Grönland present the COMPLETE HARMONIA BOX SET‏

July 23, 2015

 

 

On Monday 20th July, we received the tragic news that Dieter Moebius had passed away.
We at Grönland have had the pleasure to have worked very closely with Dieter in recent years and we will miss him dearly. We knew about his illness and despite this, he continued working on the box set with us. We always wanted the box to be a statement of this incredible music and of life itself.
Dieter was not only an extraordinary musician but also a wonderful person with a very special sense of humor.
Our thoughts go out to his family. –

Few bands match the pastoral beauty and majesty of Harmonia, the visionary German band that existed from 1973 to 1976. The ‘Krautrock’ supergroup, brought together Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius of Cluster, and Michael Rother of NEU!, who were later joined by Brian Eno.

On Friday 23rd October Grönland Records will release the entire Harmonia back catalogue as a five vinyl box set, including previously unreleased material recorded 40 years ago at Harmonia HQ: Forst, Lower Saxony, Germany.

The box set includes ALL available records ever made by HARMONIA:

MUSIK VON HARMONIA (1974)
Digitally Remastered
DELUXE (1975)
Digitally Remastered
TRACKS AND TRACES (1976)
Double Vinyl including the “lost” Brian Eno recordings, which were found and originally released in 1997
LIVE (1974)

And in addition to the four Harmonia albums there will be a fifth vinyl:
DOCUMENTS 1975
previously unreleased recordings from Hamburg gigs and 2 studio tracks from Forst

In addition to the five vinyl recordings, also included in the box set is a pop up artwork of the rambling mansions Moebius, Roedelius, Rother and, for a while, Eno called home in Forst, a lush 36 page booklet with previously unreleased photo material documenting the history of Harmonia plus the original Harmonia Live Poster and download code for all the albums in the box.

A new website for the project has been built and can be found at
