"Dedicated to the memory of Edgar Froese --
A fine and much missed musician"


The Official Bootleg Series Volume Two is the second release of the official bootleg series series that, so far, includes the following albums:



This set features two (almost) complete Tangerine Dream concert recordings from 1978 and 1980, respectively. While the 1980 concert had been previously fan-released as Tangerine Tree Volume 17: East Berlin 1980 (2003), the 1978 concert was not part of the Tangerine Tree project, as the recording turned up when the project was no longer active.


Sound quality of both concerts is near to excellent; both sources had been especially pre-mastered for this release by Wouter Bessels, who as well has written extensive liner notes about Tangerine Dream covering the years 1978 to early 1980.


The set is nicely packaged: it comes in a cardboard box, including four photo cardboard sleeves (each one housing one of the four CDs), a 16 page booklet (including credits, the liner notes mentioned above, as well as numerous photos and scans) and a fold out poster (sized 24 by 36 cm) with the concert poster of the 1978 gig on the front and a large photo from the 1980 concert on the back.
