On July 18th, 2008 Tangerine Dream performed an open air concert as part of the "Night Of The Prog Festival" at the Loreley Rock at the river Rhine in Germany. On this occasion, they released Das Romantische Opfer, a limited edition containing just one single composition of some 14 minutes running time. This release is the first of a series of so-called 'mini cupdiscs'.


It is one of the rare occasions that TD used a title in their native German language. Roughly translated into English the cover states: "The Romantic Offering -- metro madrigal for the useless of all times". The backside shows the famous ode "Lore-ley" by German poet Heinrich Heine (1824).


The Eastgate Music Shop about the CD release"The song of a siren in her absolute beauty is nothing a ferryman needs in his lonelyness. Misguided by her strange voice he stranded between the cliffs of the river Rhine. He died with a smile on his face looking up to the surreal landscape of the Loreley -- dream of a dream within a dream."


In September 2008 this release became available as MP3 download at the Tangerine Dream Download Shop as well.
