Plank is one of those people you've never heard of, but whose influence is everywhere. He's best known as the producer/engineer for many classic "krautrock" bands in '70s Germany (Kraftwerk, Neu!, Cluster, etc.), but also worked on albums by Eurythmics, Devo and Ultravox. Brian Eno approached Plank to produce U2, but Plank decided he couldn't work with Bono and turned the project down. CDs 1-2 are a nice sampler of his production/engineering work (although it's a shame that Kraftwerk and a few other bands aren't included). CD 3 has some poorly-recorded but ultimately compelling live material with collaborators Dieter Moebius (of Cluster) and Arno Steffan. CD 4 is remixes/reworks, a few of which work well (especially "Broken Head"), the rest of which are pretty forgettable.
