Ride on the Ray - The Blue Years Anthology 1980 – 1987 - Tangerine Dream

Ride on the Ray - The Blue Years Anthology 1980 – 1987
Esoteric recordings are pleased to begin their series of tangerine dream reissues with a two CD anthology covering the best of the legendary experimentalists material originally recorded between 1980 and 1987, a period referred to by fans as the blue years.

The dawn of the 1980s saw Tangerine Dream hailed as masters of ambient and experimental electronic music. Following a series of albums originally issued on the German OHR label between 1970 and 1973, Tangerine Dream became one of the first acts to sign to Virgin records. With Virgin the group enjoyed huge international success, something which would continue upon them leaving Virgin in 1983. Signing to the British Jive Electro label, Tangerine Dream issued a series of recordings which saw them adapt their style to a new era including such legendary albums as Poland, Underwater Sunlight, Tyger and Live Miles.

This anthology gathers the highlights of this period in the life of the group and adds additional material from the Pergamon concert in 1980 and two tracks from a concert in Sydney in 1982.

It’s Five O’Clock
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce that the reissues of the Aphrodite’s Child albums "End of the World" and "It’s Five O’Clock" will now be remastered under the supervision of Vangelis himself. The Maestro will also supervise the entire artwork package of both albums. We at Esoteric are honoured to have Vangelis’ involvement, making our reissues of these classic titles the first CD editions to be endorsed by the Maestro. As release dates were set before Vangelis’ involvement in these projects, we have postponed further shipping of these titles for approximately four to five weeks until Vangelis’ remastered versions are completed and ready for shipment and distribution, when they will become the official versions of these classic albums. Further news will be posted as soon as we have it. It's Five O'clock by Greek Psych / Prog legends Aphrodite's Child. Formed in 1967 by keyboard player Vangelis, the band also featured Demisroussos on bass and vocals and Lucas Sideras on Drums. Their classic second album was released in 1969 and featured the international hit from which the album took its name. The LP revealed a more experimental side to the band s nature with such Psychedelic gems as Funky Mary and Let Me Love, Let Me Live. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re-mastered from the original tapes and includes six bonus tracks which were released as three singles in 1969 and 1970, including a rare Italian only release.

Sunrise in the Third System - The Pink Years Anthology 1970 – 1973
Esoteric recordings are pleased to begin their series of Tangerine Dream reissues with a two CD anthology covering the best of the legendary experimentalists material originally released in Germany on the OHR label between 1970 and 1973.

Tangerine dream was formed in Berlin in September 1967 by Edgar Froese. Froese had been a member of German beat group The Ones since 1965 and had played guitar for the band on live dates in Germany, France and Spain. In 1967 with the birth of psychedelia, Froese steered the ones in this new direction, releasing the single Lady Greengrass that year.

However, a desire to explore new musical directions led to Edgar forming the first line-up of Tangerine Dream later that year. He had met surrealist artist Salvador Dali whilst in Spain with the ones and wanted to take music down a similar route as Dali had done with his art. Influenced by bands such as Pink Floyd, the early Tangerine Dream was a band based on extended psychedelic improvisations backed by a liquid light show. By 1969 the line-up had stabilised to include Froese, Klaus Schulze on drums and Conrad Schnitzler on cello, electronics sounds and violin. After a performance at the 1969 Essen festival, the trio came under the wing of electronic music composer Thomas Kessler and were guided by his influence to head into a more avant-garde direction. A recording session at Mixed Media Studios in Berlin in October 1969 produced the band s debut album Electronic Meditation. The tapes came to the attention of Ralf Ulrich Kaiser, who was in the throes of launching an underground label, OHR records. Impressed with what he had heard, Kaiser signed Tangerine Dream to his label and released Electronic Meditation in June 1970. Following the release of the album both Schnitzler and Schulze departed the band leaving Froese to assemble a new line up of the band with Chris Franke and Steve Schroyder. Now almost entirely keyboard based, Tangerine Dream developed a sound based on the use of synthesisers and the Farfisa organ, first revealed on their marvellous Alpha Centuari album in 1971.

In Britain, DJ John Peel soon began to promote the band on his influential radio show and the album, along with follow ups Atem and Zeit sold in healthy quantities in Britain as imported titles. In 1973 Tangerine Dream recorded the album Green Desert (not released until many years later) and became one of the first acts to sign to Richard Branson s newly established Virgin label. Tangerine Dream s early recordings (later referred to by fans as the pink years ), would serve as an influence to a whole host of later musicians such as Julian Cope, and this anthology gathers the highlights of this period in the life of the group.
