Notes

The complete title is "Dziękuję Poland" Live '83. Most of the track titles are names of Polish towns, but it is unlikely, that each track stems from that exact town. Just Dzien Dobry! is definately recorded in Gdansk.

Katowice (Iris) is essentially a live version of Spielglocken. Lodz (Janina) is in fact a live version of Ludwig II. Von Bayern, from "X." (1978).

On the Polish issue the titles are slightly different, using Polish orthography and spelling (i.e. Warszawa ) .

The cover design is by Steer Design and Claus Cordes.

In 2006 DZIEKUJE POLAND was the seventeenth Schulze album reissued by REVISTED RECORDS as part of a series of Schulze album reissues. The bonus track Dzien Dobry! was recorded on the last concert of the tour in Gdansk, the other bonus The Midas Hip Hop Touch is a studio recording from the same era. The 2006 reissue is the only release of DZIEKUJE POLAND going under the name of Klaus Schulze alone - all former releases were by Klaus Schulze & Rainer Bloss. Also the track order was changed to include the longer bonus track, and the additional female names behind the track title were left out.

Some music from DZIEKUJE POLAND was used in:

  • the Polish tv play "Sketches from the Man without Qualities"
  • the German underground videos "Streng verboten" and "Fast gestattet"
  • a French tv documentary about child abuse (2004)
