Notes

DIG IT is Schulze's first fully digital recording.

On Death Of An Analogue and Synthasy you can hear Schulze "sing" via a vocoder.

The bass and drum on Weird Caravan stems from a tape loop recorded by the band Ideal, which were produced by Schulzes IC label. The same tape loop was used for their song Telephone.

The cover is by Klaus Schulze, Claus Cordes and Michael Weisser. In 1982 the East German AMIGA Label reissued DIG IT under the name ELEKTRONIK-IMPRESSIONEN with complete different cover art by Gerd Fortagne.

In 2005 DIG IT was the sixth Schulze album reissued by REVISTED RECORDS as part of a series of Schulze album reissues. The reissue bonus track Esoteric Goody is from the same recording sessions. The additional bonus DVD (62:22) contains Klaus Schulze's Stahlsinfonie concert at "ars electronica 1980" in Linz, Austria. It was filmed by the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation on 8 September 1980. Guest musician on this event was Thomas "Tommy" Betzler on drums and percussion.
