A good while ago I posted the excellent 'TV2' by Elektric Music, a 12" single only available on vinyl and DAT. I recently realised when I ripped it I made a very silly mistake, I have now rectified this and have re-ripped again and it sounds way better than before. So to all of you wonderful people out there who originally downloaded and for those who missed out click the link below and have your musical minds blown once again by this terrific piece of music, also included this time is the b-side 'Television', enjoy! ... 5dDWnQqrzY

"TV" is the best song Kraftwerk never recorded! This track alone showed that Karl Bartos was indeed an integral element of Kraftwerk's output while he was a member.

Enjoyed your upload of "TV 2" when you shared it a few years ago, and this re-upload is a big improvement in quality. Too bad this mix was not made available on any CD release. Thank you for sharing!!
