Krautrock Archive, Vol. 1 is a fine compilation of recordings such electronic art-rock groups as Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream and Ashra made for the Pyramid record label between 1972 and 1974. By culling highlights from several of the major German prog-bands, Krautrock Archive, Vol. 1 functions as a good sampler and introduction for curious listeners, even though afficinados will find the collection unnecessary.
