2012 is the 40th anniversary of the launch of the Brain label, so what better time to release a double album of classic seventies kraut rock, motorik rhythms, acid jams and kosmische sounds, including covers of classic tracks by Can, Neu!, Amon Duul and Kraftwerk?
On sale now, we've crammed in over 90 minutes of great music for you, with all-exclusive tracks Fruits de Mer artists old and new - including The Bevis Frond, Electric Moon, Vibravoid, Language of Light, Dead Sea Apes and Frobisher Neck

The sleevenotes are, or were, by Ulrich Klatte, who wrote the essential guide to original krautrock releases, The 'Cosmic Price Guide'
a few excerpts to frustrate you still further...
