Wagner and Nietzsche have the same source as Liebe and Hass, just the mixes are different. The "soft" mixes were done by Schulze, the "wild" mixes are by André Zenou, who is also responsible for the cover artwork.

All are continuous tracks - although subtitles are given (only inside the booklet of the first issue), it is not possible to skip to them.

The cover design is by André Zenou.

In 2005 DAS WAGNER DESASTER was the fifteenth Schulze album reissued by REVISTED RECORDS as part of a series of Schulze album reissues. The reissue bonus track Encore Sevilla is from a concert in Sevilla in 1991. For inclusion of this bonus track, the order of titles were altered on the reissue.
