Why have Virgin omitted the handclaps from the re-master of this classic album?.They used to sit at the start of the second track, or start of side 2 in vinyl days.Probably they would have necessitated a "third" track listing for simply 3 seconds of sound,on cd.Ricochet was semi-concept in that the music showed back and forth themes and movement throughout the album as in a ricochet,ie;the voices and stereo effects.The handclaps showed this in its simplest form,and now they're gone!.

This is my favourite album by The Tangs. Produced during their classic 70's period for the Virgin label, the band were at their peak of their compositional and improvisational powers. Made up from hours of live material, the two pieces here work beautifully as stand alone compositions. They evolve and flow effortlessly with the listeners attention span never faltering throughout.
The beauty of Tangerine Dream is not just in their revolutionary use of electronic instrumentation, but how they mix that with more traditional, acoustic instruments to produce an organic sound, something not purely electronic. The use of mellotron gives a haunting quality, particularly the use of flute sounds in part 2. Edgar Froese's trademark Les Paul guitar sound is heard to good effect in part 1. In fact Froese is such a good guitar player. Listen to his wonderful solo on "Magic Lantern" from the "Beyond the Storm" compilation to see what I mean. The use of percussion too is important in setting the dramatic tone of this album.
The line-up of Froese, Baumann and Franke worked wonderfully and their potential is fully realised on this album. The intuition between each player is spellbinding and it must have been something special to behold within a live setting.
This period which produced such albums as "Phaedra", "Rubycon" and "Stratosfear" clearly indicate that the band have left a lasting legacy of important musical statements, which not only show how Tangerine Dream were crucial in the evolution of electronic instrumentation and music in the 70's, but also how they wrote some of the most breathtaking music of that period.

"Ricochet" was Tangerine Dream's first live album (even though "Electronic Meditation" represents a single jamming session, it hardly counts as a live album), recorded during the group's tour of the UK and France in 1975. At this time, Tangerine Dream were setting new standards for live popular music-making. Firstly, they were played in unusual venues (mostly cathedrals) before an audience who sat and listened. And secondly, TD's music was more concerned with larger-scale structures and long-term development than most other pop or rock music, even back then at the height of rock's 'concept album' era. This latter characteristic was never more noticeable than in the group's live concerts. Froese, Franke and Baumann would habitually perform long sets, with all musical material being improvised from the start of the concert to the finish. (They would often not even decide until they came on stage what key the music would start in!)
By 1975, too, the band had received sufficient financial recompense from their recording successes to have equipped themselves with an impressive array of (largely) custom kit, making them capable of producing sounds that no-one else at the time could come even close to emulating. Almost 25 years down the road, the music obviously isn't such a novelty any more, but it remains every bit as vibrant-and unique-as it ever was. And this album shows just how comfortable-and brilliant-the three were when working together in front of an audience. The music-making here appears to be so effortless and is truly captivating, even now.
Following the group's usual live performance practice, "Ricochet" plays as two continuous sets with just one break-for the old vinyl side-change.

Ricochet is the so called live album following Tangerine Dream's tour of 1975.
By then, the band had enjoyed considerable success here in the UK with their previous two albums 'Phaedra' and 'Rubycon' which had made the top ten and top twenty respectively over here. The music on 'Ricochet' is previously unreleased music, specially written for the tour, so this is by no means a live 'greatest hits' package.
The way the album is put together is nothing like a live package, so you have to view 'Ricochet' almost as a studio album. I'm not even convinced that this music was recorded exclusively live. It sounds too good and the production is way too slick for it to be lifted wholesale from a live show or two. I'm willing to bet there's been more than a few tweeks here and there in the studio.
As for the music itself, it's a far cry from the improvised freeform experimentation of the first handful of Tangerine Dream albums. It's also considerably more accessible than the studio knob twiddlings of the previous two releases.
Yes, there are mellotrons and sequencers aplenty, lots of moods and atmospheres and more than enough to keep the die hards happy. Where 'Ricochet' differs from usual Dream fare is that we have more percussion/rythmn, electric guitars and pianos that show that indeed the musicians in this band can actually play a bit. Moreover, there's more going on musically in terms of melodies and tunes.
'Ricochet part 1' has a glorious, synthesizer opening, before we get some guitar and drums. Then the sequencers kick in, and we have a lovely, flowing piece of music.
