Pilots of the Purple Twilight: The Virgin Recordings 1980 –1983

10CD box set • Studio albums • Unreleased soundtracks • Live

Tangerine Dream follow up their superb In Search of Hades box set with another Virgin-era package. Pilots of the Purple Twilight: The Virgin Recordings 1980-1983 showcases the next chapter and features newly remastered versions of the albums Tangram, Thief, Exit, White Eagle, Logos, Hyperborea along with the previously unreleased soundtracks.

The soundtracks are for the films The Soldier, the 1982 movie directed by James Glickenhaus and The Keep from the 1983 movie directed by Michael Mann. All audio has been re-mastered from the original master tapes by Ben Wiseman.

Pilots of Purple Twilight also features additional previously unreleased material across four discs, including the full concert at The Dominion Theatre, London in November 1982.

In addition to this the soundtrack to Thief includes an extended promotional only version of  'Dr. Destructo', White Eagle features six bonus tracks recorded for the German television crime drama series Tatort (originally released on a 12-inch single and a seven-inch single in Germany only), all of which are released for the first time on CD and digitally.

Finally, Hyperborea includes five bonus tracks originally issued on the Virgin soundtrack LP for the movie Risky Business, including Tangerine Dream’s biggest streaming track, Love On A Real Train.

The packaging is pleasingly consistent with the previous set and comes with a hardcover book with a new essay and many rare photographs and memorabilia.
