Tangerine Dream is a German electronic music band founded in 1967 by Edgar Froese. The group has seen many personnel changes over the years, with Froese having been the only continuous member until his death in January 2015. The best-known lineup of the group was its mid-1970s trio of Froese, Christopher Franke, and Peter Baumann. In 1979, Johannes Schmoelling replaced Baumann.

Tangerine Dream is considered a pioneering act in electronica.

I first encountered their music around 1983 at the used record shop near the University of Dayton, Second-Time Around.

Two of the first albums I encountered were their UK top 20 albums Phaedra (1974), which was mind expanding, and Rubycon (1975) was a favorite album.

One of Tangerine Dream's early members was Klaus Schulze.
