Having gone out of print on release day of June 14th, we at CDS towers have spent a lot of time and effort scooping up what copies there were left over Europe to help satisfy the post-release demand, and we have covered all those who wanted it come-what-may!
We suspected a repress may be on the cards, but nothing has been made certain since the original release date passed, but as of 9th July 2019 we have been informed that these copies - LIMITED as they are - will in fact be available early-mid August 2019, so if you missed out first time round, or couldn’t make up your mind and when you did it was gone, this is another chance to pick up a copy of this wonderful EM artefact that has taken TANGERINE DREAM fans to heaven and back over the past few weeks!
We are now making TANGERINE DREAM ‘In Search Of Hades’ available for pre-orders again, and because the campaign for the Individual CD releases of the first Seven Virgin albums has been so successful, we are keeping that running too for the foreseeable future!
Below is a further updated version of the details for the box and its many components…

TANGERINE DREAM were one of the true pioneers of electronic and ambient music and the albums they recorded for Virgin Records between 1973 and 1979 remain classics of the genre!

‘In Search Of Hades: The Virgin Recordings 1973 – 1979’ is the definitive statement of this period in TD’s history, featuring NEWLY REMASTERED versions of the albums: ‘Phaedra’ (1974), ‘Rubycon’ (1975), ‘Ricochet’ (1975), ‘Stratosfear’ (1976), ‘Encore’ (1977), ‘Cyclone’ (1978) and ‘Force Majeure’ (1979), all drawn from the original first generation master tapes.

The box also contains NEW Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound Mixes of ‘Phaedra’ and ‘Ricochet’ by Steven Wilson, PLUS 8 CD’s of PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED material: 3 London Concerts in full (Victoria Palace Theatre in 1974, The Rainbow Theatre in 1974 and The Royal Albert Hall in 1975). The RAH recording is NEW as taken from the soundboard by the Manor Mobile in STEREO (every previous release has been in mono) and mixed by Phil Newell in 1975. The Rainbow Theatre set also has the full John Peel intro (again unlike any other release).

Then there’s the PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED full soundtrack to ‘Oedipus Tyrannus’, recorded in July 1974 and now remixed in 5.1 Surround Sound and Stereo by Steven Wilson.
The box also includes 2 CD’s of PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED outtakes from the ‘Phaedra’ sessions at The Manor Studios, Oxfordshire in November 1973 and the surviving 35-minute live recording from Coventry Cathedral in October 1975.

The set is completed by 2 BluRay Discs featuring the 5.1 Mixes of ‘Phaedra’, ‘Oedipus Tyrannus’ and ‘Ricochet’, along with a 1976 German TV performance and BBC Old Grey Whistle Test broadcast of TANGERINE DREAM at Coventry Cathedral.

‘In Search Of Hades: The Virgin Recordings 1973 – 1979’’ is released on 14th June 2019.

Single CD versions of the main albums are released on the same day – These are: ‘Phaedra’, ‘Rubycon’, ‘Ricochet’, ‘Stratosfear’, ‘Encore’, ‘Cyclone’ and ‘Force Majeure’. Apart from the packaging, these discs are identical to their Boxed Set counterparts, so the audio is also from the 2018 Remasters and the featured Bonus Tracks are also as on the Box versions, including the Steven Wilson Remixes. * See Details Below *
