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.
Tangerine Dream's 1995 studio album "Tyranny Of Beauty" follows the stylistic tradition of its predecessors. The track "Stratosfear 1995" is a new recording of the 1976 composition basing on an idea of Jerome Froese. "Largo (from Xerxes)" is a classical adaption of Georg Friedrich Händel (1685-1759).
The most surprising release of 2003 for every Tangerine Dream fan was most probably The Bootleg Box Set Vol. 1. Sanctuary Music, well known for their numerous re-releases of TD material of the Pink and the Blue Years era, had been very successful with a series of bootleg boxes by ELP and approached Tangerine Dream for the same type of thing. Since they wanted old material and were pressing to get these boxes into the pipeline as swiftly as possible, TD could not go into the process of scanning their own archives and restoring old tapes. So they chose to use readily available bootleg sources for the first two planned sets…
Quinoa is a set of rare and previously unreleased material from Tangerine Dream. "Voxel Ux" was composed for a website competition in 1996. "Quinoa" was available to fan-club members only. It was a limited-edition (1,000 copies) release in 1992. "Lhasa" is the first of seven movements in Tangerine Dream's Tibetan cycle. This CD is the classic Tangerine Dream sound with heavy sequences and dense atmospheres. Saxophone riffs are an added bonus. Tangerine Dream fans and e-music lovers will like this disc a lot.
A rather confusing package for those with a newfound interest in Tangerine Dream, The Essential Tangerine Dream might appear to be a three-in-one compilation by glancing at the front, since it lists three titles - two of which happen to be title tracks of Tangerine Dream albums - seemingly picked at random. As it is a single-disc compilation that features full-length versions of tracks by a band that thrived in the ten- to 20-minute format, the set is more like a sampler than an all-encompassing anthology designed to satisfy the curious. That said, this is an excellent sampler, one that should spark further interest in the group's deep discography.
