kraf and florian

Label misprint of Kraftwerk's Ralf & Florian LP (1975), via Discogs:

kraf_and_florian

You know, Kraf & Florian, those German techno dudes. I actually own the misprinted version (purchased from a cutout bin) and either forgot or never noticed the error until yesterday. Here are some scans from Discogs of the outer sleeve of some other owner's slightly soiled copy:

This was back when they had hair, and were relaxed and having a good time, before the addition of two percussionists and the pose of ultimate robotic regimentation that commenced with Trans Europe Express and The Man Machine and still hasn't ended. Members have come and gone, like replaceable parts (including Florian) so now it's just Ralf Hütter and some substitutes -- the MOMA-ready incarnation of the band.
