Format: Audio CD
I first came across the name Michael Hoenig when I acquired a copy of the incredible Tangerine Dream concert at the Royal Albert Hall in April 1975. Peter Baumann was off again and into his shoes stepped Michael for this gig and a tour of Australia. It was only after I had followed the trail of a few TD lists on Amazon that I found a recommendation for this CD, a wonderful gem of Berlin school electronica. There is beautifully intricate sequencing on three of the tracks, the much more abstract Voices of Where (complete with reversed speech) being the exception. All the tracks will bring tears of joy to any die-hard 70s TD fan who hasn't discovered DftNW yet - I can't say honestly that I wept but I do wear a very sloppy grin every time I play it.
And one more thought for those of you who love alternative history ... This album was produced in 1977 just as Peter Baumann was finally cutting his ties and breaking up the quintessential (IMHO) TD line-up. What might have been if, instead of the disastrous Cyclone group, Edgar had persuaded Michael Hoenig to make up the numbers? How many more classics might we still be listening to?

Mention the name Michael Hoenig to anybody but the most hardcore of Tangerine Dream fans and you will be greeted with total unawareness. Those who enjoy early TD, but have not yet heard this album, are missing out on an underestimated classic.
Take the 'where-has-the-last-20-minutes-gone' appeal of TD's "Encore" and fuse it with the sequenced ambience of Klaus Schulze and what you'll get is something very similar. The 20min title track, while not very suitable for novice TD-heads, is of such quality I played it 4 times in a row... non-stop! That's how good it is!
Go on, buy this classic!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After the experimental years of the early 1970s, a handful of German musicians were left over to convert what they had learned to a true musical experience. No more floundering around with the strange noises a cement mixer could lend to a recording, but a skilled and knowledgeable use of synthesiser technology of the era. This album is one of the finest examples of a one-hit-wonder concept (Hoenig has had other albums out but they're pretty disposable compared to this), however the original LP cover featuring a swarm of hot air balloons taking to the skies has for some reason been replaced and it loses something for that. Up with Schulze, Schroeder and T Dream.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By DSR VINE VOICE on 28 Sept. 2006
Format: Audio CD
I remember buying this disc on a recommendation in the late seventies. The title track I (incorrectly) thought went on a bit too long at the time (I found Klaus Schulze's tracks excessive too back then) but bought the CD a number of years ago anyway.

Spurred on by his work with Manuel Gottsching (Ashra) and upon reading the previous review, I thought I'd give it another listen and I'm VERY glad I did.

The title track has real movement, the train track sound effects finally explaining to my old brain the sense of *journey*...!!!... It's not too long at all, you just need to give it a bit of time and let the magic flow...

The other tracks also show what a great *recording* member of Tangerine Dream this man could have been. "Hanging Garden Transfer" is very reminiscent of Edgar Froese at his best. Most of "Voices Of Where" sounds like the ending of Rubicon 2 had it been expanded and developed into a proper track. The final track, "Sun And Moon" has been a favourite for years, the sequencers and melodies on top being something to aspire to with my crude keyboard skills..........

SINCERELY RECOMMENDED! This CD deserves more coverage in its field, especially with the recent resergence of interest in seventies electronic music.
