NOT IN STOCK
Two compilations from various Sky label releases, reissued again (previously on Gyroscope in the US). As some of those albums aren't readily available these days (Sowiesoso, Rastakraut Pasta, etc.), these perhaps make more sense than they used to. But still, confusingly presented and not as necessary as they could/should be. "A prime compilation from the Eno/Cluster family, Begegnungen features solo, duo, and trio recordings circa 1976-1984. These include pieces from various configurations of Eno, Moebius, Roedelius, Plank, and percussionist Mani Neumeier. The compositions are strong and inventive, and the music, an eclectic mix of progressive Krautrock and artistic, ambient electronica, is the best of its genre. All the material is synth-based and mostly upbeat, even bubbly at times."
