Over one year in the making this stunning and well documented 8CD box covering the glorious years of the famous BRAIN Records label will allow an unique insight into the progressive and stunning releases that occurred during that era. Germany – the cradle of KRAUT ROCK – was a pulsating center for new sounds and risk taking compositions. This is a marvelous tribute to that golden era with acts such as Guru Guru, Grobschnitt, Klaus Schulze and many more.
