B13 continues to dig up rare live recordings of krautrock's most notable acts. Live At Ebbets Field In Denver 1975 / Live At Koeln Sartory Saal 1975 captures the Dusseldorf robots playing tracks from their Ralf und Florian and Autobahn LPs around the time of their first American tour. The recordings give the listener a chance to catch the group moving from the free-form electronics of their early releases towards the motorik rhythms they became known for. There's definitely a strong live feel to the recordings, with solos and improvisation playing a big part. The simple imperfections add a human element that is not as evident on some of Kraftwerk's studio recordings.
