Tangerine Dream – Phaedra (1974)

Phaedra is possibly the most well known Tangerine Dream record. Its appearance as a path-diverging choice in the mindfuck that was Bandersnatch (Black Mirror’s feature length choose-your-own adventure) has no doubt contributed to its resurgence.

Over the last few months I have listened to an original mix and then the Steve Wilson remaster, including the additional outtakes and alternative versions that were presented in that remaster package. I’m not too fussed on the extra takes, but I would agree that Steve Wilson’s remaster is the superior version. I would love however to get an original copy of Phaedra on vinyl or cassette, and maybe my opinion on which version is better will change.
