Phaedra was Tangerine Dream’s first release after signing to Richard Branson’s Virgin Records label.
The album was recorded at the Manor, the studio inside a manor house in Shipton-on-Cherwell in Oxfordshire, England, which was already celebrated by early 1974 as the location in which Mike Oldfield had created Tubular Bells.
Phaedra was produced by Tangerine Dream founder Edgar Froese, who also painted the image on the album cover.
The original was released on February 20, 1974. The re-release features remastered audio, from from 2019’s box set In Search Of Hades. The second LP of the set features bonus tracks from the Phaedra sessions. The release is pressed on 180g tangerine colored vinyl.
Record Store Day 2020 has been postponed from April 18, 2020 to June 20th, as a result of the Coronavirus Pandemic.
