Tangerine Dream - Alpha Centauri (1971)
Alpha Centauri (1971) is an album by the German electronic music group Tangerine Dream. The music on this album is quite different from Tangerine Dream’s first album Electronic Meditation, due to a heavier reliance on keyboards and electronic technology. This shift in instrumentation resulted in an atmosphere and mood dubbed by Edgar Froese himself Kosmische musik to describe the results.
This album sold 20,000 copies in their native Germany, nearly four times as many as their later classic Phaedra.
