Notes

"Let there be more light!"
- Christ

 


From mid October to late November 1982, TD toured in Europe performing 31 gigs at all in Austria, Hungary, Yugoslavia, the UK, Belgium, West and East Germany. The concert at the Dominion Theatre in London was released only a few weeks after on the record Logos Live. According to Johannes Schmoelling, this is one of his favourite albums. He considers "the live concept and the smooth transition between one idea and the next to be the key of the album's success."

 


Logos Live features only 50 minutes of the original concert: The first six and the last 39 minutes of the main set plus one of the three encores. The remaining music is for some part officially unreleased by now, other tracks origin from the albums Exit (1981), White Eagle (1982), The Keep (1983, released 1997) and Poland (1984). A remastered audience recording of the complete concert has been released by TD fans in 2003 as Tangerine Leaves Volume 1: London 1982.

 


The first series of the LP released in Germany contained a 4-page text sheet in German language, 'Die Elektroniker der ersten Stunde', with a band history 'Tangerine Dream 1972-1982' and with covers, track listings and catalogue numbers of all TD and Edgar Froese solo LPs available by Virgin in Germany at that time. The front page graphics reminds of the LP cover of White Eagle and was later reused by bootleggers for the Timeless Space release.

 


Re-Releases

 


In 1984 the album was released on CD for the first time as part of a series by Virgin. With the exception of Exit, all releases of this series had a similar cover design, using only part of the original artwork in a monochrome border that featured the band and album title.

 


In 1995 Virgin re-released the album on CD in the so-called "Definitive Edition" series, featuring the original front cover artwork. For this release, the two compositions Logos, Part One and Logos, Part Two have been mixed together, forming the track Logos of some 44 minutes length.

 


In 2012 the original album was re-released as part of the compilation box The Virgin Years 1977-1983.
