The first look at the 4-CD set Electronic Orgy may remind people not of music, but regardless of the explicit cover artwork and the word 'orgy' in the title, these CDs contain music only and nothing else. The set is a compilation of well-known but mostly rare material from 25 years of TD's career. The four CDs compile material that has mostly been available on vinyl releases in the past, but not on official CDs. Some stuff that has been unavailable to the public has been added, for example tracks from promo releases or from radio broadcasts.


For several years, TD had not taken legal steps against bootleg releases. But after the release of Electronic Orgy, Edgar Froese announced that Tadream Productions would charge lawyers with investigations against the producers of this pirate set. "It is time to put an end to such illegal activities", he said to Dream Collector in early 1998. The points that had made Edgar Froese upset were wholesale offers in the USA and distribution via Internet in large numbers. "I do not believe that there are only the alleged 300 copies", he said and estimated the edition to be some 4,000 copies. "We have often turned a blind eye to fan products of a few copies which did not really violate our interests. But Electronic Orgy is the product of a criminal offence." The set contains material which TD was working on for releases on the TDI label, Edgar Froese said. "We will take action against that with extreme severity."
