Format: Audio CD
"Livemiles" presents two live 30-minute sets from Tangerine Dream concerts in 1986 and 1987. The first track, subtitled `The Albuquerque Concert' was recorded during the band's US tour in summer '86, while the second (`The West Berlin Concert') is taken from the concert that Tangerine Dream gave during the 750th Anniversary of the city of Berlin (still divided then, of course) on 1st August '87. This latter concert was, in fact, Chris Franke's last ever appearance with the group-he quit the band the next day-so this is something of a landmark recording in the history of Tangerine Dream, marking an end of their so-called Blue Years (and their releases on the Jive-Electro label).
The two sets played here are typical of Tangerine Dream in their heyday: large-scale works perfectly constructed and exquisitely executed, with superb use of power percussion programming, complex sequencer pulses, delightful sampler and synthesiser voicings and some lovely, mellifluous melodies weaving through it all. Everything blends to utter perfection, the tempos are constantly varied and there is not a single dull moment from start to finish. These must have been fabulous concerts to be at and this disc is a `must have' for all TD fans.
Incidentally, about half of this album is included (in a slightly different version) on the 5 CD collection "The Dream Roots Collection". That isn't enough, so even if you have that collection, you should have this disc too!

Released for public sale in late 1988, the concert album "Livemiles" is an account of two concert tours. I can't say that these are performances themselves, for reasons to be outlined in short order. In summer of 1986, the band successfully toured Americas, promoting their newest album, "Underwater Sunlight". All concerts were recorded, as is the band's custom. However, this album sleeve notes claim that the first of two tracks, 'The Albuquerque Concert' is the actual performance that took place in New Mexico. Those present at the gig beg to differ, for what finally appeared on the album is in fact a combination of the concert, other performances, and synthesizer passages added in studio. The second half of the album, 'The Berlin Concert', recorded in the vicinity of the Berlin Wall on the 1st of August, 1987, is doctored in a similar way. Thus one cannot claim that this is a live performance. Instead, what we get is a concert fruitcake augmented with various nuts added later to spice the actual gig - Edgar Froese mastered the album in late 1987 and prepared it for release the next year. This may be a disappointment for the purist, especially compared to the old days of the 70s, when the band was proud to experiment onstage, recording and then releasing whatever was performed. In a sense, Livemiles is located halfway down between these spontaneous gigs of old, and the computerized performances that were to become the standard in 1988 and later, when the band simply replayed the studio tracks on stage, just like any other ordinary rock band. "Livemiles" may not satisfy, yes, but only in the perspective of what happened later.
This said, the fruitcake sounds quite good.
