A special shout out to Klaus Schulze's track "Sequenzer 70-07" from Kontinuum. One of the best EM pieces I've ever heard!




Nice to read I'm not the only one who's fond of this late Schulze masterpiece...


Count me in. I love Kontinuum.

Must get round to compiling a list. Here's a change: it won't contain Soil Festivities.

WO-HOOO!!!! Nice!

I have to admit though that I like the other two tracks on the album rather less than the opener. Still quality Schulze, of course, and always worth a listen...

I'm with you there. Much as I love tracks two and three, the opening track is minimalist perfection! It sounds so much more "structured" than Schulze's usual more improvised approach, and yet it still has that beautiful, floating quality.

So when did the "golden era" end, anyway? Mid 80s?

I always thought the 'golden era' covered the period from 1970 until 1980 but I agree that the most interesting and influential music was made between 1970 and 1985...

Well, I don't agree. For some reason it's called the golden era, but I'm not really a sucker for the 70s, with some exceptions.

I have always thought that the golden age is when the foundations are laid and new things are found. Just before it turns mainstream and is regarded as the normal way to do it. Typically the artists manage to do their career defining work then.. Like the golden age for rock'n'roll was in the days of Eddie Cochran, B. Holly, Young Elvis, Bill Haley etc, and not in the days of Shaking Stevens or Baseballs Smile....with all respect also to the latter ones of course. So the genre lives and possibly thrives, but is no longer cutting edge, but restricted by the sound of the pioneers.
