from http://writing.upenn.edu/pennsound/x/S-Press.php:

Edition S Press, founded 1969 by Angela Koehler, Nikolaus Einhorn and Axel Knipschild in Hattingen near Bochum (West-Germany), was a privately funded small-press venture connected to a non-profit gallery. Angela Koehler’s brother Michael joined in 1972 and took over in 1980, running the label until his death in 2005.

The basic principle was to publish an international selection of works on audio-cassette and (many titles) reel-to-reel tape, produced in close cooperation with the authors.

Almost every work is spoken by the author, unless otherwise intended (works for multiple voices or if author is deceased).

Circulation varied with a maximum total run of around 300 copies in case of ‘classics’ (Raoul Hausmann, Otto Nebel) or ‘stars’ (Patti Smith, John Cage); this may not include later editions / re-issues.

The S Press catalog contains inconsistencies concerning alternative titles (e.g. Fast Speaking Woman by Anne Waldman contains the same material as Non-Stop); catalog-numbers (e.g. Michael Brownstein Brainstorms appears as #66 and #70); multiple catalog-numbers for one release (e.g. S Press Tape #27-28-29 John Cage Talking to Hans G Helms On Music and Politics); and alternative cover-artworks of re-issues. Some announced releases have never been published (e.g. Velimir Khlebnikov, Albrecht/d., August Stramm, William Burroughs, René Bastian, Reinhold Koehler, Rolf-Dieter Brinkmann, Bobbie Louise Hawkins). Even after in-depth research of the S Press papers (Archives of the Akademie der Künste, Berlin) and meetings with two of the original founders, Angela Koehler and Nikolaus Einhorn, these inconsistencies could only be solved to a certain extent.

If you are in possession of releases by S Press that are not listed here, or have any suggestions please get in touch with PennSound.
