- Aug 13, 2002First off- I want to slightly amend the comments I made about the Japanese
Independent Music book, specifically about how it doesn't seem like it was
meant serve as an intro/overview. I finally sat down and read all the
essays and Paul Collett's stands out as just that. I think there's an
expanded version on his web-site (http://noise.as).

The Historic Edition is only 10 CDs. You, no doubt, are referring to the
Ultimate Edition (which incorporates the Silver Edition, the Historic
Edition _and_ the Jubilee Edition):
I would bet dollars to doughnuts that the Merzbox is a more interesting
listen than any 64 hr collection of Schulze material (a guy who, if I'm
not mistaken, hasn't done much of note in the last 20 years or so). On
the other hand, I didn't realize there was only space in the world for one
50 CD box.
By the way, has anybody ever considered that the concept of (small e)
extreme inherent in a 50 CD box set is a deliberate aesthetic choice that
might be related to Akita's artistic pursuits?
