Notes

This is the second album of the so-called 'Vault' series by Tangerine Dream, featuring unaltered remastered original Tangerine Dream concerts. The series includes the following albums:

 


 


East includes the complete main set plus one encore of the one-off concert TD performed in February 1990 in East Berlin, about three months after the fall of the Berlin wall, sometimes referred to as the "Brand'n'burger Concert".

 


This was a very special show for various reasons. It was the only gig remotely supporting the studio album Lily On The Beach (1989), as the next live performances of Tangerine Dream took place in late 1990 during the UK Melrose tour. Other tracks performed were taken from Le Parc (1985), Optical Race (1988), Miracle Mile, and Destination Berlin (both 1989). Furthermore, as a novelty, TD appeared with a line-up of five musicians for the first time; in fact this was the first live appearance of both Jerome Froese and Linda Spa as part of the band (Hubert Waldner did no other live performance with TD, but he did appear as guest on Lily On The Beach and Melrose). Finally, this was the last occasion that the band would play live in a divided Berlin, roughly ten years after their famous concert in the Palast der Republik (see Pergamon and Tangerine Tree Volume 17: East Berlin 1980).

 


The album was available only through the TDI internet shop (and later from a small number of mail order companies). The first 200 customers who ordered this release received their copies autographed by Edgar Froese and Jerome Froese on the front page of the booklet; the back insert was hand-numbered. Additionally each of these 200 customers got one copy of the limited East (Bonus Disc) release, hence there are only 200 copies of the bonus disc but slightly more numbered copies of East, as some fans ordered more than one copy but got only one bonus disc. These first 200 copies were sold-out during the first 24 hours after announcement.

 


The East Zoom-O-Graphic

The cover artwork is based on the Zoom-O-Graphic Wheel of Time, a photo collage by Edgar Froese.
