Tangerine Tree Volume 23: Berlin 1973 presents Tangerine Dream's concert at the Deutschlandhalle in Berlin, that took place on November 29th, 1973. A few days later the band went into studio to record Phaedra, the album which earned TD widespread recognition as pioneers of electronic music. However, the music performed at this concert has little to do with their breakthrough album, and is much more reminiscent of earlier recordings auch as Alpha Centauri (1971), Zeit (1972) or Atem (1973).


Nonetheless, it is another fascinating concert which shows the improvisational skills of the Froese/Franke/Baumann line-up, and their urge to explore new musical territories. This recording was broadcast by the German RIAS Radio station and is an important document of the early years of Tangerine Dream, especially as few unreleased recordings still exist from that era.


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


This album has been officially re-released as bonus disk of the 2011 re-release of Atem.


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.
