|Tangerine Tree Volume 36: Assorted Secrets is different from any other released volume of this series in that it does not feature a complete concert but compiles a number of rare tracks, of which most were taken from the German radio shows 'Schwingungen' and 'Electrobeats'. Usually TD gave an interview and brought along some nice goodies like excerpts from live tours which were just completed. The majority of the tracks on this 2-CD set comes from these two radio shows, the rest was taken from video cassettes or other radio shows.|
The track Underground End Titles was taken from the German video Auf Scheisser schießt man nicht (aka Underground), starring Edgar Froese among other mostly unknown actors. It is a strange, quite anarchic movie, and the music for this film was supplied by the so-called 'Tangerine Dream Band'. This is most probably one of the short-lived predecessors of Tangerine Dream that Edgar Froese founded after he had left The Ones. The line-up of this band during the soundtrack recording is unknown.
Ultima Thule Improvisation was taken from a radio broadcast in 1970; the line-up might be Froese/Schulze/Schnitzler. Geradeaus bis zum Morgen is an excerpt of the unreleased soundtrack for the German movie of the same name, dating from 1972 (probably performed by Froese/Franke/Baumann). Signale aus der Schwaebischen Straße is a 15 minute long remastered medley from the German name-sake video, performed by Froese/Franke/Baumann.
Calymba Caly, originating from the 1980/1981 world tour was taken from an 'Electrobeats' show. The live version of White Eagle was performed on September 9th, 1982 during the German TV show 'Bio's Bahnhof'. Both tracks were performed by the line-up Froese/Franke/Schmoelling. Loved By The Sun is a composition for the movie Legend with vocals by Susanne Pawlitzki that is totally different from the version featuring Jon Anderson. It was provided by Tangerine Dream but rejected by the movie studio and never released officially.
Legend Leftover and Cool Breeze Of Brighton were taken from the concert at Brighton on March 24th, 1986 and broadcast on 'Electrobeats', while Yellowstone Park (Rocky Mountains), Scuba Scuba (here titled Samba Motel) and Underwater Twilight were taken from three different shows (Los Angeles, Phoenix and Albuquerque) during the 1986 North America tour and broadcast on 'Schwingungen'.
Shy Shila is a track composed for the soundtrack Shy People that was rejected and at that time officially unreleased. Papyrus (Piano) (here titled Canyon Classics) is a widely extended version of the piano solo as it was performed during the 1988 North America tour. Phaedra was performed in Dallas on September 14th, 1988 during the same tour, while Optical Race was performed live on February 16th, 1989 on the RTL TV show 'Action'.
The remaining tracks were all taken from 'Electrobeats' shows: Mandala is from the unreleased 1990 soundtrack of the namesake movie. On Crane's Passage is a demo version of the composition released on Goblins Club.
Barbakane, Sundance Kid, Catwalk, Touchwood and Towards The Evening Star originate from the London concert on November 30th, 1996 (that is in full length released as Tangerine Leaves Volume 10: London 1996 and Tangerine Leaves Volume 11: London 1996).
Maedchen On The Stairs and Thief Yang And The Tangram Seal were taken from the Brussels concert on April 19th, 1997, while As The Sun Moves Towards Heaven and Beatrice, L'Âme Infinie were recorded during the world premiere concert of Inferno (that is in full length released as Tangerine Tree Volume 3: Bernau 2001, too).
Due to the different sources of the music material sound quality ranges from excellent to good. It is an excellent collection of live and studio tracks, covering a range of more than 30 years of band history. Two addendums to this set have been released later as Tangerine Tree Volume 50: Assorted Secrets 2 and Tangerine Tree Volume 63: Assorted Secrets 3.
As with all releases of the Tangerine Tree project, this release is made by fans for fans. It must not be sold but is to be traded freely.
