220 VOLT LIVE is the companion to the full length video-album THREE PHASE.
Tangerine Dream: Jerome Froese, Edgar Froese (guitar, keyboards).
Additional personnel: Zlatko Perica (guitar); Linda Spa (saxophone, keyboards).
Recorded live on Tangerine Dream's 1992 North American tour.
It's no secret that Tangerine Dream has undergone many transformations in the quarter-century of its existence. Simply put, clichT wasn't the only rust penetrating the Dream's armor; corrosive lackluster-ness was also intruding. TD's '90s metamorphosis has the band finally reaping big rewards--especially in the good old U.S. of A--since trading in epic grandeur for energized sound bites.
220 VOLT LIVE puts the doubts to rest (at least until the next studio effort) that Froese & friends can not only still stage a convincing and imaginative show but also program out the chaff by getting with the program. The improvisational hallmarks of their live performances remain a constant--a definite plus. The record undoubtedly contains re-worked versions of music from ROCKOON, LILY ON THE BEACH, etc., but these pieces have been re-worked with more fire, ingenuity, and spark than their studio counterparts. It's good to hear that the Dream hasn't faded into memory. Nice CD package, too.
