— Tangerine Dream ‘defined’ the Berlin school of electronic
music. While they had many changes in their personnel over the years,
the definitive lineup of “TaDream” of Edgar Froese, Paul Haslinger,
Jerome Froese, & Hubert Waldner defined their true greatness.
The album Le Parc, released in 1985, was the last recorded
with Johannes Schmoelling. It is for all those who love moving, energetic
but smooth, instrumental music, whether they like electronic or not.
This themed album just “makes it.” Each song
is inspired by a different park, which mostly is used
in the tracks’ names. I’ve listened to Tangerine Dream
for decades
now, and this is one of their best efforts.

Tangerine Dream — Le Parc
(full album)

More Electronic Music at its Finest,
the best Germany ever gave us.

The Daily Walk with Love, March 12, 2018, by Paul Evans. Video is Tangerine Dream – Le Parc (full album), courtesy of Richard W. and YouTube — 44:57. This is another Tangerine Dream album which is not at all “dark,” as some of their other albums are. Moreover, unlike some electronic music, Le Parc is quite accessible to the average music listener who doesn’t normally listen to this genre. In general, Tangerine Dream can be directly listened to, or used as a sort of propulsive background music while you work at something else. Featured photograph courtesy of Wikimedia Commons.

According to Apple Music,

Without doubt, the recordings of Tangerine Dream made the greatest impact on the widest variety of instrumental music during the 1980s and ’90s, ranging from the most atmospheric new age and space music to the harshest abrasions of electronic dance. Founded in 1967 by Edgar Froese in Berlin, the group progressed through a full three-dozen lineups (Froese being the only continuous member with staying power) and four distinct stages of development: the experimentalist minimalism of the late ’60s and early ’70s; stark sequencer trance during the mid- to late ’70s, the group’s most influential period; an organic form of instrumental music on their frequent film and studio work during the 1980s; and, finally, a more propulsive dance style, which showed Tangerine Dream with a sound quite similar to their electronic inheritors in the field of dance music.”

Saying that Tangerine Dream “defined” the Berlin school of electronic music, Apple offers 15 of their albums for purchase in iTunes format. If you prefer high quality digital mp3’s, Amazon also has a good but smaller selection of albums by Tangerine Dream, mostly greatest hits collections, but different than what Apple has and worth a look.

You might wish to read Tangerine Dream Founder Edgar Froese Dead at 70 from Rolling Stone in 2015. Edgar Froese was 70 years old and went quickly from a pulmonary embolism. There are two different seemingly “official” Facebook pages for Tangerine Dream, and it’s hard to tell which is which, since both are well done. But please feel invited to visit Tangerine Dream’s Facebook page, or another good Facebook page about Tangerine Dream, which may be the official one since the photos match what’s on the band’s website. See the band’s official website here, www.tangerinedream.org, where they have a moving tribute to Edgar Froese, the band’s founding member and heart, who has passed away.

According to Wikipedia:

Le Parc is the twenty-sixth album by electronic artists Tangerine Dream. Each track on the album is inspired by a particular park from somewhere around the world. Le Parc marked Tangerine Dream’s last studio release with Johannes Schmoelling; he left the band in October 1985. The title track “Le Parc” was used as the theme for the short-lived U.S television series, Street Hawk. A video was produced for “Tiergarten”. The track “Central Park” was used as the opening theme for the movie Diamond Ninja Force directed by Godfrey Ho.

The Daily Walk with Love also has Best of Tangerine Dream, which I’m sure you will like if you like Le Parc, and if you really want more, see our Melrose from 1990 might be a good choice.
