Along with the album 220 Volt Live the video Three Phase was released in 1993. The video imagery is arranged according to the tracks of the soundtrack with emphasis on the Seattle 1992 concert. Short vintage shots of the band retrospective have been edited down from 16 hours of archival film supplied by TD. Live shots are mixed up with pictures of three bicycles pedaling in the desert (Dolls In The Shadow), a despaired man on the streetcorner (Treasure Of Innocence), neon effects and San Francisco night shots (Oriental Haze), night skies (Graffiti Street and Backstreet Hero), colourful geometric patterns (Phaedra) and older shots with longhaired Chris Franke and Johannes Schmoelling (Hamlet).


More information about this video is available at The Internet Movie Database.




In 2003 the video release Three Phase (1993) was re-released in the USA on DVD and retitled Live In America 1992. Apparently the DVD was mastered using the VHS sources, as the video quality is not better that the original release. The whole package seems quite cheap and does not mention that it is a re-release of Three Phase.


In Europe the video was released in 2004 by another company and included not only the DVD but also a bonus audio CD with the same music material. This was the first time the material was officially released on an audio medium.


The audio CD was re-released again in 2006 in Europe by another record label, titled only Tangerine Dream. The track listing on the backside of the 2-page insert is correct with the exception that the opening title Two Bunch Palms is credited to Billy Joe Walker instead of Edgar Froese. Walker in fact has composed a completely different piece with the same name.
