Ashra - New Age Of Earth album
New Age Of Earth (CD, Album, RE). Caroline Records. Brilliant spacey Kosmiche noodling from the unabashed hippies, released right into the maelstrom of Punk. Later Ashra stuff would veer too close to Pink Floyd for my liking, but here they make a thrilling ambient statement with the requisite 70's guitar noodling and moog sound. If Steve Reich made an ambient album, with guitarwork, then it may very well sound like this. I play this all the time, and it comes up fresh every time- always a good pointer. Highly recommended, and an early ambient pathfinder.

This title is more prophetic than most - though thankfully, New Age of Earth isn't quite as bathetic as any number of releases on Windham Hill; by this point, Gottsching was well into his electronic phase, the jam freakouts of the earliest albums replaced by a clean, crisp electronic bed. Unlike the rigorous pulse of fellow Krautrock pioneers Kraftwerk, though, Gottsching generally favored a more consciously playful and simply beautiful approach, aiming to create pleasant music to just enjoy and relax with
New Age of Earth (1976). Blackouts is a solo album by German musician Manuel Göttsching, released in 1977. All songs composed by Manuel Göttsching.
By 1976, when he issued the solo album New Age of Earth under the Ashra moniker, he proved himself equally adept at slowly shifting atmosphere.
