Since last posting here I picked up Vangelis - Invisible Connections. I remember being shocked when I first heard it about 20 years ago but actually its not too bad at all when you hear it on a decent hi fi. Still a bit weird though. I also got the remaster recently of Jarre's Rendez- Vous which has long been one of my favourite electronic albums. Sounds even better now and thankfully they have now straightened out the separation of tracks on the CD.

Klaus Schulze-Moondawn
Jurgen Fritz-Hard To Be A God (soundtrack)
Galactic Explorers-Epitaph For Venus
Edgar Froese-Aqua

It used to be, but it is long out of print.

The new cd by Arc (Umbra) is excellent.  I also had the pleasure to see these guys (Ian Boddy and Mark Shreeve) live in November and that was a superb gig.  It gave me the chance to pick up a very obscure cd by Redshift too, so all the better.

Another tremendous electronic cd I got recently is Ulrich Schnauss' A Long Way To Fall.  He is not an artist that is on pa but if you know his music you'll agree he's a good fit (he is currently a member of Tangerine Dream, at least their touring incarnation).  If you like moody, atmospheric instrumental music with a slight Berlin School influence you'll probably like this.

Radio Massacre International is really an underrated band.I love the way they use guitar and mellotron in their music.Emissaries and Rain Falls in Grey are highly recommended.

Need to check out this band , been aware of them for ages but never taken the plunge. The supplier CD services mentioned above lists them as one of their top sellers over the last 10 years or so.

Ah, C&D in Dundee. I used to get their print catalogues. I looked on YT and only found "Finale/Epilogue."

Rain Falls in Grey is Floydian psychedelic/space rock album with many guitars.Emissaries is a TD-esque electronic album.You better start with Emissaries.
There are mp3 samples on their website for each album which can help you.

This band has such an enormous catologue of music I doubt anybody has the whole lot!  I personally have 10 of theirs and I could not possibly recommend you start with Emissaries as it's the weakest of theirs I've heard.  Knutsford In May is probably the best cd I've got, recorded live under the dish at Jodrell Bank.  It just oozes atmosphere.  Solid States is a very good double album, a few weaker tracks but several gems.  The best music I've heard by them though is on the live dvd "M21".  The music really is exceptional - a 5 star electronic gem with plenty of spacey Floyd-esque sections.  Unfortunately it only appears available on dvd, a real shame.

This topic has opened my interest into electronic music more. I used to think most electronic music barely had any variation in songs.

A great article here, especially for the less travelled where 70s electronic music is concerned:

Reading some of these posts has also made me pull out some of my seventies electronic music.
In the last couple of days I have listened to:
Symphonic Slam's self titled first album from 1976
Stratosfear by Tangerine Dream also from 1976
Nipponjin by Far East Family Band from 1975
