius who sadly died very recently, had worked with Grönland on this very package. It will be released on 23 October 2015.
