Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

05/21/2004: Hallefuckinglujah!!!!

This just received from a Kraftwerk mail list (note that the writer here is Brazilian and English is a second language for him):

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

They will be available in separated peaces 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 implication here is that Kraftwerk, Kraftwerk 2, and Ralf und Florian are available now; I need to cruise some CD websites and see if I can trace them down. Right now, all I need is the first three albums to have a complete Kraftwerk collection (i.e., every album the band has officially released; I doubt that I'll ever manage to collect copies of every Kraftwerk bootleg that's out there), though I may be enticed to spring for The Catalogue anyway, especially since the whole collection is being remastered.
