The Ultimate Edition is a limited edition 50-disc CD box set released by Klaus Schulze in 2000 collecting his previous limited edition multi-disc box sets Silver Edition (1993, 10 discs), Historic Edition (1995, 10 discs), and Jubilee Edition (1997, 25 discs), which contain unreleased archival recordings in addition to new studio material. A further five discs were added for this release. Several discs were altered and restructured from their original versions: discs 7 and 8 were extended by five minutes; discs 11, 13, 14, and 22 were slightly remastered; and discs 41 and 42 were restructured. Two tracks from Jubilee Edition were omitted ("The Unspoken Thing" from Disc 19 and "Ludwigs Traum" from Disc 21). The discs are divided into five boxes of ten discs, housed in individual cardboard sleeves. Between 2009 and 2015, tracks from this set were reissued as La Vie Electronique, a series of multi-disc CD sets releasing all the material of The Ultimate Edition in chronological order.[1]
