Song of the Day - Yet Another Live Version of "Ruckzuck"

This wonderfully percolating, flute-free take on "Ruckzuck" is from a show at Fairfield Halls, Croydon, 9.21.1975:

It goes to show how many different ways the simple but effective structures of Kraftwerk's tunes could be endlessly reinterpreted by them. They were still subtly reconfiguring their hits in live performance when I saw them in 1997.

Hell, I could create a whole blog devoted to the versions of "Autobahn" I have socked away.
Of course, you'll want the entire Fairfield Halls show, so download it here, from Guitars101.
