Notes

The first CD versions from BRAIN and THUNDERBOLT/MAGNUM were made from reworked masters - in the early 90s, Schulze put mellotron and some reverb onto it, also he made the tracks a bit shorter. The original version - apart from the old LP - is on the MANIKIN version from 1995, and the REVISTED RECORDS version from 2005.

At the beginning of Floating you can hear "The Lord's Prayer" spoken by an Arabic reciter.

There are several different covers with Schulze portraits in different positions, with and without the circle around it. The cover photos are from Guido Harari.

The 1995 MANIKIN version bonus track Supplement is a variation of Mindphaser and from the same recording session.

In 2005 MOONDAWN was the thirteenth Schulze album reissued by REVISTED RECORDS as part of a series of Schulze album reissues. The reissue bonus track Floating Sequence is from the same recording session and in fact a variation of Floating.

Some music from MOONDAWN was used in the Suisse film "Forscher des Vertikalen - Auguste Piccard" and in a film of Arts Channel called "The Moguln" (1989).
