|In 1980 Virgin released a four-album box set entitled '70-'80 to celebrate the first decade of recording activity by Tangerine Dream. The box contains material of the albums listed below:|
One vinyl side features previously unreleased solo material by Edgar Froese, Chris Franke and Peter Baumann, respectively, and there is a remix of the track Monolight, unavailable elsewhere. Furthermore most boxes contained a LP sized 28-page booklet with a discography, a biography and many photographs of the band. This compilation was to become the first in a long line of compilations and samplers showing the name Tangerine Dream on the cover. In recent years many compilations have been put out by various record companies, in most cases only reissuing well-known material without anything new.
This box has never been released in CD format.
