Following up on the success of In Search Of Hades – a deluxe boxed set focusing on Tangerine Dream‘s most influential period – UMC has announced Pilots of Purple Twilight, a 10 CD boxed set, showcasing the next chapter in the band’s history.
Pilots of Purple Twilight focuses on the albums Tangerine Dream recorded for Virgin Records between 1980 and 1983. The collection features newly re-mastered versions of the albums Tangram, Thief, Exit, White Eagle, Logos and Hyperborea, along with previously unreleased soundtracks from the films The Soldier and The Keep, something of a holy grail for Tangerine Dream fans.
All audio has been re-mastered from the original master tapes by Ben Wiseman.
- The full concert at The Dominion Theatre, London (November 1982);
- The soundtrack to Thief includes an extended promotional only version of Dr. Destructo;
- White Eagle features six bonus tracks recorded for the German television crime drama series Tatort (originally released on a 12-inch single and a 7-inch single in Germany only), all of which are released for the first time on CD and digitally; and
- Hyperborea includes five bonus tracks, originally issued on the Virgin soundtrack LP for the movie Risky Business, including Tangerine Dream’s biggest streaming track, Love On A Real Train.
Pilots Of Purple Twilight is lavishly packaged, with a hard-back book, with a new essay and many rare photographs and memorabilia.
1 CD versions of Tangram, Thief, Exit, White Eagle, Hyperborea & Logos will also be released, with audio from the 2020 remasters and the bonus tracks from the boxed set.
Pilots of Purple Twilight will be available to order Oct 16, 2020.
