Schulze Geschichte(n) ...

...gibt's unter dem Titel Wer Schulze heißt, muss was können. Die erstaunliche Klaus Schulze-Geschichte. Ich hab sie inzwischen erweitert auf 176 Seiten Din A4; sie ist gebunden wie "The Works" oder "The Essential...". Siehe das Photo hier weiter unten. Alles in Hand- (und Kopf) Arbeit.
Etwa 110 Fotos lockern die Geschichte erläuternd auf.
The (slightly different) English version The Amazing KS Story is also available. It's in the same format as "The Works" and "The Essential...". See pic below. THE AMAZING KS STORY has 160 pages and includes circa 100 pics to illustrate the four decades of KS. All handmade.


Here's the index of the English version: .. . . . . . . Und hier das deutsche Inhaltsverzeichnis:
The KS era, witnessed & a little bit co-shaped by kdm
These are the memories from all the years I have worked with KS, in the studio, the office, or on tour,
from the early seventies until the end of the millenium.
I had started to write it down in '86 and then - again and again - I added something...
Of course, I still work for Klaus' music. THE KS CIRCLE shows it, each month again.
I want to point out that I avoid promotion stories.
You'll find no myths and no legends among the 56300 words and the many pics...
...because the simple truth was often exciting & amazing enough.

erzählt (natürlich) die gleiche Geschichte (in 50.700 Wörtern), sie ist aber keine simple Übersetzung (solch Tun wäre mir zu langweilig) sondern ich schrieb sie separat.
Auch die etwa 100 Photos in beiden Bänden sind zum Teil unterschiedlich.
is the complete K.S. discography (and much more) from the sixties until the day I'll send it to a user.
Also Klaus' activities outside recording & releasing discs are mentioned in this chronology:
concerts, interviews, radio and tv appearances, soundtracks, videos, etc.
The Works is permanently updated by me, which means:
I send you the latest, newest edition, I print a "fresh" copy after your order.
At the moment it contains 890 records with the name of Klaus Schulze on it, including 151 samplers,
and 1750 titles, and 544 names, ...and all of it is indexed.
The huge & long main discography (etc.) is chronological from 1967 up to 2022.
And here is the complete "Table of Contents":

There is no joy in art & science without the detail !

PS: THE WORKS is not just a souvenir for 'fans' who would actually prefer to have a T-shirt.
It's a serious and very detailed inventory of Klaus Schulze's voluminous work over half a century.
No colour pics included. Just a few in b/w.

was a monthly newsletter (& much more), that existed for 28 and a half years, and
month by month I have sent a copy to all members of the Circle.
Each isssue had at least 12 pages, sometimes more.
(click ---> "useful links" ---> "The KS Circle" here at the left).
All in all I wrote & printed circa 4500 Circle pages.

PS, August 2020:
Yesterday a new binding machine has arrived and THE WORKS as well as the other books are produced in a hard cover from today on. The former front page is now the first page inside.
Each book has a different original KS photo on front, from my large collection.
