Tangerine Dream – The Sessions II (2020 Reissue Double-LP on 140g Purple Vinyl)
The Sessions II contains live compositions (about 95 min of music) from the current Tangerine Dream line-up of Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane recorded at the Saturday and Sunday concerts at the E-Live Festival in Oirschot, the Netherlands in October 2017. Tangerine Dream are very much enjoying their new respectively revived concept of performing an improvised session at the end of their concerts. We hope that you will enjoy these spontaneous and exceptional live tracks – inspired by the location and a great audience – as well.
In their imperial years of the 1970s, Tangerine Dream's live concerts were an electronic exploration, improvised and different every night, with little or no relationship to their smash hit albums, which were similarly esoteric. As the 1980s dawned, their recorded work contained more recognisable themes and they scored some of the biggest films of the decade (Risky Business, Firestarter, Near Dark, Thief, Sorcerer).
Now, they are returning in part to those pioneering days, and every show includes a section of improvisation, different every night. The best improvisations are being released as Sessions. An important band at the peak of their powers and a treat for fans of electronic music.
