2016 four CD live archive release. Esoteric Recordings' Reactive label is proud to announce the release of the second volume of an official bootleg series by the legendary Tangerine Dream. This set includes a 1978 Paris concert as well as a 1980 show taped in East Berlin. Formed in Berlin in September 1967 by Edgar Froese, Tangerine Dream are simply one of the most important groups to have emerged on the German music scene of the late 1960s/early 1970s. Always guided by the genius of Edgar Froese, Tangerine Dream developed a sound based on the use of synthesizers and keyboards. In Britain, John Peel soon began to promote the band on his influential radio show which ultimately led to Tangerine Dream becoming one of the first acts to sign to Richard Branson's newly established Virgin label in 1973. Tangerine Dream's music would influence a whole host of musicians who followed in their wake, such as Julian Cope.
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.".
