Without doubt, the recordings of Tangerine Dream have made the greatest impact on the widest variety of instrumental music during the 1980s and '90s, ranging from the most atmospheric new age and space music to the harshest abrasions of electronic dance. Founded in 1967 by Edgar Froese in Berlin, the group has progressed through a full three dozen lineups (Froese being the only continuous member with staying power) and four distinct stages of development: the experimentalist minimalism of the late '60s and early '70s; stark sequencer trance during the mid- to late '70s, the group's most influential period; an organic form of instrumental music on their frequent film and studio work during the 1980s; and, finally, a more propulsive dance style, which showed Tangerine Dream with a sound quite similar to their electronic inheritors in the field of dance music.

This anthology is the most complete (and of course, the largest) collection of TD albums that is roaming the net these days. Together with the "Tangerine Tree"-collection, it contains more then 200 albums from five decades! Nevertheless, there are better-quality versions of some of these albums floating around, especially here on AvaxHome, the place for high quality music. Those of you, who can tell the difference between 192kbps and 256 kbps or between 320kbps and FLAC, you may like to regard this collection as a basis and upgrade your archive from time to time with better bitrate versions if and when they're available. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the work and art of Tangerine Dream as much, as I do.

Notes
In 1979 Edgar Froese met Johannes Schmoelling, who joined Tangerine Dream to reestablish the trio status of the group. This lineup would come to be regarded by many fans as the strongest in the band's history. The first record project of the new line-up was Tangram (the title originating from a very old Chinese puzzle), released in the spring of 1980. It was recorded in Chris Franke's new Polygon studio complex in Berlin, and once again the music filled up two complete sides of an LP and had a warmer, almost symphonic sound than previous TD albums. Tangram is regarded to be one of the most dramatic albums ever released by the group. The mixture of smoothness with familiar TD elements landed the album in the British Top 40.

Notes
The 1981 studio album Exit contained six tracks produced with the then latest equipment, including the Fairlight Computer Instrument. According to Edgar Froese, they built everything around the MCI mixing console, because they needed to have all the instruments quite near. They did not use acoustic instruments much at all and they did not need an recording engineer. They just had everything around them, the same way as onstage.

The opening title Kiew Mission featured a Russian actress reciting words about world peace and communication. In the album's press release Edgar Froese commented: "The words are directed at people in Russia. It's a very spiritual message we hope will ease the situation over here. If you're in Europe right now you would see that all people talk about the Third World War. As musicians we can use our music to say something about the positive side and hope our message gets through."

Edgar Froese was very engaged in the anti-nuclear cause and had organised that thousands of copies of Exit were shipped and distributed free "to different people in Russia; people in the political power structure, in the arts and just to the ordinary Russian people too." A short time before Exit was released, Tangerine Dream had played a special disarmament concert at the Reichstag building in West Berlin in front of about 100,000 people.

Notes
Soon after the 1980 studio album Tangram was finished TD began the work on the soundtrack for the Michael Mann film Thief starring James Caan, Tuesday Weld, Robert Prosky and Willie Nelson (the UK title of the movie was Violent Streets, the German title was Der Einzelgänger, the French title was Le Solitaire). William Friedkin, director of Sorcerer had recommended TD's music to Michael Mann. In the 1981 Electra/Asylum press release for Exit Edgar Froese stated: "It was a pleasure because we had a finished film to work from. When we did Sorcerer we created the music before a foot of the film had been shot. The exotic and shifting moods of Thief fitted in perfectly with the kind of music we played. Making the soundtrack allowed us to play around in the studio a bit and create a piece of music we thought would fit the picture like a glove, yet would also stand on its own."

Thief was the second big Hollywood film that TD worked on after Sorcerer. Michael Mann was professionally prepared and knew precisely what he wanted. Up to this point, no one had ever used a sequencer for this category of movies. Sorcerer, which was the first film in which sequencers appeared, took place in very strange primeval forest. Many people did not even really notice the exotic music. But Thief took place in a normal thriller setting - here the music was once unusual. This score was and is one of the most unusual of its kind for American film, and TD received many offers after. Michael Mann, who the band later worked for on The Keep, really helped TD quite a lot on the way when he offered this film to them.

There were two versions of the album; only the US release from 1981 included the track Confrontation that was composed and performed by Craig Safan. All other worldwide releases featured the composition Beach Scene (itself an extended version of the opening title Beach Theme) instead, though, by mistake, the US track listing was printed on the covers of some of the first releases.

There have been rumours that Confrontation was composed by Safan but played by TD, as the cover information suggests, but issue #9 of the newletter of TD's now defunct official fan club (TDIFC) clearly states: "During the time Michael Mann was editing and dubbing the movie Thief, TD played some gigs in Italy. Michael rang them in Venice and asked for a final guitar sequence which should close the movie. There was no time for the band to step into an Italian studio to record such a piece of music. What's very unusual for TD, happened. Michael had to ask an LA based guitarist to compose what's called later Confrontation on the record. It had to have playing technique and a TD sound. Virgin records, who did the release of the record outside the States, didn't like the piece or the whole procedure. It was done and taken off the tape. Business as usual!"

Notes
"Let there be more light!"
- Christ

From mid October to late November 1982, TD toured in Europe performing 31 gigs at all in Austria, Hungary, Yugoslavia, the UK, Belgium, West and East Germany. The concert at the Dominion Theatre in London was released only a few weeks after on the record Logos Live. According to Johannes Schmoelling, this is one of his favourite albums. He considers "the live concept and the smooth transition between one idea and the next to be the key of the album's success."

Logos Live features only 50 minutes of the original concert: The first six and the last 39 minutes of the main set plus one of the three encores. The remaining music is for some part officially unreleased by now, other tracks origin from the albums Exit (1981), White Eagle (1982), The Keep (1983, released 1997) and Poland (1984). A remastered audience recording of the complete concert has been released by TD fans in 2003 as Tangerine Leaves Volume 1: London 1982.

The first series of the LP released in Germany contained a 4-page text sheet in German language, 'Die Elektroniker der ersten Stunde', with a band history 'Tangerine Dream 1972-1982' and with covers, track listings and catalogue numbers of all TD and Edgar Froese solo LPs available by Virgin in Germany. The front page graphics reminds of the LP cover of White Eagle and was later reused by bootleggers for the Timeless Space release.

Producer(s) Edgar Froese

Notes
Soon after the 1982 studio album White Eagle had been finished, TD toured in Australia. In fact touring and recording was all the group did then. On the road, Johannes Schmoelling visited some exotic locations. Later he remembered: "It was always a unique way of refilling the empty batteries of our creativity. Every time we came back from a trip we went into the studio and started recording. For myself it was a great adventure, performing in front of an audience in different countries, feeling the emotion of the crowd as they reacted to the music. There are deep memories of concerts and I think you never find as much emotion when you perform in the studio."

As the first release of the so-called "Tangerine Dream Classics Edition" TDI issued the album Sohoman in 1999, featuring the first part of the Sydney concert. However, this was not the first time that this recording hit the market. A bootleg LP with the strange title Leprous Appearance On Wednesday which appeared 1984 and was re-released in 1993 on the bootleg CD Dreaming features the same part of this concert. Even if this bootleg mentions Melbourne as source, it turned out later that it is the Sydney recording. When comparing these recordings, they prove that Sohoman has been reworked to obtain better quality. Sounds and chords have been added, thus the CD sounds "tangentized", like fans name TD's style of reworking older material like on the Tangents box. Nevertheless, this type of reworking is not mentioned on the CD cover or in the booklet.

All five compositions on the CD can be heard as one long track with the typical bridges in between. Convention Of The 24 and White Eagle are live versions of the tracks from the album White Eagle (1982); Logos is an excerpt of the long composition that had been played on the European tour later that year and that has been released on the album Logos Live (1982). Ayers Majestic and Bondi Parade have not been available officially before the release of Sohoman. Both tracks have the a very rhythmic structure and are typical for TD's 1981/82 live appearances, though obviously they have been further reworked for this release.

In 2001 the CD was re-released with a slightly different cover artwork, especially the white frame of the cover was removed and a spelling error ('Edagar Froese') on the back insert was fixed, and the last track was retitled Bondi Parade.

As already mentioned, Sohoman features only the first half of the concert; the second, officially still unreleased half and the encores contain some more unreleased material besides well-known music from the albums Force Majeure (1979), Exit (1981) and White Eagle (1982). The complete, untouched concert (taken from a radio broadcast) has been fan-released as Tangerine Tree Volume 37: Sydney 1982.

Notes
Another old TD soundtrack had been made available on CD in 1994. The story of the US film, directed by Stephen Sommers in 1989, does not seem very extraordinary: it deals with the well known subject of man and woman, cars and money… As stated on the CD insert, this album was prepared without the musical authorisation of TD. This resulted in a large number of very short music tracks.

Notes
"Consider Your 'Self'"
- Buddha

The last official studio album for Virgin, Hyperborea was recorded in August 1983. The title refers to the mythological land beyond the cold North wind, an earthly paradise of eternal sunshine. In Rudolf Steiner's anthroposophical book Hyperborea is named as the second earth race after the so called Polaric race, followed by the Lemurian, Atlantis and Aric race. In a interview with the journalist Mark Prendergast in January 1994 Johannes Schmoelling remembers: "Like Logos Live, Hyperborea was determined by the new generation of digital synthesisers and sampling technology. We were able to memorise sounds and used a lot of sampled drum sounds. We invented new rhythm structures by using a special arpeggiator technique and so on. The title No Man's Land was influenced by the film 'Gandhi' and its brilliant soundtrack."

Notes
It seemed to be a never ending story of announcements, delays and denials - the release of TD's soundtrack for the Michael Mann movie The Keep, done in 1983 with the line-up Edgar Froese, Chris Franke and Johannes Schmoelling. The album was for the first time to be issued in 1984 by Virgin, catalogue numbers had already been printed in lists, and some people believe that even a handful of LP copies may have hit the shops then. But the LP was drawn back by Virgin due to copyright problems. In the following years it had been announced several times, but the only releases had been some bootlegs (including the 1995 CD release The Keep besides several different CD-R versions) and the cover version The Keep by a band called "The Fantasy Merchants" in late 1995 featuring re-recorded material from several TD soundtracks including some tracks from The Keep.

In 1997, more than 13 years after the first information, TD announced: "Edgar spent more than six weeks to bring the original score material from the early '80s into a CD format. Jerome finally did TD's DQC mastering." The CD would include "most of the material known from the picture plus some of those tracks which have not been used within the movie due to director's decision".

TD's own label TDI issued a special designed edition of just 150 copies which were sold on the Great Britain concert in November 1997, prior to the official release by Virgin that was announced for January 15th, 1998 - one more announcement that proved to be wrong. In May 1998 Edgar Froese explained his point of view: "We have a contract which we will have to insist on", and the release date was announced for August. But in early September it turned out that Virgin had stopped once again all plans for the release as there were still open contractual and legal questions.

In late 1999, TDI released another limited edition of The Keep. This time 300 copies with a different cover artwork were sold via Internet. They were not available separately but only in the so-called "Millennium Booster" set, together with a pre-release version of Great Wall Of China, an autographed card and a T-shirt - all together for the price of _180. As a surprise for those collectors who bought this set, the parcel included an additional promotional poster and another collector's item: the CD Sony Center Topping Out Ceremony Score.

As the official release by Virgin has not been seen until today, the 150 plus 300 copies issued by TDI are the only and ultra-rare official version of this soundtrack. In recent years copies of these releases have be sold for several hundred of dollars via internet auctions. Thus it was only a matter of time that a pirate version of this album was release. Finally, in late 2001, a bootlegged version of the official album appeared, including all tracks from the official version plus some related tracks from other official albums. Once again, this release was titled The Keep.

Notes
In 1984, Tangerine Dream supplied the music for the Science Fiction movie Wavelength, directed by Mike Gray, starring Robert Carradine, Cherie Currie and Keenan Wynn. Contrary to most other soundtrack albums featuring music by Tangerine Dream, the music was not reworked by TD for the album release; this resulted in a soundtrack album consisting of unusual many and short musical clips, some of them being remixes or excerpts from other compositions.

A counterfeit re-release of the CD appeared in 1995 and was distributed like an official release. The cover artwork was reproduced from the LP cover instead from the CD cover, but it does not mention any company or order number. The CD body itself is totally different, showing cones printed in black and only the writings 'Tangerine Dream', 'Wavelength' and 'RE 133'. All music material is absolutely identical to the official version.

Notes
The mid-eighties were a particularly productive period for Tangerine Dream recording several movie soundtracks. All three band members had invested their film soundtrack earnings into their own studios, as Edgar Froese recalls: "I was always looking around for soundtrack work to get things going, as one can imagine that it cost a lot of money. The aim was that each member of the band had his own recording place to work independently and prepare things, because if there was just one big studio and one member was working or trying to do his sound research, then the others would be just hanging around and waiting."

Another movie Tangerine Dream composed the music for was Firestarter in 1984, basing on a novel by Stephen King, starring Drew Barrymore, Heather Locklear and Martin Sheen. Fans had to wait six years for a release of this soundtrack album on CD. Eventually it was released in 1990 in the USA and the UK by different record companies, the UK version providing a much better sound quality than the USA release.

Notes
In 1984, TD produced the music for the thriller Flashpoint, starring Kris Kristofferson, Treat Williams, Rip Torn and Tess Harper. The soundtrack was released world-wide by EMI on vinyl and audio cassette, but the only CD release was done in the United Kingdom by the Heavy Metal label. This one revealed to be probably one of the rarest items of TD - especially if a collector was looking for a playing copy: Most copies of this series had a pressing error and were unplayable; so the company called back all the CDs and deleted Flashpoint from the lists soon after. A handful of playing copies are circulating among fans, but they were traded at prices of some-hundred Dollars. More than ten years later, in 1995, all those who were desperately seeking for this CD got the chance to buy it at a realistic price: After there had been rumours about re-releases for years, a US-based label re-issued the soundtrack at last.

Notes
In December 1983 Tangerine Dream once again performed behind the 'Iron Curtain': After they had played in East Berlin in January 1980 (released on the album Pergamon), now they performed in Poland's capital Warsaw. Edgar Froese later commented, "We've been called a political band, but when we played East Germany and Poland it was not for political reasons. We just wanted to play to the people there."

The album Poland was the first one released by the British Jive Electro label - 'The Blue Years' had begun. It was remarkable that this double album contained once again only previously unreleased material – there was no crossover music from their previous live recording Logos Live (1982). Like that album, Poland was essentially one continously-segued composition, split into for parts of about 20 minutes each due to the limitations of the vinyl format. TD's ability to smoothly join one distinct section of music to another was once again evident.

Tangerine Dream played two concerts at the Warsaw Ice Stadium on December 10th, 1983: There was an afternoon and an evening concert. The music was remixed and some overdubbing with new parts and bridges was made in early 1984 to provide a typical TD live album with very little noise from the crowd, and, of course, providing the usual excellent sound quality.
