Producer, Engineer – Tangerine Dream. Not Tangerine Dream on this actually quite good album. I suppose its all down to what the individual fan wants to believe.

Encore’: The Tangerine Dream Album That Gives You More. Recorded and released in 1977, ‘Encore’ is frequently cited as the definitive live Tangerine Dream album, out of the many classics they recorded. Published on. April 5, 2019. Having gained a whole new legion of fans Stateside, Tangerine Dream bid North America an emotional farewell, and the much-revered Encore is now frequently cited as their definitive live artefact. Its release marked the end of an era, however, as long-time member Peter Baumann left in November 1977 and a reconfigured TD, featuring English vocalist Steve Jolliffe, returned to the fray with ’78’s prog-rock-inclined Cyclone. Encore can be bought here. Listen to the best of Tangerine Dream on Apple Music and this site.

Encore - Tangerine Dream Live, 1977 is one of the better concert albums from Tangerine Dream. As with most of their live releases, this disc features all new material. Each of the long-form (over 16 minutes) pieces has its own set of movements. In effect, it is like listening to four electronic symphonies. This is also one of the strongest TD lineups. It is Baumann's last recording with the band

Comments: (1)
Encore is a curious album, containing several different elements of the group's sound. This is perhaps why it is a distinct fan favourite. Recorded throughout their American tour in early 1977, the record features four lengthy pieces. Unlike Ricochet, their previous live record, the improvisations on show here feature elements of recorded music. Sections from Ricochet, Stratosfear and the Sorcerer soundtrack pop up at various points during the album. These aren't simply performed as individual tracks, but woven in and out of the original side-long pieces.The music on Encore continues somewhat in the vein of Stratosfear, moving away from the amorphous, bubbling soundscapes of the band's previous material, towards a more progressive rock sound, with keyboard solos taking much of the focus away from the sequencer melodies, which are left to run somewhat repetitively in the background. The introduction of Oberheim's polyphonic synthesisers adds a new textural element to the group's music, which would be key to their future in the 1980s. The record also features the electronic rhythms first hinted at in Stratosfear, which are particularly prominent in the third track, Coldwater Canyon.The sound quality is an issue that often comes up in regards to this remastered edition, and in truth it does leave something to be desired in places. In removing the hiss from an initially hissy recording, much of the dynamic element of the music has gone (not to mention its top end - it's the muddiest sounding of the band's Virgin albums); although this is not entirely surprising - the number of errors on the sleeves and booklets of Virgin's "Definitive Edition" albums shows that attention to detail wasn't necessarily the label's interest at the time. Further more, the original recording features some distortion as the band played so loud at the time. As opposed to some of the band's other 'polished-in-the-studio' live albums (particularly Ricochet), Encore is more like a good quality fan recording. In some ways, this lends it a certain authenticity.That said, album closer Desert Dream is the anomaly here. Although not mentioned in the sleeves, the music in the piece dates back to much earlier in the band's catalogue - which is not surprising on hearing it. The most abstract and experimental piece released as part of the band's Virgin catalogue, Desert Dream is a strange way to end an album filled with energetic live performances, although it sees the band being as idiosyncratic as ever.As I started, Encore is a curious album. It's an essential component of where the band were at the moment. Although unintentional, its referencing of previous records almost seems like Peter Baumann himself giving the 'encore', before leaving shortly after the tour ended. Out of context of the band's catalogue, your milage may vary. Not being a fan of long solos, much of the album - Coldwater Canyon in particular - can be tiresome for me personally, and the album ranks as one of my least favourite '70s TD albums. For those who enjoy the improvisational side of electronic and/or progressive music, the solo-led music on Encore will be perfect.
