from de Luxe Album (Vertigo Berlin 1975) —from their 2nd album Deluxe, this track sounds rather space agey mixed with that wonderful Krautrock tribal rhythm thanks to Guru Guru drummer Mani Neumeier

Harmonia “Deluxe (Immer weiter)”
from Deluxe Album (Independent Label Services 1975) —the first track from Harmonia's 2nd LP.
