1 stars Unfortunately, not limited enough!

I bought this album in 1974 for one reason, it cost 54 pence (Sterling) at a time when a full priced album was over 2. This was one of a number of albums released in the UK, mainly by German bands, at a budget price in an effort to find a wider audience.

"Limited edition" is a collection of incoherent ramblings, ambient sounds, and repetitive monotones, recorded between 1968 and 1974.
