New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Tangerine Dream are one of the true pioneers of electronic and ambient music, and the albums they recorded for Virgin Records between 1980 and 1983 remain classics of the genre.
Off the back of the success of In Search of Hades, Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company, are pleased to announce the release of Pilots of Purple Twilight - The Virgin recordings 1980 - 1983, a 10 x CD box set, released October 30, showcasing the next chapter in this period of Tangerine Dream's history.

The box set features newly re-mastered versions of the albums Tangram, Thief, Exit, White Eagle, Logos Live, Hyperborea along with the previously unreleased soundtrack for The Keep from the 1983 movie directed by Michael Mann, something of a holy grail for Tangerine Dream fans.
