Ashra

Ashra was the second phase of the spacy Krautrock outfit Ash Ra Tempel, where founder (and, sometimes, sole member) Manuel Göttsching refocused the project's direction and began to concentrate more heavily on electronics. Especially with the revolving-door membership, Göttsching had always been the focal point of Ash Ra Tempel, making their mind-bending psychedelic jams into showcases for his cosmic guitar work. However, at the outset of the Ashra era, Göttsching was literally a one-man band, backing his guitar explorations with synths and sequencers that made his music sound cleaner and more pleasantly meditative. Ash Ra Tempel's status as a going concern was in doubt by the end of 1973, having fallen into a Göttsching-plus-guest-star pattern; Göttsching released a solo album under his own name in 1974, Inventions for Electric Guitar, where his interest in electronic music began to crystallize. Less a regrouping than a renaming, Ashra's inaugural release was 1976's New Age of Earth, one of Göttsching's finest efforts under any name. The 1977 follow-up, Blackouts, was also entirely solo. For 1979's Correlations, Ashra became a full-fledged band for the first time, with guitarist Lutz Ulbrich and drummer Harald Grosskopf officially joining the lineup. However, after 1980's Belle Alliance, the group went on hiatus. Göttsching recorded the proto-techno masterpiece E2-E4 under his own name, and Ashra didn't appear again until a 1989 reunion for the album Walkin' the Desert. Tropical Heat followed in 1991, and the group continued to record sporadically through the '90s. ~ Steve Huey

Ocean of Tenderness is sweet and tender without lapsing into treacle. It is a delicate raspberry buckwheat tart framed in a bed of honeyed grits just reminiscent of butter and sea salt.

I first heard this LP from the import section of a record store in Syracuse, NY. It is absolutely brilliant. It is absolutely one of my DIDs and never ever gets old. This is track 2 from side 1. Tracks 1 and 3 are the best and I have never heard them on Pandora. Ash Ra's music was very psychedelic originally, but New Age of Earth is an entirely instrumental pice of liquid space music to get extremely lost inside. Enjoy. Find. Purchase. It has been with my life for almost 40 years and I hope I

I was into Him as far back as the Late 70's He one the first in to this sound,
when they did long tracks of music, nice inter-peace floating.

This sounds like the soundtrack to Carl Sagan's Cosmos series. Good stuff.

The old ones listen to this in their temples of light in the sky above.

This is brilliant! I'm an old fan of kosmische music and never heard of Ashra. Thanks again, Pandora!
