28. band introductions / Edgar Froese talks
The Electric Mandarine tour.
This was my third time seeing Tangerine Dream and the band's first time performing in Santa Barbara. Unfortunately, I think their 20 year absence
from touring North America has made people forget how amazing this group is live since I have read that the American shows have not had the greatest
of turnouts. Santa Barbara was no exception and I'm extremely thankful that the band did not cancel this show. I'm also happy that the venue didn't
close off the balcony and force everyone onto the floor section. Despite the low turnout, I thoroughly enjoyed this nearly 3 hour show and I hope
they return to SB (Froese even mentioned at the end of the show how much he liked the town).
I was seated on an aisle, so there is some minor phasing as people would walk by (the only time it's really noticeable is during "Loved By The Sun").
After the set break, it took a little while for people to get quiet, so there's some brief audience noise and a man laughing during the beginning of
"Ricochet." And at the very end of "Horizon," my mom closed her Altoids container, but it's barely audible (I'm only mentioning it in case you wonder
what that click sound is). There was also a volume drop in the PA during the soft middle bit of "Stratosfear 95" and then it was raised when the full
band kicked in.
During the first set, the PA kept getting louder and louder. My recording never peaked, but it looked like it was going to, so I lowered my preamp's
trim between sets. I only had to amplify the second set, but it still might sound kind of low, so be sure to turn that part up. I did nothing else
to the recording. And if burning to cd, I would suggest beginning the second cd with "One Night In Space" and beginning the third cd with "Warsaw In
The Granada has an anti-photo policy, so I'm sorry I could not include any photos other than of the venue and some very bad ones taken between sets and
during the band introductions.
Thank you to tadreamer62 for the setlist and tracking help. Thanks to P. Bourgeois for allowing me to use the photos he took of the meet and greet and
of a shop window featuring posters advertising the show. And thank you to Guy Guden's Space Pirate Radio, who in January 1974 in the very same Granada
building, introduced Tangerine Dream to commercial radio.
Please support the artist by buying their official releases and merch. And go see them live!
