Rarity Scale – Mega Rare
A mega rare German krautrock classic from 1975. The vinyl of this copy is near perfect. It plays without any issues. The vinyl looks super clean and shiny with onley a very few super tiny lines which are inaudible.
The playback has only the slightest of backgrouhas barely seen a record player in all those years. Especially on this fragile black labels it is good to see how often a record has been played. This very copy is probably filed away almost immediately after buying. We grade the disc NM
The sleeve looks lovely with sharp corners, near perfect spine and opening. There is no writing only a small stamp on the inside of the sleeve. The front of the cover has a few minor creases but we think this is nothing serious.
Overall we grade this sleeve EX+ to NM! A true gem for the serious Krautrock record collector.

A large selection of rare vinyl records from the golden era.
Arktis was a German band and released 5 albums over a period from 1973 till 2006. Arktis Tapes is there second album and considered as there best. It was released on the Germen “Bonn-Bons Records” label from Bonn. This was a very tiny label only released work from Arktis and a single by “Electric Sandwich”.
The music on Arktis Tapes is heavy kraut rock from the mid-70’s. The instrumental jams are great! Very heavy fuzz guitars! We love it! The production of this album isn’t that great. You can hear the budget to produce the album was narrow. But to our minds that’s just what you want to feel with an obscure underground kraut record! This album was later released on cd with 2 bonus tracks. But off course, we prefer the original work from the 70’s! An original pressing gives you the full experience!
The band consists 4 members, Harry Kottek, Karin Toppig, Klaus Blachut and Klaus Gollner.
