Software - Past-Present-Future vol.1 (1987)

"Past-Present-Future, Vol. 1 is a collection of "the best music" from three Software CD's plus three new tracks. Michael Weisser and Peter Mergener chose tracks that represent the confusion caused by the vanishing of traditional logic and structure as advanced technology takes over. Mergener and Weisser are the ultimate anomaly. They are lamenting the downside of new technology while using the advanced technology of digital e-music. They have done that often and sometimes they have missed by a mile and a half. They hit this one dead center. By any and all standards, this is an excellent blend of Berlin school electronica and sci-fi ambience. It will appeal to fans of Rudy Adrian, Craig Padilla, Ron Boots and Ian Boddy. It is hard to find and usually available in cut-out bins." (taken from "allmusic" site)
Track 1 originally released on "Beam-Scape"
Tracks 3, 4 and 6 taken from "Chip-Meditation"
Track 7 taken from "Phancyful Fire"
Tracks 2 and 5 previously unreleased.

Get it..

Thanks for this post. I had a CD of Fragrance, and am interested in how their other music sounds.
