Georg Trakl is the second track on the tenth album by Klaus Schulze, "X." (1978). The title refers to the German poet Georg Trakl (1887-1914).
Recorded: January to summer 1978
Composer(s): Klaus Schulze
Alternative Version(s): Discover Trakl
The first releases used only a short excerpt of Georg Trakl of about 5 minutes. When researching for the ULTIMATE EDITION box set, kdm found a tape with the complete version (28:02), released under the name Discover Trakl in the set. On the 2005 reissue of "X." another excerpt of 26:04 was used. So the full version can only be found in the deleted ULTIMATE EDITION set.
