Kraftwerk - "Kraftwerk I" [1970]

Artist: Kraftwerk
Title: Kraftwerk
Genre: Krautrock
Country: Germany
Release date: 1970

While Kraftwerkare best known for their electronic works of the 80s & late 70s, let't not forget that they started their musical career from playing psychedelic prog-rock in the vein of Faust and Can. Their debut self-titled album, released in 1970, is a prime example of this. Sadly it's a very overlooked release compared to their later works, and it even wasn't officially re-released on CD (at least according to Discogs, there was only one unofficial CD reissue). I understand there aren't many krautrock fans nowadays, but I still think this album deserves more recognition.
