Schulz was a member of bands including Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Temple before launching his solo career, with over 60 albums released to date.

He is especially known for his pioneering work with the Moog synthesiser, and ability to produce sounds that mimic “organic” instruments like the electric guitar.

Though La Vie Electronic Vol. 1 was released on CD in 2009, this is its first ever vinyl edition.

The 2xLP, limited to 1000 copies worldwide on white and black variants, comes with extensive liner notes and obi strip.
