Neu! is the debut album by German krautrock band Neu!. It was recorded in December 1971 at Studios, Hamburg, Germany, mixed at Star-Musik Studio, Hamburg, Germany, and released in 1972 by Brain Records. It was reissued by Grönland on 29 May 2001 and then licensed to Astralwerks for US distribution. This was members Michael Rother and Klaus Dinger's first recording together after they left Kraftwerk in 1971.
Neu! 2 is an album that is often dismissed, mostly because of what was on side 2 of the original vinyl release. It's pretty much mandatory to parrot the story that Neu! ran out of money before finishing the album, so they decided to record their single at different speeds to fill the second half. Neu! always had an experimental side, and too much thought went into the second half of the album for it to be dismissed as mere filler.
Album originally released in 1973. Recorded during four nights in the middle of January 1973. Mixed during three nights at the beginning of February 1973 in Studios, Hamburg, Germany. Movieplay, Movieplay.
After the considerable success of their self-titled debut album, Klaus Dinger and Michael Rother set out ambitiously to record a follow-up.

Neu! 2 (Für immer, Spitzenqualität and more). After the considerable success of their self-titled debut album, Klaus Dinger and Michael Rother set out ambitiously to record a follow-up. The first of the artistic and personal differences that existed between them not only began to surface, but to flourish in the face of a nearly impossible studio deadline and overly tight budget.
