Günter Schickert- Samtvogel (1974)

Fantastic rare krautrock! Samtvogel is a dark 1974 solo affair from echo-guitar pioneer and GAM founder Günter Schickert. Lovingly remastered & re-released in 2010 in an edition of 500 by Wah Wah Records Supersonic Sounds. Highly recommended for fans of Ash Ra Tempel, Klaus Schulze, Achim Reichel, et al.

"When I was recording Samtvogel in 1974 I had only 2 taperecorders. I played one track and while listening I added the second one. And so on. Four times. When I mixed all together I borrowed a 3rd taperecorder. And still adedd the last track to the master....If I made a mistake in 1 track I had to repeat it from the beginning. And if while mixing it I was not fast enough in changing the tape I had to start again. So it took more than 3 months to get ready."

3 tape recorders? Interesting, i once did the same thing back in '97.
Although my 'music' isn't anything near this, more like soundscapes actually.
I'll be posting that stuff any time soon. I'm in the process of digitizing and cutting into pieces...
