On occasion of the Tangerine Dream 'Zeitraffer' exhibition at the Barbican Music Library in London, Esoteric Recordings released a cassette feturing the infamous 1974 concert at Reims Cathedral.


This is the same recording as released as part of The Official Bootleg Series Volume One. The concert had not been recorded officially, but the best available bootleg master tapes were used, pre-mastered by Wouter Bessels and digitally mastered by Ben Wiseman. The paper insert features a short essay by Wouter Bessels regarding the 1974 gig.




The recording was re-released in June 2021 on vinyl, on occasion of the Record Shop Day 2021. This limited edition was slightly renamed to Live In Reims Cathedral December 13th, 1974 and comes with a gatefold cover including a 16-page booklet with large scans and photos and an extensive essay by Wouter Bessels. Due to length limitations of the vinyl medium, both sets of the concert had to be split across two vinyl sides each. The vinyl is multi-coloured, reproducing the cathedral's stained glass windows.
