Tangerine Dream

Sessions 1

In their crucial 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) and the live show became more regimented.

Now, they are returning in part to those pioneering days, and every show includes a half-hour section of improvisation, different every night, with an ecstatic reac on from fans. The best improvisations are being released as Sessions, and Invisible Hands Music are releasing the first one on vinyl, with side one recorded live in Budapest and side two in Hong Kong.
