Sad news, the music he did with Cluster and Harmonia was simply wonderful.

Weird bump but I've finally found a video I'd been looking for for ages. At 3:29 is this Tangerine Dream or just a BBC library music copycat?

Track called Sirius, from 1982. I suppose lots of stuff sounded like that by that point.

I thought this bump was going to be about Quantum Key, the first post-Edgar release, which came out this week. Still waiting for my CD...

Thanks guys - certainly goes in a very different direction than the loop I've been used to for years !

I see there's another Tangerine Dream box coming out, the follow up to last year's mind blowing "In Search Of Hades" to cover the rest of the Virgin Years.

Not so many extras to the next month's "Pilots of Purple Twilight" but with the extras they are providing, they really are spoiling us:

The Soldier previously unreleased OST
The Keep OST
TD bit of Risky Business OST
Music from German crime drama Tatort, first time on CD.
Full show from Dominion London 1982 (i.e. Logos), which effectively means you get The Keep soundtrack live as well - bootlegs from that tour are pretty stunning.

Mind blown once again...

Should surprise me if this is actually exciting music, Tatort is one of the most dull tv series ever, especially if it's from the 80ies :D

The original sold really well so I’m not surprised they’ve done a follow up, even if Chris Franke’s lack of interest has resulted in a smaller number of rarities. The Keep is from the original 1984 tapes so that’s a nice one to finally have.

Really hoping Esoteric decide to do similar boxes for the Pink and Blue years. Even just the standalone releases with the Official Bootlegs and such would be nice in a big box with a book...

Picking up the Esoteric remaster of Pergamon as well as that limited edition remaster of the their soundtrack to the film Wavelength to fill in the gaps from that period to go with the new box.
Wished they had included full, un-tangentized studio versions of "Calymba Caly", "Silver Scale", and "Horns of Doom" and maybe some more of the lesser known soundtrack work from the period, but I suppose everything is from the Virgin vaults.

Esoteric already released Pink Years and Blue Years boxes, but they only included the albums with no extra goodies, live performances, singles, etc. which they left on the individual release remasters.

These boxes are a very nice tribute to Edgar Froese's gift to music.

Yeah, those boxsets lacked the bonus tracks... happens quite a lot with these things, the contracts are only for the bonuses to be on the standard albums. They're also small boxes, without liner notes. Wouldn't mind nice 12" deluxe boxes like these. I'm guessing they'll do a Blue Years Live box as the next thing to line up with the others.
