Manuel Göttsching playing electronic guitar and synthesizer, whose style and technique has greatly influenced today’s electronic, ambient and new age bands, founded his own band in 1970 with Harmut Enke on bass and Klaus Schulze (ex-Tangerine Dream) on drums. During the next few years he collaborated with a number of different artists including Lutz Ulbrich and Harald Grosskopf, the two with whom he made Correlation.
Correlation by Ashra
12 inch LP, German Import
Virgin Records, 1979, LC 3098
The sleeve Design & Photography of Correlation was by Hipgnosis, a highly talented British design group and is a good example of their well-known
eccentric humor. It features a mouth (of a woman) drinking from a water fountain which looks quite sexual. At least that’s how it appears to me. Their cover art was very much in demand and they created covers for hugely popular bands like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, XTC, Peter Gabriel, etc. Pink Floyd used them for practically all their albums, of which the most famous cover, of course, was Dark Side Of The Moon.
