Much sought-after Krautrock classic from 1973, now for the first time remastered from original analogue master tapes. Available in two different vinyl and Compact Disc editions. Walter Wegmüller (1937 - 2020) was a Swiss-Jenish artist who grew up in difficult circumstances in Bern. After training in Basel, Bern, Paris and London, he began his artistic career. In addition to painting and sculptural works, Walter Wegmüller occupied himself with the entire spectrum of art. He gained widespread international attention, especially from 1974 onwards, with the publication of his "Zigeuner Tarot" He was successful at countless exhibitions in Europe and overseas and was repeatedly awarded prizes and distinctions. However, he never forgot his origins as a Verding child and "Rome child from the Kalderasch tribe". In 1973 he released the album Tarot with an all-star band. Successful musicians such as Klaus Schulze, Manuel Göttsching, Harald Grosskopf, Dieter Dierks, Hartmut Enke, Jürgen Dollase, Walter Westrupp played in the band. It remained Walter Wegmüller's only foray into the world of music. The album was last released on vinyl in 1976, the CD in 2000. This version here is the first remaster ever. Particularly sought after by collectors is a deluxe box which, in addition to 2 vinyl discs, contains various cards by the artists as well as explanatory texts on the Tarot reference and reprints of the Tarot cards by Walter Wegmüller.
The original analogue master tapes were transferred with higher resolution and remastered with great care. 180g, black double Vinyl. Comes in poly-lined inner sleeves and in a gatefold. Remastered by Dieter Dierks and Dennis Flüchter.
