THE CRACK IN THE COSMIC EGG
Encyclopedia of Krautrock, Kosmische Musik, & other progressive, experimental & electronic musics from Germany, 1st print run December 1996, 2nd print run May 1997, A4, 320ppbook reviews
The definitive encyclopedia of Krautrock, Kosmische Musik and all things weird and wonderful from Germany. A huge comprehensive 1kg book (thick cover, quality stitch-bound paperback), with an awesome... 1177 entries (Krautrock bands, soloists, etc.), 2500 albums (including musician details), plus non-LP singles, compilation contributions, as well as two 16 page picture sections, including many rare photos, 150+ LP covers. Praised by the media & Krautrock musicians. Well-over 4,000 copies sold!
689 mb, and some 3,000+ pages
Probably everything you ever needed to know about German prog & experimental music! To realistically price this project, taking in all the work that was involved, would have meant a crazily high price. But, we are not greedy, so we decided upon pricing it the same as the original book at £20, which I'm sure you'll agree is remarkable value for something that is so mind-bogglingly huge!

You wanted a printed version of the CD-Rom for easy reference? Well, this is it, in magazine form. It's the main guts of the Rom, all the main articles and full discographies, all crammed-in a bit more than the original book, but not some of the extra sub-pages (galleries or concert listings), and only a few of the pictures.
