Notes

The 1988 album Livemiles was the last one appearing on the Jive Electro label -- the 'Blue Years' had ended. Another change was the departure of Chris Franke, leaving TD after 16 years immediately after the open air concert in Berlin on August 1st, 1987.

 


Only a 27 minute long remixed excerpt of this concert is featured on this album as Livemiles, Part Two, while the full length concert of more than two hours was made available on the fan release Tangerine Tree Volume 38: Berlin 1987, taken from a radio broadcast.

 


The composition Livemiles, Part One is alleged to be a live performance in Albuquerque from June 1986. Fan tapes prove that this is not true: None of the material featured on this record was performed at that time and place. It seems to be a pure studio production, though a part of it was played live during the US tour in 1988 (months after release of the album Livemiles). An original version of the material performed live during the 1986 US tour can be heard on Vault IV, though it comes from the venue at Cleveland, about two weeks after the gig of Albuquerque.

 


In 1996 the album was re-released on CD with a totally new cover artwork and the title slightly changed to Live Miles. The two tracks were retitled Livemiles I (Albuquerque Concert) and Livemiles II (Berlin Concert)

 


In March 2012 the album was re-released by Esoteric Records on their Reactive label as part of a partial re-issue of the TD back catalog. The album was completely remastered and comes with a nice 16-page booklet including numerous photos from 1986/87 plus an essay written by journalist Malcolm Dome. Unlike most of the albums of this re-release series, Livemiles comes without any bonus track. This version features two different versions of cover artwork: the cardboard wrapper shows the photo by Monika Froese that was used first in 1996; the booklet has a unique cover, being a variation of the initial artwork from 1988.
