My first experience of the tangs? I brought the Castle release 'The Collection' on cassette in 1990 and totaly hated it except 'White Clouds' at the end which I totaly loved (released on Green Desert originally me thinks?). Not a good start!!

My next recollection? I brought Optical Race on cassette the same year which I thought was totally awsome, I still have it!!! - My love of TD was confirmed when I got a copy of Force Majeure from my local library the next year!!!

:D :o


Yes Hedgehog, The Collection is one of the not so good TD compilation albums but as you say White Clouds is excellent especially as part of the album Green Desert.

Optical Race is trully incredible 8)


I remember buying Optical Race and had to wait for the local store to get a vinyl copy in. They had one copy on CD which was useless as I couldn't afford a cd player. I absolutely adore this album and it is one of only a few I don't tire of. So many diiferent moods on the record. Fave track has to be the opener Marakesh which IMO is awesome.


Always liked OR, bar the title track. TD's biggest seller in the US


any ides how many it sold ?


According to TD 150,000 copies. But I'm sure some people think I'm not telling the truth...but I just gave it ;)

In 1977 I worked near Victoria Station in London. There was a department store in Victoria Street called Army and Navy which had a Hi Fi department in the basement. I wandered down there one lunchtime and some really weird music was playing - nothing like anything I had ever heard before. I looked at the tape cassette and could just read the handwriting which said "Rubycon Tangerine Dream". A few days later I went in again and "Ricochet" was playing. Strangely they didnt actually sell music in the shop only equipment. Across the road from the store was a Harlequin Records Shop. I looked for the Tangerine Dream Section but there wasn't one so I looked under miscellaneous T but still no luck. I asked the assistant at the counter and he said they didn't have Rubycon or Ricochet. He then said we have an album by a group called "Phaedra" which had something to do with Tangerines in the title!!!!!!. I bought it and I was hooked for life !

Saw Them live at the Rainbow theatre 1974




Aaah those were the days. I was there too !

The premiere of their visual synthesizer if I remember ,with folk remarking that the visuals were distracting from the music.

Also lucky enough to be at the June 74 Victoria earlier as well, which was a totally different experience. Totally dark, never faced the audience
and the music was just food for the soul.

Think you've got a copy of the flyer I still have from then -Andy ?

Is this the show Edgar refers to on the SBE2005 DVD where Richard Branson wanted them to do something outrageous?

I believe so, I remember Branson coming on at the end, but the band just nodded approval to the audience's applause and were off. They certainly didn't comply with his wishes - not that we were aware of anyway.
Later read that the concert was attended by various celebrities including
John Peel of course and I believe Eno
