Bought for 8 euros, new and sealed. It looks like a budget edition. BUT it sounds flawlessly, with good dynamics. Deathly silent and flat.
Nothing else is needed.

There is a "PM221" price code sticker over the OG printed price code version of this French cat#

The copy I have matches this, except nowhere on either the sleeve or label does it show 1981. Can anyone prove this?

This has to be one of the best periods from the vast TD journey and possibly the best line up. Nothing more needs to be said about this Album, apart from CLASSIC.

Tangerine Dream's first official live album, Ricochet, is very much an album of two sides, each developing their recently pioneered Berlin-School sound into new directions. The first is heavy on electric guitar and percussion, for the first time since their albums on Ohr at the start of the decade, although the direction here is more focused and, combined with layers of synth and mellotron, is more in line with progressive rock than their earlier krautrock leanings.

The second side is particularly intriguing. Starting with their most straight-forward music yet, a beautiful solo piano piece, it quickly launches into the sequencer section - and then never lets up. Ricochet Part Two is one of the most intense pieces of music TD have ever recorded, and to see it live must have been incredible! As the piece gradually morphs and changes over the course of twenty minutes, the true skill of the band as programmers shines through, and it's a real shame they never managed to do anything on this scale again. On the other hand, it could be seen as them pushing the sequence-based sound as far as it could possibly go, so they moved onto newer things.

Neither of the sides features the atmospheric, spacey sound the group were previously known for at this point, and that in itself marks the album out as an important step in their continual evolution. Context aside, Ricochet stands up as an excellent album and a necessary listen for anyone interested in pre-dance electronic music.
