Performer Notes
  • Tangerine Dream: Edgar Froese, Chris Franke, Peter Baumann.
  • Recorded live in France and England in Fall 1975.
  • The live RICOCHET (sporting one of Monique Froese's more enigmatic and abstract covers) remains a high water mark amongst Tangerine Dream's vast in-concert recordings. During their notorious mid-'70s live performances, they were for a time considered to be the loudest band ever--it's not hard to imagine the effect on the inner ear canals of this album's bubbling sequencers played at jet-plane volume. This is still classic electronic music.
  • RICOCHET is divided into two parts, which consist of the three band members pitching their towering banks of synths, sequencers, and drum machines (not to mention some galactically charged guitar) high into the winter night. Edgar Froese conducts himself mightily, erecting great black voids of synthesized matter through which swirling sequencer motifs and beat patterns eke out vast, interstellar heavenly bodies. Put this on the hi-fi, and let the Dream bounce you off the walls.
