Tangerine Tree Volume 22: Orange 1975 presents another unique TD gig from the mid-seventies. Despite the overmodulation that is present during parts of this audience recording, the concert at the Orange Theatre Antique, August 16th, 1975 is surely one of the most fascinating documents of the Froese/Franke/Baumann era that still remains unreleased officially.


Tangerine Dream were performing in a huge ancient Roman theatre built in the late 1st century BC, with a seating capacity of almost 5,000 people. It must have been an inspiring venue, as the music itself is quite unlike anything heard before or since. Although the first few minutes are in no way different than the other performances of the time, the slow and atmospheric mood quickly changes into what can best be described as 'dangerous'. A couple of seconds later and suddenly all hell breaks loose; never have Chris Franke's sequencers been as fast or aggressive as on this awesome recording, and all three of them perform a completely stunning electronic masterpiece which seperates the countless imitators from the original that is Tangerine Dream.


For other concerts released as part of this fan project, please refer to the Chronological Concert Listing.


As with all releases of the Tangerine Tree project, this release is made by fans for fans. It must not be sold but is to be traded freely.
