From mid October to late November 1982, TD toured in Europe performing 31 gigs at all in Austria, Hungary, Yugoslavia, the UK, Belgium, West and East Germany. The concert at the Dominion Theatre in London was released only a few weeks after on the record Logos Live. According to Johannes Schmoelling, this is one of his favourite albums. He considers "the live concept and the smooth transition between one idea and the next to be the key of the album's success." In 1995 Virgin re-released the album on CD in the so-called "Definitive Edition" series, featuring the original front cover artwork. For this release, the two compositions Logos, Part One and Logos, Part Two have been mixed together, forming the track Logos of some 45 minutes length.

Live Miles consists of two parts, which were both recorded live. "Livemiles I" was recorded during the American tour of 1986, while "Livemiles II" was captured at a concert to commemorate the 750th anniversary of Berlin. As usual with TD, the audience had no clue of what they were going to experience while attending one of those concerts. During that era it was rather common for TD to improvise much of the music on the spot. So when you listen to a live record of TD you mostly hear new music that isn't available as a studio version. The extended pieces displayed on Live Miles cover many musical moods and textures throughout the playing time of almost half an hour: from slow and haunting, through up-tempo and uplifting; from driving and percussive, to grand and majestic. It's all present on both tracks!

"Booster" comes as a double CD and contains some real goodies from the alchymical soundboard of TD. There are two brand-new compositions and some tracks which aren't available on various EP's anymore. Of course you will hear music you've probably heard before. But for some of you it will become a collector's item as a pack of tracks which definitely will become 'classics' out of the first decade of the new musical Century.

Optical Race is one of Tangerine Dream's most accessible releases. The melodies and hooks are as strong as on any Dream production, and are complemented by the electronic washes of sound. Pared down to the duo of founder and visionary Edward Froese and fellow synth wizard Paul Haslinger, the music is complete yet questioning, the hallmark of all the best Tangerine Dream recordings. Stylistically it straddles the ground between the preceding Underwater Sunlight and the earlier Tangram. Optical Race also marked a reunion of sorts with former Dreamer Peter Baumann, then head of the Private Music label, which for a time became known for its edgy, electronic music by the likes of Yanni, Azuma, Eddie Jobson, and Tangerine Dream…

For many years Tangerine Dream have been very much into the soundtrack business, and most of them have been released on CDs. In early 1996 appeared one of their probably most surprising releases. Zoning is a German thriller produced 1986/87, which could be seen on TV screen for a few times only and then disappeared. Without any information before, it had been re-released in the video format nearly ten years later, accompanied by a soundtrack CD with the music of TD used for this video. Edgar Froese had recorded and mixed the whole score in 1994, eight years after TD produced the first version of this soundtrack…

Despite being credited to both Edgar Froese and Jerome Froese, in fact only the final track of the disc carries anything of Edgar's fingerprints, being an alternate mix of his own composition Mombasa, originally released just a few months ago on Booster III (2009). All of the other remixes on DM V are solely the result of Jerome's work on classic TD material from the seventies and eighties, all of which have the original music more or less discernible at some point within them. The most deeply buried of the originals is the brief inclusion of a snatch of Rubycon (1975) as an inner layer to The Return of Time, largely swallowed by a newly minted percussion pulse and swathe of electronic textures…

Another old TD soundtrack had been made available on CD in 1994. The story of the US film, directed by Stephen Sommers in 1989, does not seem very extraordinary: it deals with the well known subject of man and woman, cars and money… As stated on the CD insert, this album was prepared without the musical authorisation of TD. This resulted in a large number of very short music tracks.

The Hollywood Years Vol. 2 is the second (and last) issue of 'The Hollywood Years' series, intended to feature "TD's leftover scores, songs and sequences". The material on this CD consists of previously unreleased material with the exceptions of "City Monk", that is featured as Ulan-Ude on the soundtrack album Transsiberia, and "Token From Birdland" which appears in a heavily remixed version under the same title on Ambient Monkeys. The track "Riding The Lizard Overland" is actually the end titles of the film Red Heat from 1986. The soundtrack of this film has never been released, though in summer 1997 TD had announced to release it in early 1998 on their own TDI label…
