Ahead of the release on the 30 October release of their new box set, Pilots Of Purple Twilight – The Virgin Recordings 1980-1983, Tangerine Dream have shared “The Night In Romania”, taken from the much sought after and previously unreleased soundtrack to The Keep, directed by Michael Mann. You can check the track out below.
“The Night In Romania” is one of numerous previously unreleased tracks from the new box set, which also features previously unreleased material across 4 discs, including the full concert at The Dominion Theatre, London from November 1982. In addition, it includes 4 tracks from White Eagle and Daydream – Moorland that are released for the first time on CD and digitally. Thief includes “Dr. Destructo” (extended version), previously only used for promotional use only.
The Tangerine Dream tracks featured on the Virgin soundtrack LP for the movie Risky Business are also included in the box set, including the band’s biggest streamer, “Love on a Real Train” and from the Virgin archive, the unreleased songs from the soundtrack to the 1982 movie The Soldier, which was scored, composed and performed by the legendary electronic outfit.
Released through UMC, Pilots Of Purple Twilight also includes newly re-mastered versions of the albums Tangram, Thief, Exit, White Eagle, Logos Live, Hyperborea along with the previously unreleased soundtrack for The Keep from the 1983 movie directed by Michael Mann, something of a holy grail for Tangerine Dream fans. All audio has been drawn from the original master tapes and has been enhanced by new stereo mixes by Ben Wiseman.
Single CD editions of Tangram, Thief, Exit, White Eagle, Hyperborea and Logos Live are also set for release with the audio taken from the 2020 remasters and feature bonus tracks from the box set. A D2C edition of the box set will also be available which includes a reproduction of a rare poster.
