One Night In Africa contains nine tracks inspired from Africa. While there are four new compositions (of a total length of some 23 minutes), the remaining tracks are taken from releases of recent years:



So this album is somewhat similar to the Booster series, being a compilation of recent TD compositions featuring some additional new music material.


The four page booklet contains the track listing, credits and extensive liner notes; the album cover prominently features the face of Edgar Froese's wife Bianca Froese-Acquaye.


The Eastgate Music Shop about the CD release"In October 2006 in an old tribal home at Madagascar someone of the elder people told us about the development of the human race: 'Here your feet are touching the cradle ground of mankind!' he said, 'What terrible price this African race had to pay in ages just for being the first ones on this planet.' In that night the idea was born to compose a few songs for a TD Africa compilation. Not the typical ethnic acoustic material -- there are others who did it much more authentically. One Night In Africa reflects the timeless atmosphere of those African spirits sprayed out over the globe in hundreds of years. TD wanted to pay a little tribute to the positive fact of their human existence and endless passion. Even during wars, the brutality and mindless behaviour of so-called civilized nations the people of this extraordinary continent have shown their willingness to forgive those who came second. Touch the ground yourself musically -- it is your ground, your cradle as well."


Only a few days after its CD release this album became available as MP3 download at the Tangerine Dream Download Shop as well.
