Originally released in 1979, Dune is one of Schulze's most important albums, featuring Arthur Brown on vocals reading a poem by Schulze, and Wolfgang Tiepold on cello. This release includes new liner notes and photos, and a never before released 23-minute bonus track! Klaus Schulze first attracted attention as a member of the German progressive rock band, Tangerine Dream. Following the release of their debut LP, Electronic Meditation, he departed for a solo career. Klaus' recorded work typically features extended pieces sometimes filling an entire album built around computer-generated synthesizers and other specially programmed electronic effects. Klaus Schulze remains a cult figure in the United States, where the bulk of his prolific output has until now been available only through the import bins. He is widely considered an avant-garde mainstay as well as a founding father of both the new-age space music and electronica genres.

Romantic cello journey
(5 out of 5 stars)
"It is worth buying at least for the first track, which is a romantic passage with accidental cello performance by Wolfgang Tiepold. This is one of the few Schulze works that do not involve sequencer rhythms. He has a rare ability to create climate that meditatizes you completely. I consider "Dune" as one of the best works in electronic lanscape music, losing only to his "Mirage". Highly recommended to all, not only KS fans."

"Dune is a schizophrenic Schulze album, with the first piece being a dark, violent, and beautiful cello and synth piece, and the second being a bizarre composition in which a monologue read by Arthur Brown is spoken over a flat and uninteresting drum beat. It seems to represent the transition for Schulze from the ambient and beautiful 70's to the cheesy drum-machine and sequencer driven 80's. The first piece is certianly worth the money, but first-time Schulze fans should check out Moondawn, Mirage, and X before getting this half-good, half-bad album."

"Klaus took upon himself to try and create an album to represent the Sci Fi book Dune and the first track comes across as eerie sci fi alien music. Classic and abstract. The second side has British sixties legend Crazy Arthur Brown rambling along improvising words to the music- pretty good though distracting. Arthurs involment with Klaus would continue and show up on the album LIVE and on side projects like Time Actor and Brown's electronic outings. This is a good album and makes a real connection with the past both synth music and sixties."
