Harmonia’s pioneering electronic albums will be compiled in a deluxe box set by Grönland Records later this year.
The five-vinyl retrospective, which was in the works before Dieter Moebius sadly died earlier this week, will include every album recorded by Moebius, Hans-Joachim Roedelius of Cluster and Michael Rother of Neu! in their white-hot run from 1973-76.
Along with Musik von Harmonia, Deluxe, Harmonia And Eno ’76’s Tracks And Traces and Live 1974, fans will get Documents 1975, which includes previously unreleased recordings from Hamburg gigs and two studio tracks. Other goodies include a 36-page booklet, a live poster, pop-up artwork (!) and a download code for all the music.
“We at Grönland have had the pleasure to have worked very closely with Dieter in recent years and we will miss him dearly,” said the label. “We knew about his illness and despite this, he continued working closely on the boxset with us. He and Grönland always wanted the box to be a statement of this incredible music and of life itself.” The box set is out on October 23. [via RA]
