Body Love is my all time favorite Klaus Schulze release and also the album that introduced me to Klaus’ music nearly 30 years ago. From its very first notes, Body Love takes you on a cosmic journey past planets, newly born and dying stars, black holes, and exploding galaxies propelled by Klaus’ sequencers and Harald Grosskopf’s drumming. Hearing this music on the radio in 1977 was awe inspiring and did not prepare me for the shock I had discovering that Body Love was the soundtrack to a porno movie. Fortunately this fact does not detract from the mind journeys you take listening to this music. For the bonus material on the Revisited Records reissue, Klaus added the 23 minute “Lasse Braun,” recorded during the Body Love period, which is a fantastic complement to “Stardancer,” “Blanche,” and “P.T.O.”
