Conny Plank 4CD box set collects production work, live recording and remixes

Conny Plank's work behind the desk for Kraftwerk, Neu!, Eno, Can and Cluster, among others, is being collected in a four disc set, titled Who's That Man - A Tribute To Conny Plank. The box set includes a two CD collection containing 21 tracks produced by Plank, from the likes of Arno Steffen, Möbius, Rödelius, Michael Rother, La Düsseldorf, DAF and NEU!, among others.

Also in the box is a live recording of a performance by Plank, Dieter Möbius and Arno Steffen as Trioformation.
