On the occasion of their Berlin gig on September 21st, 2006 Tangerine Dream released a limited single recording once more. This one features three tracks composed and recorded individually by Edgar Froese, Jerome Froese and Thorsten Quaeschning, hence they are stylistic quite different from each other. Edgar Froese's composition with the tongue-in-cheek title Tangines On And Running is a layered track using warm sounds, quite similar to the compositions he provided for Blue Dawn or his more recent solo albums. The track by Jerome Froese, Quartermaster's Nightmare is more complex, very rhytmical and much in the style of his solo recording Neptunes, unsurprisingly. The most interesting track on this release might be Thorsten Quaeschning's Day Shift. It starts with weird voices, then a relaxed, somewhat stuttering rhythm is added until after a little more than two minutes the track emerges into a strong, quite epic composition with big lead lines. It is best compared with some of his material from the album Jeanne d'Arc.


Interestingly, none of these three tracks has been performed during the concert at the Berlin Tempodrome, but both the compositions by Edgar Froese and Thorsten Quaeschning were later reused as base of two vocal compositions on the album Madcap's Flaming Duty (2007).
