The life of a Tangerine Dream Collector......

Tangerine + Dream

To collect music from your favourite band is a funny disease! You MUST get the latest album or single. When it comes to rare or hard to get albums, you try any cd store out there, before checking Ebay. My passion is the german Instrumental-Electronic band Tangerine Dream. It started back in 1982, when I heard the 20 min. long track "Mojave Plan" from the album White Eagle. From that moment there was no way back!

The band released it`s first album "Electronic Meditation" back in 1970, with the members Edgar Froese, Klaus Schulze and Conrad Schnitzler. They have released about 140-145 albums to date. (including many soundtracks and compilations and re-releases etc)

I have now seen the group 11 times around in Europe, and met the band several times backstage. It do cost a lot of money being a somewhat "mad-collector"! But it is definately a funny disease. :-) cheers.

So here is my entire Tangerine Dream collection, with solo artists and ex-members as well.

    Wow. You are a total TD fanatic ;) I've got about 30 original albums (which is a lot in terms of having original discs, but judging by TD's output it's still less than one third).

    Hm, compared to this I don't dare list my relatively small collection, hehe.

    You can make me a "smalltown boy" by listing up your Klaus Schulze collection Thomas! Then it`s suddenly the other way around! :-)
