Kraftwerk to release box set

Man, can’t wait for this one:

Kraftwerk “12345678 – The Catalogue” will be available on September…

In a recent interview to italian newspaper La Stampa, Ralf Hutter confirmed release of Kraftwerk remastered albums (12345678 – The Catalogue) on September, 2004.

They will be available in separated pieces and as a box, with the original artwork when they were first published.

The 8 albums (Autobahn, Radioactivity, Trans Europe Express, The Man Machine, Computer World, Electric Cafe, The Mix and Tour de France Soundtracks) will be published in CD and vinyl, and later in Super Audio CD, in both English and German versions.

There will not be unreleased material, only the official material with some known bonus tracks. The only modification will occurs with the album Electric Cafe, renamed as TECHNOPOP, with the original graphics and design from original project.

The first three records (Kraftwerk, Kraftwerk 2 and Ralf & Florian) will be released too, after the Catalogue, but as a separated package. The first three records weren’t released officialy on CD format until today, and only available in bootlegs with material copied from the vinyl versions were available.

The concerts of Kraftwerk Tour 2004 are being registered to production of a DVD, to be released in the beginning of next year…

  1. It would be a dream come true–but I’ll believe it when I see it. …and I don’t see it.

  2. Dear Carl,
    If you have a copy of the 12345678 box set for sale – how much are you asking for it?
    Best wishes,

  3. Dear Carl,
    Do you still have the 12345678 box set for sale? If so, how much are you asking for it?
    Best wishes,

  4. No, Carl isn’t wrong – it has been released, but only in a ltd promo edn of 1,000 copies and it usually sells for at least UKú150 unwards every time I have seen one for sale. Let’s hope the band actually relased this box set officially and stop this promo set from being so rare.

  5. Basically this is a hugely limited “Notebook” box set packaged in a lavish Silver case and including the double DVD edition released this week, the double CD of the “Minimum-Maximum” live set in exclusive 6-page digipaks, with a wide-format and, to top it all off, an extremely special, exclusive 88-page hardback book featuring a host of Kraftwerk live photos (including some previously unseen images), stage artwork and technical tour data. Surely the ultimate Kraftwerk item – we have been told that these have been manufactured on a strictly to-order basis and will be in short supply so make sure if you want one of these…… get clicking. Magic.
