Manuel Göttsching talks in Mint's series The Soundtrack of my Life
Mint (see below) publishes in its November 2022 issue a one-page article where Manuel Göttsching shares some memories about his pre-Ash Ra Tempel time (in German) and the album by the Rolling Stones which inspired him to form his first band with Hartmut Enke.
Austrian hard & heavy magazine reviews Join Inn
Stark!Strom is an Austrian rock and metal magazine featuring interviews, concert reports, record reviews and much more, mostly from heavy metal bands. On the same page as reviews from recordings of Ozzy Osbourne and Queensrÿche they write about Join Inn:
Blassgesichtige Trittbrettfahrer, die mit greller Genre-Kosmetik tiefe Falten des Authentizitätsdefizits kaschieren wollen, sollen weiter hohle Klanghüllen fabrizieren. Eine Antithese in Sachen stilistischer Pionierarbeit sind Originale wie Ash Ra Tempel. "Join Inn" von 1973 ist eine definitive Referenz dieser kosmisch-avantgardistisch-erfinderischen Krautrocklegende, jetzt als erstklassiges Re-Release auf 180-Gramm-Vinyl erhältlich. Mindtrips im Prog-Universum.
(The whole magazine can be read online. You will find the Join Inn review on page 42.)
Some German reviews of the two new Vinyl releases
The German "magazine for vinyl culture" Mint published in their October 2002 issue reviews of the recently released 50th anniversary editions of Join Inn and Seven Up. You can read them here (as a PDF in German). The German progressive rock magazine Empire also published reviews of the two records in its current edition.
50th anniversary vinyl editions of Join Inn and Seven Up coming soon!
50 years after their initial releases, the Ash Ra Tempel recordings Join Inn and Seven Up will be re-released as vinyl-only editions on 9 September 2022.

Join Inn was the last recording of the "classic" Ash Ra Tempel line-up with Manuel Göttsching (guitars), Hartmut Enke (bass) and Klaus Schulze (drums). It was the last recording with Hartmut Enke before he stopped making music forever, and the last recording with Klaus Schulze where he played the drums.

This edition of Seven Up contains some previously unreleased photos and the original manuscript by Timothy Leary about the seven levels of consciousness.
