The Official Bootleg Series Volume One is the second release of the official bootleg series series that, so far, includes the following albums:
This set features two (probably) complete Tangerine Dream concert recordings from 1974 and 1976. Both had been previously fan-released as Tangerine Tree Volume 30: Reims 1974 (2003) and as part of Tangerine Tree Volume 13: Germany 1976, respectively.
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 era from late 1973 to 1976.
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 two different concert posters of the 1974 gig.
