The album is well produced and the sound took me back to a time and place I'll never forget. just a great album.

I must admit that I haven't listened to Bob Seger since the 70's but you have motivated me to buy one of his albums

Thanks!

Definitely worth a listen if you've not heard it before... personal favourites: 'It's a bit of a pain' and 'Lauft...Heisst Das Es Lauft Oder Es Kommt Bald..Lauft'

Maybe "Krautrock" (also a track on Faust IV - albeit named with deliberate Teutonic sarcasm following the late great Ian MacDonald's unfortunate coinage in the pages of the NME) deserves its own thread? Or perhaps I'm alone in finding German "prog" music from (say) 1968-1975 much more interesting than its UK or US counterparts/contemporaries? Lauft... is wonderful - as is virtually everything from the first four Faust albums.

I'd strongly recommend Julian Cope's (ironically titled!) Krautrocksampler - see http://https://dangerousminds.net/comments/julian_copes_krautrocksampler_in_pdf_form - as a great starting point for info and recommendations on this era.

I won't pretend to be an expert in that stuff but in college I was exposed to a few big names like Can, Neu, Faust, and so on. I do like that stuff. Matter of fact I didn't really circle back around to U.S. and U.K. prog again until much later. 

Cope is an interesting character. His band Teardrop Explodes made some great albums but his own tastes were much more pop-driven than the stuff he tends to champion. 

If you want to hear a really cool proggy jazzy thing that's just as cool as any of the German bands but available in the cheapo used bins look for a copy of Santana's Caravanserai. I'm not joking. That's a monster album that people often overlook.

Oops - have just discovered that most of the links on that site don't work - and that the only paperback copy of Krautrocksampler currently for sale in the UK (mine is not for sale, thanks!) is on t'internet for a bonkers £538.62 (plus postage!) Ermm

So - here's a link -  http://https://rapidgator.net/file/f553cc9466ecf0c6f64e2342c3d68c1e/Krautrocksampler_(1994)_-_Julian_Cope.pdf.html to the PDF scan I did manage to download. If that doesn't work, I guess interested parties could always PM me and I can email it to them as an attachment. As Mr Cope says he's never going to republish the book, I guess he's not going to lose money over it (plus I buy all his new vinyl when it comes out anyway!) - and I can't believe that any mid-90s paperback can cost more than (say) a new Era Gold V.... Shocked
