Faust 1971-1974 / limited edition box set on CD and vinyl

“The Holy Grail of Krautrock”

Faust 1971-1974 is a forthcoming box set, available on CD and vinyl, that collects the music of Faust, the band who are strongly associated with Krautrock movement in West German.

The 8CD box set (also available as a 7LP vinyl collection) contains the four albums from the original early Seventies incarnation of the band. That is, Faust (1971), So Far (1972) , The Faust Tapes (1973) and Faust IV (1973). It also includes Punkt, a 1974 album that has never been released (recorded at Giorgio Moroder’s Musicland Studios) and unissued studio tracks collected on Momentaufnahme I and Momentaufnahme II. The final disc in the CD version contains material from two seven-inch singles which feature in the vinyl box set.

The first seven inch features ‘Lieber Herr Deutschland’, the demo recording the band sent to Polydor in 1971 (eventually issued as the B-side to their single ‘Baby’) while the second is ‘So Far’, the very first Faust single on Polydor (originally issued in 1972).

Faust 1971-1974 is very limited with just 2,000 copies available as the 7LP+2×7″ set and an even lower number (1,000) on CD.
