This Japanese pressing uncovers the full sonic potential of this great album. I always thought the recording quality of this album was good, but nothing special. It IS special! Incredible! I was floored when I first spun it. A NM copy is worth every ... See full review

My fave vinyl pressing of this album used to be an original UK. But now I think it is the Japanese vinyl pressing on Stiff. The drums on the intro to “New Rose” pound! That’s not all, of course. Plus there is ZERO surface noise on the beautiful pressing ... See full review

A Krautrock classic. Unlike his other solo albums there is a drummer, but not at all “ruined” by it, just different. There are so many fat analog synth sounds, this alone will make it appealing to many. But there is everything else that one would and ... See full review

Crazy good compilation in LP only no CD pressing in sight yet sorry. So many great LIVE cuts, standouts for ME include X-Ray Spex, 999, and the Stranglers. As I continue my search for more live X-Ray Spex this performance is A+!! I realize others might ... See full review

I have a copy of this that I bought back in the day. But it’s on RED VINYL. Not listed. I wonder if this is way rare or something possibly maybe. Anyone else have one?

Agree. I have plenty of Analogue Production pressings but more Classic Records vinyl. Why? The quality is unmatched. CR built custom tube gear to press the reissues, and I’m pretty sure AP has done the same, and some of the same people are beind the ... See full review

This needs to be released on VINYL! I guess the major labels will release on vinyl only if other format (CD) sales are good enough. So clueless!

Thank you so much for your detailed review. Not only am I going to wait a bit before purchasing this, I no longer feel bad for not waking up at 5am and waiting in a line for four hours in order to purchase it. ;)
Thanks again,

My copy is a first pressing with red labels. On rear cover it says "$4 postpaid from Dischord". Nowadays $4 will just about cover the postage in the USA. But no record ;)

Cool! Discogs labels a piece of music written 103 years ago as "modern" (1914). Awesome. I know. It's just a label. It means nothing. And it's crowdsourced.

I always thought the unofficial end of the Krautrock era was around the time when Damo Suzuki left Can, around 1974-5, and albums released by them after that, as well as those by other bands that I considered my Krautrock faves demonstrated. But not La ... See full review

Thank you for that information! I don't think I'd like this pressing any less if it was indeed a "counterfeit" Russian, or rather, Soviet Led Zeppelin LP. I love the artwork! But as I purchase very few collectors items, it is nice to know this is the ... See full review

posted a comment on Guru Guru - Globetrotter. about 1 year ago
By this time Guru Guru can be classified as Krautrock in name only and because of their reputation as one of the genre's forerunners. This album sounds nothing like the old Guru Guru, instead more like reggae influenced adult contemporary music.
