Tangerine Dreams' miscellaneous works



I've chosen Top 10+ albums they released over the course of 1976-1997,

As you can call it the main era of their successful movie scoring career:


1- Stratosfear 1976: First real conventional music album by the band leaving their

     Long Experimentation period of 9 years, this album hunts any audience having an

     Artistic vision by its strong rhythmic, melodic & ambient sounds.

     It's a prologue to Sorcerer!


2- Force Majeure 1979: The group leaps further through realms of semi-orchestral

    Prog-rock here by even more clear & impressing percussive patterns & great

    Stylistic Hard-rock guitar work by founder Edgar Froese. (Basis 4 Thief)


3- Tangram 1980: Here you see they keep up previous album's style, re-done by Epic

     Approach, Tangram Set 1 is the basis 4 at least one gorgeous show in East Berlin

     The same year and like #2 is featured on films like Risky Business & Wavelength.

   

4- Exit 1981: This is a totally revolutionary step by the band shifting their style to

     New Age & Dance music way ahead of their time & by numerous colorful short songs.

     This one magically proves modern as u can hear these patterns even in today’s Disco!


5- Logos 1982: Performed live on a World Tour, It's a giant step back to the heart of 

     Their early minimalist era but this time with a dark horror film score style. No wonder

      It’s used untouched in Michael Mann's 2nd film, A Gothic WWII Nazis Horror, The Keep.


6- Le Parc 1985: The Tanges are back 2 New Age, dedicating each of this album's tracks

     To a particular famous park in main countries they toured, There's also a title song 

     Which is used as main theme of a short lived US TV Series, Street Hawk.


7- Underwater Sunlight 1986: To many fans & critics, this is the best & most matured

     Album, Tangerine Dream has made to this day, It starts epic moody, turns 2 Prog-rock,

     Marches through 2 joyful Dance & Rock songs & ends by 2 percussive musical odes.


8- Tyger 1987: A newly found interest 2 do songs with lyrics & despite one failed try

    On Cyclone 1978 this one is the last TD album to appear on UK's Top Music Charts,

    Combining Genres: Classic, Jazz & Rock 2 present a full pack of musical adventure.

    This album is the basis 4 Shy People.


9- Melrose 1990: Continuing their famous late 80's transition 2 Pop/Rock albums, It's the

    Peak of this movement, featuring a title song which they made 4 their first official

    Music-Video showing band members riding bikes in desert & acting in short movies!


10- 220 Volt 1993: This is the name of a North American Tour album & its documentary

       Which summarizes band's 25 years legacy in a new interactive approach 2 audience,

       This works earned them the 3 of their 7 Grammy Award Nominations.


=======================================================================


Tangerine Dream Awards:


Four Remaining Grammy Nominations:


1- Canyon Dreams 1987: First Grammy Nomination goes to a musical documentary

     About The Grand Canyon, The music mood here feels Native Southwest America,

     Showing breath-taking scenery from this ancient natural phenomenon.

3- Turn of the Tides 1994: Orchestral New Age featuring electric guitar, a full-fledged

FS: TD vinyl record albums



I’m trying to clear out some closet space and found the following Tangerine Dream albums:
 
  • Hyperborea (Virgin records, #V2292)
  • Cyclone  (Jem records; small “cut-out” on album cover near top right side)
  • Pergamon – Live at the Palast der Republik GDR (Caroline Records)
  • Underwater Sunlight (German import on Jive Electro records)
  • Sorcerer soundtrack (MCA Records)
  • Le Parc (German import on Jive Electro records)
  • White Eagle (German import on Virgin records)
 
All albums are in excellent condition and the album covers have no scuffs or scratches (other than the small 1 cm “cut-out” on the Cyclone one).  All albums are in clear protectors.   These have been not played for at least 10 years... and most may only have been played once or twice by me (because I recorded them on cassette tapes...).
 
I’m trying not to deal with ebay for selling these.   In researching ebay though, I saw a record store sell the same used Cyclone album for $29.95 (or best offer) + $4.00 shipping; others range from $8.52 to $20.00....  so it’s hard to say what the true “market value” of these is...  Prices seem to range all over the place.
 
Shipping is another issue; while vinyl albums aren’t that heavy, they are bulky and need lots of packaging to keep them from getting messed up by the postal service, and since the USPS charges not just by weight, but also by “size”, it could be somewhat expensive per item (presumably “media mail” could be used to keep postage prices reasonable).
 
In any case, I figured subscribers in this group might have an interest in these and that I’d offer them here first....  I would like to find a good home for these!
 
Regards,
Peter
 
On a side-note, I also found a Jean Michel Jarre 45 rpm single record for “Rendevous” (featuring “4th” and “1st” Rendevous on Polydor records) with a nice full-cover sleeve

"Ivory.mp3" ??



I have a track in my downloads folder that just says "Ivory.mp3" ... no other information is in the file at all. It sounds like slow piano playing from old TD, but I think it might actually be PPM or some similar project because certain sections have choirs just like what Thorsten used in Purple Diluvial. The track is 8:27 long and is really pretty sounding, especially when the choir sounds come in.

Any ideas what this may be? Should I upload it somewhere for you guys to hear it?

Warsaw 1983



Yesterday I found myself listening to this work of genuius again. It has been a favourite album of mine since I first heard it over 10 years ago. I have listened to the album several times but every time I notice tiny little details that I had not noticed before. Poland to me contains everything that was good and is good about TD.

Anyway I also listened to the "dreaming on ice stadium" bootleg that a member kindly gave me some years ago. I wanted to ask if there has been a remastered or upgraded version of this bootleg that has surfaced? also has any new details come to light about Poland? was it 100 studio or was the music taken from another Polish show?


Regards
Rob

TT 69 + 87



Would anyone mind uploading a .flac or .wav copy of volumes 69 and 87 for me? Forwarding a dropbox private link might be easiest I think.

Many Thanks,
Trev

Fangoria and The Keep



This recently came through on Fangoria magazine's Facebook feed:

Twisted Trivia: Despite its cult following, THE KEEP (1983) has never been released on DVD or Blu-ray. This is mainly because Tangerine Dream, hired by Michael Mann personally, agreed to score the film as long as they kept the rights to their music, and distributor Paramount Pictures would have to buy them back for every new media platform release.


I wonder if this is true, because if they did own the rights to the music, they would have issued the soundtrack decades ago, and it would have had the actual movie music on it.


Returning to lurkerdom,


Scott
