The 50-year anniversary

Klaus Schulze's first real concert in front of a few thousand took place half a century ago, on the 15th of February 1973, on stage of the Parisian "Thť‚tre de l'Ouest" (T.O.P.). The French cultural magazine Actuel organized this outstanding event under the heading Le Rock Allemand.
