Tangerine Dream - Essential Collection

Artist: Tangerine Dream
P:
2006
This 2cd set brings together the highlights from the band's 10 most important album releases.
Distilling the essence of a force as monumentally influential and prolific as the German electronic music pioneers Tangerine Dream to a two-CD checklist of essentials is a daunting and ultimately impossible task. The group's soundtrack work alone would need to be relegated to a multi-disc box set to even scratch the surface, as would the early years of primal synthesizer explorations and the more recent decades of electronic dance music. Nonetheless, this tidy package manages to present a significant enough taste of Tangerine Dream's discography that the neophyte can come away from it with a working understanding of where the renowned avant-gardists began, and where they ultimately went. The first disc, for whatever reason, jumps ahead and focuses on the mid-'80s, leading off with the 22-minute title track from the Poland album (recorded live in said country), as daring and ambitious a piece of electro -symphonic dance music ever recorded. The remainder of the first disc stays in the '80s, bowing out with both parts of the difficult '21st Century Common Man,' drawn from the Tyger album.
Disc two backtracks to the beginning, appropriately launching with 'Genesis,' the epic that opened 1970's Electronic Meditation album. That title was particularly apt for this early experimental work, but over the next few years, as Tangerine Dream became more enamored of the Moog and other synthesizer technology, the music developed more organically as the musicians -- Edgar Froese has been the only constant throughout the many personnel changes -- found their place within this brave new world.
That the bulk of this disc is represented by the ambitious, lengthy title tracks of three consecutive early-'70s albums -- Alpha Centauri, Zeit, and Atem -- is more than likely no accident, as these are emblematic of what Tangerine Dream, in their formative and most creative era, were all about.

Tangerine Dream - Exit

Artist: Tangerine Dream
P: 1981 
Still, Exit contains two of the most intriguing short-form compositions the group ever released: the driving "Choronzon" and the pulsing, ever-evolving "Network 23", a truly arresting piece in its day, and one that still sounds good a few decades later. Choronzon was used on the Movie "Risky Buisness" with Tom Cruise in s differnet way and still, the complete CD is amilestone within all releases of TD.
Recorded and mixed in June 1981 in Berlin.
Composed and played by Edgar Froese, Chris Franke and Johannes Schmoelling.
Original sleeve design by Monica Froese.

Tangerine Dream - Fallen Angels

Artist: Tangerine Dream
P: 2008

Music produced, composed and performed by Edgar Froese except track 3 composed by Edgar Froese and Thorsten Quaeschning
FALLEN ANGELS at the strand of the innocent creatures - fallen down onto levels of space and time - accidentally some angels can be detected. Instead of heavenly beauty they are covered with dirty wings, strange faces, greasy hair and blue-shadowed lips. But their eyes reflect the strong rays of their golden soul - spread out all over the place. The future women of the planet. Strange theme, strange sounds - just TD.

Tangerine Dream - Finnegans Wake

Artist: Tangerine Dream
P: 2011   

"Finnegans Wake" is probably one of the most misinterpreted books of the last Century. Only for those who could figure out about the real background of James Joyce, the writer of this fascinating book, will find a complete different approach to the puzzled story. Joyce used different terms from about 80 different languages to explain the question which has been asked since the dawn of mankind: Who am I, where do I come from and where I’m going to. He answered that question in his very specific way.
The music Tangerine Dream comes up with to give the book an unusual dress of sounds, is not avant-garde nor is it modern with a commercial attitude, it just guides you through a different world of distinct perceptions. Give yourself a try and dive into a world of sensuous impressions – let Joyce’s story flow through your ears!

Here the last copy!

Tangerine Dream - Force Majeure

Artist: Tangerine Dream
P: 1979/ 1987   
'Force Majeure' was their big breakthrough album in 1979, their thirteenth album altogether, and second for Richard Branson's Virgin Record label. The Virgin team had already had enormous success by taking a chance and releasing Michael Oldfield's 'Tubular Bells' to Platinum sales worldwide, after all the major labels would not touch it. So Virgin and Tangerine Dream made very suitable partners. The first album released on Virgin had been the controversial 'Cyclone' album, when the Band had played more like a traditional Rock band including vocals whilst forsaking some of the sweeping synthesizers and ambient sounds, much to the despair of their fans. But it only made for a quick re-think and vocalist Steve Joliffe had left the band by the time they went back into the studio. The spacey Tangerine Dream sound was back, but better than ever, with even more adventurous effects and more structure to the songs. If songs is what you call these pieces of music. The shortest piece clocks in at seven minutes and twenty one seconds, while the opening title track is a massive eighteen and a half minutes. It opens the album in grand style, keyboards come sweeping in after the opening theme, building to a crashing climax with all instruments joining in one by one, layer upon layer, before settling down when the opening theme is reintroduced on acoustic guitar and the music takes of again at a more manageable pace. A grand piano takes you off on one of Tangerine's musical journeys into the unknown. Soon Edgar Froese's electric guitar comes into duel with the piano before jumping off at a different tangent, before being brought back into the song by the piano, allowing the keyboards to make themselves heard. So at ten minutes along you are finally into the real meat of the music. As the music takes a second to pause at the eleven minute mark, a ghost train huffs and puffs its way across your speakers, taking you into a far more sinister area of the Tangerine Dream mind, where the sounds of the mellotron, VCS3, organ, e-piano, synthesizers, and flute leave you with a feeling of being watched, whilst in the dark the sounds, emanating from the band, whisk from speaker to speaker. However, just before it gets too weird the keyboards come back in with the main theme of the song and before you know it, you are back in the musical sunshine, and all of the loose ends of the instruments tie together to bring the music to a gloriously satisfying conclusion.

Tangerine Dream - Force Majeure 1967 -2014 (Book) English Version

Artist: Edgar Froese
P:
2014 / 2017

The one and only AUTOBIOGRAPHY of TANGERINE DREAM written by EDGAR FROESE himself, more than 390 pages, authentic, sincere and free-spirited - the extraordinary adventures of a band and especially its head and founder, Edgar Froese, who were writing history together with their electronic innovations in a fossilized landscape of music in the seventies.
Edgar's narrative style in "FORCE MAJEURE" is very straightforward and uncompromising reflecting his 'storm and stress' period in the sixties. At the same time his language is humorous and picturesque - a language you are already familiar with from his musical compositions. This book is exciting from the beginning till the end even for people who don't know Edgar or Tangerine Dream. You will read quite a few never told stories as well as a straightforward correction of many rumours circulating among fans through the years. Edgar will also give credit to those people who did help the band on various levels with their creative support and warm-hearted advice. So everything will come out of one hand – an extraordinary pioneering story about the suffering and longing of someone who started just to create some progressive sounds and ended up writing history.
This autobiography does not only inform about a career of a band, but Edgar mainly provides an insight into his life, the life and work of his band, their numerous concert tours through the world, their thinking and acting, their inspirations, cooperations and conflicts. Some strange episodes with some colleagues who gave the band a hard time as well as hundreds of encounters and episodes with many interesting and well-known personalities like Salvador Dalí, David Bowie, Richard Branson, Andy Warhol, John Peel, Andy Summers, Jimi Hendrix, Oliver Stone, Jim Rakete, Stevie Nicks, Ridley Scott, Michael Mann, Brigitte Bardot etc. - just to mention a few. More than 45 years on stage and 16 years of scoring in Hollywood have offered that much content and destiny that it could have been sufficient for two lives.
Edgar had been writing this autobiography for more than seven years and invested every single minute of time for this project besides his numerous concert tours and album productions. The time has come to release it to the public and you will have the opportunity to realize this project by supporting your favorite band.

Tangerine Dream - Goblins Club

Artist: Tangerine Dream
P: 1996/ 1999   
Well, At Darwin's Motel has some lovely vocals (soloist not credited! Shame!) demonstrating once and for all and beyond all doubt should anyone still have any, that Tangerine Dream have now fully integrated the (wordless) singing voice into their sound world. And very nicely too.
On Crane's Passage features a nice mix of percussion voices, while Rising Haul in Silence ­ an inappropriate title, if ever there was one ­ could be nominated for the best drumming on the album. It also has some good sampler sounds in it and features a jolly little tune in the best Tangerine Dream tradition.
Lamb with Radar Eyes is probably the track which stands up best to repeated listening, though, with its constantly changing minimalist rhythmic patterns, classic Dream chord progressions and its mix of novel synthesizer voicing and guitar work. At over 8 and a half minutes, it's also longer than most of the other tracks, too.

Tangerine Dream - Great Wall of China (Japan Version)

Artist: Tangerine Dream
P: 2000

HiQualityCD. Tangerine Dream Eastgate Era collection vol.1
While the disc keeps the contemporary digital sound the band found in the 90s, some of the tracks will appeal to lovers of their 70s sound. For example, check out the bass sequence on The South Gate Knights. In some ways it compares to Stratosfear 1995 from their recording Tyranny of Beauty, which combined the mid-70s song structure with digital equipment and the 90s mind set.
Another example of this era mixing would be Lights of Beijing which has a lovely piano melody reminiscent of their sound of the early 80s, but again pulled into current TD style. It seems the band is proving that they have not forgotten lessons they have learned. There are more atmospheric and experimental sounds on this disc than on other recent releases.
One example is Silence of the Barking Monks with some icy crackling crystal sounds. These sounds, though perhaps odd if taken by themselves, are weaved into the layers of the music adding to the mood and depth of the disc. This CD is a soundtrack to a U. S. made film documentary about the Asian architectural wonder. The listener will find an occasional Asian vocal sample and ethnic rhythm giving sections of the music a Far East feel, but the most Oriental inspired track is Tiger Forest which has more of the tones associated with Asian music. This is not overdone, however, as is sometimes true with worldbeat recordings, and the music remains very much TD.

Here the Japan version.

Tangerine Dream - Green Desert

Artist: Tangerine Dream
P: 1973 / 2006

This album, it is claimed, was due to be Tangerine Dream's fifth release for the German record label, Ohr, in 1973. Before it could be handed over for release, though, the band signed a deal with Virgin, recorded the music for "Phaedra" at the Manor, Shipton-on-Cherwell, and the rest, as they say, is history. The original "Green Desert" tape, recorded in August 1973, was not prepared for commercial release until 1984. By the time of this release, much of the material on it had already seen the light of day incorporated into more fully worked out and developed pieces, and this album sounds like little more than sketches for later works (mostly of the "Stratosfear" era).
