Tangerine Dream

35th Anniversary Phaedra Concert DVD

Review by Gary Hill

First, let’s state up front that this is a great concert. Tangerine Dream’s music is presented here in an exceptional powerful live performance. We even get a cover of Jimi Hendirx’ “Purple Haze.” There really is nothing that anyone can complain about with this concert. There are some issues in terms of the audio and video, though. While the audio is adequate (and in today’s age of digital technology that’s less than what we expect), the video has its share of issues. The actual filming of the show, in terms of camera angles, cut aways and such is great. It’s just that at times the lighting really plays tricks with the cameras, overpowering it with one color or another and washing out. It’s not enough of a problem (or consistent enough) to be a major issue, but it does need to be mentioned. Other than that minor problem, we get a killer show from 1999. well worth the price of admission.
