Booster III, released in December 2009 is the third installment of a successful series of compilations featuring a number of tracks that already have released in recent time plus some completely new compositions or previously unreleased remixes. This series includes the following albums:



The Eastgate Music Shop about the CD release"The Booster series supposed to be a musical side reflection -- a hidden TD landmark not aimed for a TD mainstream success. But sometimes things were turned upside down. The whole cupdisc idea which now became a short note musical diary format plus some extras released on the two previous Booster volumes provoked such an enthusiastic reaction that you will have the chance now to experience the third part of this series. It will follow the same philosophy like you know it from Booster I and II. Some tracks you will be familiar with, others are completely fresh from the recording desk here in Vienna. It truly will become one of your most enjoyable travel companion in your car, on your I-pod, mobile or whatever you prefer storing a piece of timeless music on. [...]
PS: Booster Vol. III contains 7 so far unreleased tracks: totally new ones or re-recorded or re-mixed ones -- just open your ears for some new sounds!"


With the release of Booster III Tangerine Dream returned to the usage of gold-foil colour for printing parts of the cover artwork -- a style they introduced with the foundation of their TDI label in 1997 und used up to 2003.


Besides the handful of previously unreleased tracks this compilation contains tracks originally released on the following CDs:
