n memory of one of the most inspirational musicians I've ever heard, Edgar Froese. My first Tangerine Dream record was purchased when I was 14 and almost 20 years later I still draw enormous amounts of inspiration for my own musical output from all the amazing pieces of music I own by Froese and his brilliant project, Tangerine Dream. Very few musicians have had the longevity in success and creative output that Froese experienced. Even if I had to sell all my records tomorrow, I could never part with my TD & Froese albums...as his music has been a part of me since I was a kid.
