Rare pre-Kraftwerk LP from 1970, originally released only in the UK! On Tone Float, the line up consisted of Ralf Hutter on organ, Florian Schneider on violin and flute, Basil Hammoudi on vocals, Fred Monicks on drums and Butch Hauf on bass. The LP features repetitive percussion and bass drum patterns, embellished with guitar, flute, violin and organ. Sections of the music are clearly '60s influenced and have an almost eastern feeling with scratchy violin and bongos. Tone Float was the last time that Ralf and Florian would rely on unrestrained expression and improvisation. With Organisation being a democratic five piece band, it was difficult to develop a disciplined approach. Any comparison between Tone Float and the later Kraftwerk sound is hard to draw.
