Machu Picchu is one of the more intimate projects by Tangerine Dream – not planned for a release during the composing and recording process. It is an homage to a man who – like no other person in the business – had ‘created’ TD´s career from a distance many years ago, believing in their talent and extraordinary skills. His name was John Peel. The background story and atmospheric influence of this one-piece, 42-minute composition came to life after this music driven character and long-time BBC progressive pioneer passed away in October 2004, in the city of Cusco (Peru) close to the sacred Inca site Machu Picchu.  Originally not made available until 2012, and then only on CD/Digital, Machu Picchu will be released exclusively for Record Store Day 2019 on yellow vinyl. Edgar also wrote about John and their 1974 encounter in London in his autobiography ‘Force Majeure’; the chapter in question (‘The John Peel Files’) reprinted in a booklet within this package. Tangerine Dream owe John their international career. Edgar wanted to say thank you with this album, composed especially for John.
