Box set makes German band NEU! again

Groenland Records will be releasing a NEU! vinyl box set on June 29.

Included in the set are the German band's three studio albums from the 70s and two additional releases appearing for the first time: NEU!: 86, their most recent studio recordings and NEU!: 72 non-public text maxi-single. The set also includes a 36 page book with previously unpublished materials & photos by Anton Corbijn and Peter Lindbergh amonst others (you also get a digital code for downloads).

in their own words - "I am very happy to know that with the NEU! vinyl box set our fans will for the first time have the opportunity to hear the whole bandwidth of NEU!. My partner Klaus Dinger sadly passed away in 2008 but he has been in our minds all during the work on this box set and his visual ideas for NEU! were our inspiration. . . Most of all I'm thrilled about the release of the album NEU! ´86 which Klaus Dinger and I originally recorded in 1985/86, but left unfinished back then and which led to some unfortunate problems between Klaus and myself in the 90s. I now completely reworked the album from original multi-track and master tapes, and unearthed a few yet unknown tracks, which are essential for a full understanding of what Klaus and I focused on for NEU! in the mid 80s. It was my aim to present Klaus Dinger’s musical strengths and visions just as much as my own ideas. The best musical result was to be my only guideline, not the ego. All during the emotional process of reworking our album Klaus was on my mind and I contemplated what he would think about my decisions." -- Michael Rother, February 2010
