Mark Jenkins book "Tangerine Dream 50 Years The Ultimate Critical Discography" is excellent. Much better in my view than Paul Stump's book from many years ago. Mark is an accomplished Musician and his knowledge of Electronic Music from both perspectives of fan and musician make for a great read. The book is especially interesting from my point of view from the Phaedra to Force Majeure years but he also gives plenty of time to all periods, including the later years. This is an essential purchase

Absolutely. But I can't help noticing the little mistakes, like writing Hoshiko Yamaha twice (rather funny) and stating that Rainbow Drive is available on CD. And that The Man Inside has LP and MC releases.

I could write a long list. But I won't. Because it's an enjoyable book.

Yes, enjoyable book. I have finished reading it. I learned many new things, but I also disagree in several of the authors statements. I spotted a few mistakes, but enjoyed the solid list of releases it covered. Many of my favourites where only covered briefly, but it was cool that he included all those grey zone (?) collections from various foreign labels etc. I collect every TD collection (at least if it is not a direct bootleg), so this was fun.
The book could have benefited from a better cover image with more professional fonts. But hopefully it will be revised in a few years, errors made straight and new releases added. Good job anyway! :-)

What did you disagree with?

Yes, the front cover is weird and has got nothing to do with TD. Should have been a collage over all the different band members up through the years. THAT had been cool.

Can't remember, but there were several things that seemed a bit strange to me. But especially that he said that Green Desert is nothing special, and that you won't miss anything if you don't have it. I thought, "Eh...what!?"
And several important releases were only covered very briefly.

Sounds like something to have in the collection! Just red your comments about the book. Interesting.
