Notes

The mid-eighties were a particularly productive period for Tangerine Dream recording several movie soundtracks. All three band members had invested their film soundtrack earnings into their own studios, as Edgar Froese recalls: "I was always looking around for soundtrack work to get things going, as one can imagine that it cost a lot of money. The aim was that each member of the band had his own recording place to work independently and prepare things, because if there was just one big studio and one member was working or trying to do his sound research, then the others would be just hanging around and waiting."

 


Another movie Tangerine Dream composed the music for was Firestarter in 1984, basing on a novel by Stephen King, starring Drew Barrymore, Heather Locklear and Martin Sheen. According to director Mark L. Lester, Tangerine Dream never actually saw the film. They sent him some music and told him to choose whatever he liked.

 


More information about this movie is available at The Internet Movie Database.

 


Re-Releases

 


Fans had to wait six years for a release of this soundtrack album on CD. Eventually it was released in 1990 in the USA and the UK by different record companies, the UK version providing a much better sound quality than the USA release.
