Two days after starting their North American tour in the city of Milwaukee on March 29th, 1977, Tangerine Dream gave an outstanding performance in the Detroit Ford Auditorium, a concert that can be best described as 'Heavy Metal Electronics', as it contains some of the most vicious and furious guitar work by Edgar Froese that has been heard so far.


Maybe he wanted to pay tribute to Detroit's punk music heroes The Stooges, whose singer Iggy Pop was mentioned in the credits of Edgar Froese's solo work Macula Transfer. Compared to the excellent audience recording as presented on Tangerine Tree Volume 25: Detroit 1977, the official Encore double album release sounds almost tame, and it seems that the frantic Detroit audience transported Tangerine Dream to new creative heights, such is the intensity of this concert.


With Tangerine Tree VIII, released in late 2005, this volume has been re-released with a new version of this recording, offering a clearer sound, being remastered from a first generation recording. With this re-release the track sequence was corrected that had been completely mixed up on the original release.


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.
