Album - pre-Kraftwerk, wydanie na cd Crown Records 1996.
Tone Float is an LP by the German band Organisation. Organisation was a pre-Kraftwerk band, having only produced and released one album, Tone Float. After the release, members of the group went on to form Kraftwerk. he album sold few copies on its UK-only release in August 1970, and is remembered because two of the band members, Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider-Esleben, later went on to form the group Kraftwerk. It was produced by Konrad "Conny" Plank. The album has never been officially reissued, although bootleg CDs and LPs appeared in the 1990s. These often included a bonus audio track, erroneously titled "Vor dem blauen Bock", which in fact is an instrumental named "Rückstoss Gondoliere", from a 22 May 1971 performance by Kraftwerk on the Bremen Beat-Club TV show. This song features the short lived line-up of Florian Schneider, Michael Rother and Klaus Dinger (Ralf Hütter had left the group during this period to pursue studies in architecture).
