Tangerine Dream - Machu Picchu (Yellow Vinyl)
Machu Picchu is one of the more intimate projects by Tangerine Dream - not planned for a release during the composing and recording process. It is a homage to a man who- like no other person in the business- had ‘created’ Tangerine Dream’s career from a distance many years ago, believing in their talent and extraordinary skills. His name was John Peel. This LP is more than just another record, it is a non-verbal applause, a greettng, a respectful obeisance for a man who truly was remarkable and unique in the best sense of those words. Edgar Froese didn’t want to release these compositions in the first place- “I’ve made them for myself” he said. Edgar also wrote about John and their 1974 encounter in London in his autobiography Force Majeure, with the chapter in question (‘The John Peel Files’) reprinted in a booklet within this package.
