This two-CD set contains the complete recording of a performance by Klaus Schulze at Brussels University on April 16, 1977, as well as a track exclusive to this CD edition of the release, "There Shall Be Sung Another Golden Age," recorded in concert in Arnheim, Holland on October 28, 1979. In this excerpt from his liner notes, Klaus Dieter Mueller recalls the process of releasing this singular artifact: "During his career Klaus has played 380 concerts, 119 as soloist and the others with guests or in a group such as Psy Free, Ash Ra Tempel, Tangerine Dream, or Stomu Yamashta's Go. Some of these concerts were recorded and some of it was already released. The very first was the double LP album ...Live... in 1980, and KS promised then, as it was printed on the cover: 'This is my first and last live album.' Meanwhile... we have a few more concert recordings of Klaus Schulze released, for posterity... and for enjoyment of the present listeners. These historic concert recordings from the concert tour in 1977 were partly available before on an illegal bootleg. We had the obvious idea to make this album (and maybe others) finally 'official'... The three titles played in 1977 during the Brussels University concert are too long for one CD and not enough to fill two CDs... and therefore, I added a long bonus track from my archives to fill up the second CD. This track is the first that Klaus played at the concert in the Dutch town of Arnhem in 1979. We recorded it by placing Klaus' stereo cassette recorder on stage, in the midst of Klaus' two monitor speakers, which was the way we recorded many of this tour's concerts. Mainly for Klaus Schulze, who likes to listen to it with headphones, back in the hotel, during the night, in bed. After such a concert he cannot just lay down and sleep, as if nothing had happened."
