"'Re: People I Know' is the first of the two long pieces that Klaus played during his Dusseldorf concert in 1977. It's similar to the highly valued piece that KS played around the same time in Brussels' St. Michaels cathedral. 'Avec Arthur': During the lengthy 1979 tour, Klaus played a long solo piece that filled the first half of the concerts as usual. After the intermission, the singer Arthur Brown joined him for the second piece. This is one of those energetic second halves. Arthur could be, and was often, very high-spirited, very good, I dare say even excellent. As here, on the 25th of October 1979 in a youth club of the Belgian town of Liege. During the peaceful part after the break (and his famous roar). Arthur sings partly in French. Merveilleux! My diary reports: 'Small youth club, jam packed. Good concert.' 'Crazy Nietzsche' is loosely based on Klaus' well-known 'Friedrich Nietzsche' title from the X recording session. As on the X tracks, the drumming is by the great rhythm man Harald Grosskopf. First, Klaus recorded Harald's familiar solid pulse, and for the middle part - 'Asketische Ideale' - he was asked to add some floor toms' playing. As usual during that blooming Schulze era, also this track was recorded at the Panne-Paulen studio in Frankfurt. After listening to the music for the first time after many years, Klaus told me it must be a live recording because of the sound of the Korg PS 3300 that he only played in concerts not in a studio. Judge for yourself."
