[The Zest] Interesting article on Phaedra from Melody Maker, April 6, 1974

[as I'm in a good mood ;)] on this day in 1974: Complete Steve Lake article from MELODY MAKER: "Tangerine Dream and James Last – the former the latest German export to the LP charts, the latter an indefatigable hit maker. MM profiles two sides of ‘kraut-rock’.
 
A funny thing happened in the album charts last week. Tangerine Dream’s fifth album “Phaedra”, slid in at number 28, their first album on an English label. Yet for those that have had faith in the band it comes as no surprise.
 
As imports, Tangerine Dream have outsold every other foreign artist in the past twelve months, be they American or otherwise. And John Peel seems to be perpetually claiming that he’s had more mail about Tangerine Dream than about any other band and “that must mean something”. Indeed it must, although Mr Peel doesn’t specify whether response was favourable or hostile. Let us presume the former is the case.
 
Tangerine Dream’s history reads like a B-movie script. It’s all the brain child of Edgar Froese, a failed heavy rock guitarist who saw the light after repeated exposure to the music of Ligeti and the Pink Floyd. The Dream began as an r’n’b band, but underwent a shaky metamorphosis in Berlin around 1968, not an uncommon occurrence among the rock bands of the period, most of whom borrowed images from Anglo/ American outfits and were struggling to find their own identity.
 
Froese explains it thus: “You are a child of the last ten thousand centauries – you have the influence from them, but you transform it is a possibility of the next ten thousand centauries. It’s important to do this. “I found out that the honest way for myself could be a mixture of all the possibilities of music, and so we’ve tried to find a way from classicals like Wagner, Beethoven, Liszt and Debussy through rock with the Beatles, Stones, King Crimson and Pink Floyd and to Penderecki, Stockhausen and Ligeti.”
 
An impressive scheme of things. How successful a mix is achieved is largely a question of taste. If you’re into Penderecki’s music. For example are you going to want to hear any approximation by an inferior composer? Clearly a large number of people do. Edgar Froese seem to place Tangerine Dream’s music even above that of his primary influences. He comes down hard on serious composers working in the electronic field for example. “Before we recorded ‘Zeit’ (the group’s third album) we were in contact with some electronic composers. Before this I thought something abstract would be the future of our music. “but on meeting those composers I realised that abstract things were not suitable, as I don’t want to lose the emotions, and mostly in electronic compositions, the emotional side is very low – just clinical exercises.
 
“I thought about this a lot, and it brought me down, in Tangerine Dream we aim to fuse electronics into the normal way of playing instruments. Electronics can be part of the music, and not just trivial effects. “In our way of making music, the classical scene is the most influential…we try to find a transport for classical feeling. When you listen to composers like Franz Liszt and Claude Debussy, you find so much emotion. And we try to transport this thing of the last century into this century.
 
With a scene as loose and low energy as the mid/late sixties German one, interchanging of musicians amongst the band was not uncommon. In was not until 1972 (five years after the formation of the group) that the personnel became stable, as a trio, with Christopher Franke himself was a refugee from another Berlin based band Agitation Free, with whom he’d been playing since age 14 (He’s only 21 now). Martin Cole at Virgin Agency has a ripe dream presenting Tangerine Dream in comfortable concert settings with individual stereo headphones for each member of the audience, but that’s still very much in the air. “Phaedra” continues to sell at a faster rate than any Virgin Records album since “Tubular Bells. “
 
And it’s actually reasonable to draw an analogy between Oldfield’s epic and the Dream’s “Phaedra.” Neither record is half as revolutionary or trailblazing as it’s cracked up to be. Both serve a kind of neo-avant garde MOR function, suitable maybe to act as a painless way of getting Hawkwind freaks into Terry Riley. As far as I’m concerned “Phaedra” is gutless and spineless, devoid of inspiration, imagination or plain old-fashioned funk. But maybe a few hundred thousand potential record buyers can’t be wrong”

1. Message from Bianca, Thorsten, Ulrich & Hoshiko
 
Hi everyone,
 
It's still not easy to address some words to you as we all do miss Edgar immensely.....
But we think we owe you an explanation why we have decided to continue working together despite the painful loss of Edgar.
 
On numerous occasions over the past months Edgar explained his vision for what was to become the first album of the 'Quantum Years'. Some of the changes he suggested were rather radical ones, others more aiming towards an evolutionary progression of what's been there already.
 
As a consequence we (Edgar, Thorsten and Ulrich) had already begun working on material for this project - the initial plan was to get together at some point during the first half of this year and to create a joint record on the basis of those ideas.
It'll be the greatest challenge since we started making music to finish this project without Edgar's physical presence but due to the instructions he has already given us and the sketches he recorded, we feel that we should at least try to realize Edgar's vision.
 
We assure you that we'll do our best to produce a result that is as close as possible to what he would've wanted it to be.
We're also grateful that Peter Baumann (ex-member of TD) has agreed to support us with this project - he'll even be present during the 2nd half of a longer recording session that's currently been scheduled for this April.
 
Again, we're fully aware of the extreme challenge that this task represents - but we're also hoping that we'll manage to come up with a result that will satisfy Edgar - and you.
 
________________________________
 
2. Edgar's Autobiography
 
As we already told you in our last newsletter Bianca, Edgar's wife, took over the book project of her husband now and will finish his work during the next months, so there is a mountain of work ahead.... Thanks very much in advance for your kind understanding that she will need time to put together this important book. In any case she plans to release it in 2015.
 
At the same time she would like to ask some fans who shot nice pics from Edgar and the band - especially during the 70ies and 80ies - if they would be prepared to make them available for the book, of course those fans would be credited in the book in case we would use their pics. Please just send a mail to eastgate-book <at> gmx.com - many thanks in advance for your support.
 
________________________________
 
3. New Releases
 
Of course we are working on a special tribute album as mentioned above, but before we would like to release the London concert of 2014 (Phaedra Farewell Tour) as Blu-ray. This concert was one of the first concerts on the Farewell tour last May and many British fans as well as fans from all over the world enjoyed this special concert at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire very much. We hope to finish this film project by the end of this month and release it by mid May of this year.
 
In the last weeks many of you asked for Edgar's solo album "ORANGE LIGHT YEARS" (double CD, compilation) which was out of stock for some time and we like to inform you that this CD will be in stock again from 22nd April on - including a new reworked mastering.
 
 
______________________________
 
4. TDOC Club
 
We definitely would like to continue with the TDOC Club and thank all members for your patience over the last weeks. There will be a considerable update by the end of this month including a new raffle as well.
If you have some interesting ideas for the club or special TD related input we would be happy to collect all ideas and gems and possibly release them in our club. Please mail to eastgate-tdoc <at> gmx.com, if you like to contribute something - thank you.
 
______________________________
 
5. SCHALLWELLE AWARD for EDGAR FROESE's lifetime achievement & more...

Christopher Franke has announced that he will be releasing previously unavailable Tangerine Dream material

     I really hope that this isn't a hoax!

     And, might I add, this adds to the possibilities of a -- 
dare I say it? -- (Jerome) Froese, Baumann, Franke, and
Schmoelling supergroup finding its way into reality one 
day.  ;)

Can someone provide us a feedback/review on the last Japanese remastered reissues on CD or SACD (Phaedra, Rubicon, Ricochet and Stratosfear)? How do they really compared to the 90's remasters? T

Re: Inferno (was Metropolis by TD?)



I have an Inferno DVD with TD music (Inferno, not surprisingly). Seems to have been released in 2004/2005. No mention of Orange records, though. This is Recall DVD, via Snappermusic.

Most of the tracks are from either Ages (the re-recorded version) or Three O’Clock High as far as I can make out.

All the track titles are made up.
Some of the tracks used are split into 2 titles on the disc (so for example tracks 8 & 9 on the CD cover is actually one track, with a track-split marker somewhere)

I do have this disc (bought from the same ebayer as in the listing on the previous post)

Interestingly (or not)  there is a picture on the inside of the case showing ANOTHER Orange records TD release ...  “Inferno-Music for the Silent Classic”

I’ve not tracked this one down yet...possible it’s not been released.

Anyone that wants an MP3 link I can arrange it...TD will get nothing from these Orange Records releases so I have no problem in providing
MP3 files to anyone that wants them.
