6-panel trifold digipak "special" edition-- this has the same music (including two bonus tracks) as on the jewel case edition (MIR 100704CD), but the digipak packaging offers an enhanced presentation far removed from the cold, meaningless experience jewel cases offer to sociopaths and prison inmates. "For the first time, from the vaults of electronic music guru, Klaus Schulze, comes The Schulze-Schickert Session, a rare and previously unreleased private session featuring echo-guitar pioneer Günter Schickert. Recorded on 26 September 1975 in Klaus Schulze's home studio in Hambuehren, Germany, Schulze can be heard playing an EMS Synthi A, as well as keyboards, and a Syntanorma, while Schickert plays a 12-string Framus with metal strings and also sings on a few tracks. Although Schickert's name is little-known outside of a very select circle of krautrock fans, he was a key member of the Berlin free jazz scene of the 1960s and a pioneer of the echo-guitar. Just prior to the recording of this informal session, Schickert's first LP, Samtvogel, was released on the seminal Brain label. On the two bonus tracks, found only on the CD version, Schickert's playing ebbs, as Schulze takes on the more dominant role."
