Tangerine Dream, founded by the visionary Edgar Froese in 1967, gained recognition for their groundbreaking approach to music, characterized by ambient, electronic, and experimental elements. As they progressed through the 1970s, the band's live performances became as significant as their studio recordings.

Recording Process:

The decision to record the live performances and release them as an album was a significant step for Tangerine Dream. The recording process posed its own set of challenges, given the technology available at the time.

The band employed state-of-the-art analog recording equipment, navigating through the complexities of capturing the intricacies of their electronic soundscapes in a live setting. This meticulous approach aimed to preserve the spontaneity and energy of their performances while maintaining the sonic clarity that defined Tangerine Dream's studio albums.
