Plank, like but a few production greats – Joe Meek, George Martin, Phil Spector, Martin Hannett – wasn’t just a talented studio hand: he was a collaborator, and sometimes, an architect. Krautrock as we know it would likely not exist without him. A bear of a man from Hütschenhausen, West Germany, Plank began his career as soundman for an icon of the old Germany, fading Weimar starlet Marlene Dietrich

Konrad "Conny" Plank once described his work as producer as having the ability to "hit record at the right time. Such modesty does not seem befitting a genuine production maverick such as Plank. After all, this was the producer who ushered in and nurtured Krautrock through his work with Neu!, Cluster, Kraftwerk (on their first four albums), Harmonia, and many more. From his studio on the outskirts of Cologne, he was the man - up until his death in 1987 - who helped artists like Can, Ultravox, Eurythmics, and .

Anyone who knows only of Plank through his role as Krautrock midwife in the 70s is in for a surprise. In the 80s, Plank went on to produce Devo, DAF, Eurythmics and an early incarnation of Underworld called Freur, as well as several less celebrated artists. In fact, it's fair to say the sheer amount of music collected here is formidable, daunting, a little overwhelming. In fact, with so much on offer, it takes a little while to clock the stark absence of Kraftwerk on the playlist. Also missing here is anything from Ash Ra Tempel, Czukay, and Guru Guru, so while one can say this compilation is extensive, it is certainly far from exhaustive. However, what we do get is no less vital. Discs one and two are full of oddities, obscurities and seriously weird little musical tangents which may surprise even experienced Plank fans.
