Kraftwerk, the German based techno-rock group best known for their 1974 hit “Autobahn”, will be featured in SACD Surround Sound in their new box set entitled Minimum-Maximum. The new release will feature performances from their 2004 World Tour in both English and German.
What makes the box set unique is what is included. According to reports from several sources on the Internet including Side Line Music Magazine, the Minimum-Maximum box set will include 2 Disc DVD, 2 Disc Hybrid Surround Sound SACD, 2 Disc CD and 4 Disc Vinyl LP editions of the concert performances. (Since the SACD set is a Hybrid Surround Sound SACD, I’m puzzled why a 2 Disc CD edition would also be needed – or included.)
To date, the group’s record label, EMI/Capitol Germany has yet to provide a release date for the Minimum-Maximum box set. We’ll provide more information on this release when it becomes available.
