The German 3 LP set Ossiach Live was the first record featuring various artists that included a track by Tangerine Dream: Oszillator Planet Concert. This very first official live recording of Tangerine Dream was not released on any regular TD record until the 2011 re-release of Alpha Centauri. For this reason this extremely rare sampler is included in this discography.


The Tangerine Dream line-up in the track list features Peter Baumann with his full name: Hans Peter Baumann.




In 1994 the material of all three LPs was released on a double CD on the Italian grey market with a cover artwork very similar to the original release. However, the CD set is regarded as a bootleg because of different copyright laws in Germany. Unfortunately, the sound quality is not the best one because the music material obviously was transferred from vinyl to compact disc. Another grey market release was issued in 2008 by a Swiss label.
