News: Klockwerk Orange album reissued!

Well.... this news did not come from any of my usual sources. Just an anonymous comment on my CDRWL album entry. No links, no nuthin. Just a label I hadn't heard of before (Digatone). Many times I get notices for pirate issues that I just ignore and delete - but not this time! A little research shows we have the real deal here folks! This is exciting stuff... Dealers, start stocking up!

Here's the Facebook page where you can validate the story. Here's the official blurb: "

Abrakadabra
1975/2013 Reissue als 2xLP Album + CD

Eine der außergewöhnlichsten österreichischen LPs der 1970er Jahre mit dem wundersamen Titel “Abrakadabra” stammt von einer obskuren Teenagerband aus dem Tiroler Alpenland: Klockwerk Orange. Als das Album 1975 erscheint, sind die medialen Reaktionen verhalten, 38 Jahre später hat sich die Platte zu einer weltweit gesuchten und ultra-kostspieligen Monster-Rarität des Psychedelic Rock gemausert. Internetforen von Südkorea bis Chile, von Kanada bis Thailand diskutieren über das irgendwo zwischen Symphonic Progressive Rock à la Pink Floyd und Emerson, Lake & Palmer und epischen Klassikelementen à la Bruckner angesiedelte Werk der Band Klockwerk Orange. Der Sammlerwert kratzt an der Tausend Euro Marke, nun wird das längst vergriffene Album vom Innsbrucker Label Digatone wiederveröffentlicht. Als besonderer Bonus enthält das Reissue auch noch drei unveröffentlichte Nummern plus zwei Live Versionen, aufgenommen bei einem Konzert im Innsbrucker Stadtsaal 1975. Die Neuauflage in Doppel-Vinyl-Form plus enthaltener CD ergänzt damit das ursprüngliche Werk um verschollene Aufnahmen der Band und gibt gleichzeitig den Startschuss für das in Wien und Innsbruck beheimatete Re-Release-Label DIGATONE.
Für alle Tiroler Fans wird der „neue“ Klockwerk-Tonträger im Rahmen der beiden Konzerte: iMstrumental im Glenthof Imst am 19.5. und Maikonzert im Stadtsaal Landeck am 25.5. weiters noch am Vinyl-Day 19.5. von Tonmöbel Kafka, erhältlich sein."


This translates to (according to Google of course): "One of the most outstanding Austrian LPs of the 1970s with the wondrous title "abracadabra" comes from an obscure band of teenagers from the Tyrolean Alps Country: Klockwerk orange. When the album appears in 1975, the media are behavioral reactions, 38 years later, the board has blossomed into an internationally sought and ultra-expensive Monster rarity of psychedelic rock. Internet forums from South Korea to Chile, from Canada to Thailand discuss this somewhere between Symphonic Progressive Rock a la Pink Floyd and Emerson, Lake & Palmer and epic classical elements à la Bruckner resettled work of the band Klockwerk orange. The collector value scratches at the thousand euro mark, now long out of the album will be released by the label Digatone Innsbruck. As a special bonus, the reissue also contains three numbers plus two unreleased live tracks, recorded at a concert in Innsbruck city hall in 1975. The double vinyl edition in shape plus included CD complements the original work order-lost recordings of the band, while giving the go-ahead for the company headquartered in Vienna and Innsbruck re-release label DIGATONE.
IMstrumental Glenthof in Imst on 19.5: For all fans of the Tyrolean "new" Klockwerk-recorded music under the two concerts will. and Maikonzert city hall Landeck at 25.5. still further on vinyl Day 19.5. be available from Tonmöbel
Kafka."


That's right vinyl hounds - a double LP too! Includes a full live concert from 1975 as noted above.

A few bits of info I've extracted from the German, that may or may not be obvious from the googlefied English:

The 2LP seems to come with the CD included.

No wonder you hadn't heard of Digatone before: they're a new reissue label and this is their first release. I wonder what else they've got in the pipeline...

Hi Bas,

Yes, I don't think I was clear either - but later I figured it was an LP with a CD. I ordered one from Austria and realized they were together as one package. I hope Digatone does other LPs/CDs as well!

Thanks for the note and clarification, Bas!
