Tangerine Dream – 220 Volt Live – Cassette

220 Volt Live is a live album by the German electronic music band Tangerine Dream. It was released in 1993 and captures the band’s performance during their 1992 North American tour.

Germany’s Tangerine Dream (along with fellow countrymen Kraftwerk) either pioneered or directly influenced a slew of genres including electronica, new wave, new age, techno, and dance.

The album features recordings from various concerts throughout the tour, showcasing Tangerine Dream’s unique blend of electronic, ambient, and progressive rock music. It includes both new compositions and reworked versions of some of the band’s classic tracks.

By the early ’90s, founding guitarist/keyboardist Edgar Froese had revamped the incredibly prolific group’s lineup and brought his son, guitarist/keyboardist Jerome Froese, on board as his musical partner and pursued a more rock-oriented direction.

The fascinating 1993 album 220 Volt Live, featuring ten all-new songs and one cover, was recorded on Tangerine Dream’s 1992 North American tour and it was the band’s first live album in five years. Guitarist Zlatko Perica and saxophonist/keyboardist Linda Spa joined as touring members, and their work is a vitally important part of the 220 Volt Live sound.

The hypnotic overall feel of the music is enhanced by energetic rhythm tracks, the lengthy guitar solos from Perica, Edgar Froese, and Jerome Froese and Spa’s floating saxophone lines. “Oriental Haze,” “Two Bunch Palms,” “220 Volt,” “Sundance Kid,” “Backstreet Hero,” “Hamlet,” and “Dreamtime” are the best fresh songs.

The lone cover is the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s “Purple Haze.” Although Tangerine Dream’s fine interpretation was nominated for a best rock instrumental Grammy, its appearance as one of the encores is abrupt and jarring; mood-wise it feels conspicuously out of place amidst the flow of new material.

220 Volt Live offers a dynamic and immersive experience, with the band’s signature soundscapes and intricate musical arrangements brought to life in a live setting. The album highlights Tangerine Dream’s improvisational skills and their ability to create expansive soundscapes that take listeners on a sonic journey.

With its energetic performances and mesmerizing electronic textures, “220 Volt Live” serves as a testament to Tangerine Dream’s influential role in the development of electronic music. It showcases the band’s proficiency in creating immersive and atmospheric sound worlds, and it remains a cherished release among fans of the genre.
