:D Only played the first track so far, but I like it very much. Edgar & Thorsten recorded it in 2007. Look forward to listening to the others soon. :D

The track listing is for the full album that the first 500 persons who preordered the book will receive (and also can be bought separately), the rest will get the EP.

The EP contains track 1 - 3.

I only listened to the album once (received it yesterday with THE book) and I find it great already ! 8)
The 6 tracks are very different and make a wonderful hour of music...

One of the things I always found slightly odd is that in all the years since Thorsten joined the band, he and Edgar were so rarely credited as actual co-writers on any track, be it album or Cup Disc. It was either one, or the other.

And hearing LIGHT FLUX, I think.......WHY OH WHY!?!!!

GREEN SUMMER CLOUDS is a brilliant 70's style, yet contemporary work-out between them both, recorded all the way back in 2007, so they were definitely hard at it! Similarly REACHING RAVENNA, yet barely any of this co-written stuff made it to any albums in that initial period nor beyond. What a shame....as it's bloody marvellous, and great to hear it now.

Edgar's own compositions METEOR and NEMESIS are a salient reminder of how good and how varied his sound design and melodics were back in the 70's and 80's. I must confess though to grinding my teeth and near tearing out my hair.....as NEMESIS ends, but doesn't continue into the live track that followed on the UK 1981 tour, which, imo, is the best track TD have never officially put out.

LOGOS 2014 is another render of a classic, this time with an off-set percussion element which makes it as sweet as pie.

This is a really lovely bonus CD to accompany the book, which, along with Thorsten + Ulrich's SYNTHWAVES, QUANTUM GATE and THE SESSIONS vol. 01, makes TD's 50th anniversary year not just a landmark historically, but musically too.

I live in hope of LIGHT FLUX II, and everything the band do from this point on.

I totally agree. Both tracks are absolutely brilliant. I don't understand, why they have not been released before. The other tracks of Light Flux are also excellent, especially Nemesis. I like this release better than Quantum Gate, to be honest.
