Tangerine Dream

Aug 16 1975
Theatre Antique Orange, France

Tangerine Tree - Volume 22 - Orange 1975

"Despite the over-modulation that is present during parts of this audience recording,
this is surely one of the most fascinating documents of the Froese / Franke / Baumann
era that still remains unreleased officially.

Tangerine Dream were performing in a huge ancient Roman theatre built in the late
1st century BC, with a seating capacy of almost five thousand. It must have been an
inspiring venue, as the music itself is quite unlike anything heard before or since.
Although the first few minutes are in no way different than the other performances of
the time, the slow and atmospheric mood quickly changes into what can best be
described as 'dangerous'.

A couple of seconds later and suddenly all hell breaks loose; never have the sequencers
been as fast or aggresive than on this awesome recording, and all three of them perform
a completely stunning electronic masterpiece which separates the countless imitators
from the original that is Tangerine Dream."
