"Le Parc" is an album by Tangerine Dream, which was released in May, 1985. Each track on the album is inspired by a particular park from somewhere around the world. "Le Parc" marked Tangerine Dream's last studio release with Johannes Schmoelling; he left the band in October 1985.
In October 2000, the forthcoming TD production, i-Box, was announced on TDI's web site with the following statement: "For the first time ever, material from all four of the band's major creative periods is compiled in one box set. Tracks from the Pink Years, the Virgin Years, the Blue Years and the Melrose Years are brought together on six CDs to form a definitive overview of two decades in the oeuvre of a band that shaped the history of popular music.".
In 1992 one more compilation was released with well-known music from 'The Pink Years' and 'The Blue Years'. Although the name of the CD set is The Story Of Tangerine Dream, the booklet does not contain any story or information on the band or its history besides the track listing. This compilation contains no new material; furthermore, the music material on disc one is absolutely identical to the 1989 Compilation The Best Of Tangerine Dream - just a kind of re-commercialization.
The Dream Roots Collection is a five-disc retrospective of Tangerine Dream's career, including one disc of previously unreleased material. All of the material on the collection has been remixed and reworked by Edgar Froese and his son Jerome, and while these remixes might not be historically accurate, they nevertheless retain the essence of the original versions, making the box an intriguing journey through the group's past. While the set is too extensive for casual listeners, hardcore fans will find the new mixes and rarities fascinating, making the set a worthwhile addition to their collection.
Having re-released a large part of Tangerine Dream's back catalog in 2009, the Germany based Membran label released the box set The Electronic Journey in September 2010. It contains ten full-length albums from the Membran catalog, all repackaged in cardboard sleeves and put together in a cardboard box. Recording date 1982-2006.
Without doubt, the recordings of Tangerine Dream have made the greatest impact on the widest variety of instrumental music during the 1980s and '90s, ranging from the most atmospheric new age and space music to the harshest abrasions of electronic dance. Founded in 1967 by Edgar Froese in Berlin, the group has progressed through a full three dozen lineups (Froese being the only continuous member with staying power) and four distinct stages of development: the experimentalist minimalism of the late '60s and early '70s; stark sequencer trance during the mid- to late '70s, the group's most influential period
