This is the second album of the 'Five Atomic Seasons' cycle by Tangerine Dream that includes the following albums:



The Eastgate Music Shop about the CD release"Summer In Nagasaki is the second part of the so-called "Five Atomic Seasons". The compositions reflect the experiences Mr. H.T. -- an 82 year old Japanese business man -- made during the time of the atomic bomb dropping in summer 1945 in Japan. This dramatic incident coincided with the relationship to his early love -- his student fellow named Ayumi -- who had no chance to survive that horrible attack. H.T. was so heavily shocked that he decided to abandon the world by going into a monastery. The music -- written as one long track of 54 minutes -- dramatically describes a part of his life and destiny."


Regarding the initial Eastgate CD release, neither CD nor the paper inserts show any order number or barcode, but the number given below is the order number the Eastgate Music Shop lists this release.


In October 2007 this release became available as MP3 download at the Tangerine Dream Download Shop.


In March 2009 the album was re-released with different cover design as part of an extensive digipack series (consisting of a total of more than 60 CD and DVD releases) by the Germany based Membran record label, and in May 2009 it was re-released in Japan as part of a series of HiQualityCDs with mini LP paper sleeves.


Furthermore, the album was released as double vinyl album with completely different cover artwork in summer 2009, together with Views From A Red Train and Autumn In Hiroshima.
