The third studio album by the German electronic band Kraftwerk. It was released in October 1973 on Philips. In it, the band moved towards their signature electronic sound.. In 1975, it reached number 160 on the US Top 200 Albums chart. Along with Kraftwerk's first two albums, Ralf und Florian has not been officially reissued anywhere to date, and the band has not performed any of their material live since the late 70s. Nevertheless, the album remains an influential and sought-after work. In 2008, Fact named it one of the 20 greatest ambient albums ever made.   The record included a "musical" poster with caricatures of Emil Schult, who played the electric violin live with the band (although he does not appear on the album recordings). Schult remained an employee of Kraftwerk. Cartoons illustrated each track of the album, as well as the city of Dusseldorf with the caption "In Dusseldorf on the Rhine, klingt es bald!", which literally translates from English as "In Dusseldorf on the Rhine it will sound soon"

But neither all this, nor the periodic tours in support of Black Sabbath and Budgie (not to mention the Friday concert at the Reading Festival in 1976) allowed them to become headliners.By 1979, the band began to break up, but when their song "Bootliggers" was selected for inclusion on the 1980s album Metal for Muthas (a compilation of emerging New Wave talents of British heavy metal such as Iron Maiden, Praying Mantis and Samson), Nutz reinvented themselves as Rage. This barely disguised new version of Nutz (not to be confused with the German power metal trio that appeared a few years later) replaced Newton with additional guitarist Terry Steers and recorded three more albums before finally disbanding in 1984. ...more
