Kraftwerk Announce Plans to Reissue Entire Catalog

From Pitchfork Media:

“Kraftwerk have just revealed to the Toronto-based music magazine Now that they’re in the midst of an ambitious project to reissue their entire catalog– including their first three albums, which have been available only via UK import for years. Speaking by telephone from the band’s Kling Klang studios in Düsseldorf, Germany, Kraftwerk co-founder Ralf Hütter told the publication, “We’ve been digitally transferring all of Kraftwerk’s original recordings and sound sources from our badly degrading master tapes while our engineers, Fritz [Hilpert] and Henning [Schmitz], have been working in parallel to remaster our early albums for re-release.”
