Notes

In 1983, Tangerine Dream supplied the music for the Science Fiction movie Wavelength, directed by Mike Gray, starring Robert Carradine, Cherie Currie and Keenan Wynn. Contrary to most other soundtrack albums featuring music by Tangerine Dream, the music was not reworked by TD for the 1984 album release; this resulted in a soundtrack album consisting of unusual many and short musical clips, some of them being remixes or excerpts from other compositions.

 


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

 


Re-Releases

 


A counterfeit re-release of the CD appeared in 1995 and was distributed like an official release. The cover artwork was reproduced from the LP cover instead from the CD cover, but it does not mention any company or order number. The CD body itself is totally different, showing cones printed in black and only the writings 'Tangerine Dream', 'Wavelength' and 'RE 133'. All music material is absolutely identical to the official version.

 


In March 2014 the album was officially re-released on CD by La-La-Land Records, a label specialized on soundtrack music, in a limited edition. The music was remastered and the 20-page booklet comes with new cover artwork, numerous photos taken from the movie, and extensive liners from writer Randall D. Larson about both the movie and the music.
