Tangerine Leaves Volume 9: Berlin 1981 presents surely the most noisy TD audience recording ever. This was a "free concert for nuclear disarmement and world peace" which was held at the Platz der Republik in front of the Reichstag building in West Berlin. It is a pity that no better recording of this one-off concert exists, because it featured a completely unique set list, including compositions played live only at this venue. The overall sound quality is not excellent but not bad either, but it is much spoiled by an (probably drunken) audience that keeps talking and shouting throughout the gig (obviously a common problem with free concerts).


A much better recording of this concert with less annoying audience noise was later released as part of the Tangerine Tree project as Tangerine Tree Volume 53: Berlin 1981.
