The name to this album was inspired by a quote from Caesar and the album follows in the footsteps of the extremly successful recording "Phaedra".
"Rubycon" featured much the same instrumentation as "Phaedra". It also showed a certain distance to mainstream rock, in that it was a suite in two parts, taking up two entire sides of the album - as did Mike Oldfield's mid-'70s albums "Tubular Bells", "Hergest Ridge" and "Ommadawn" which were released by Virgin as well.
"Rubycon" is an album released in 1975 by Tangerine Dream. It is widely regarded as one of their best albums. "Rubycon" further develops the Berlin School sequencer-based sound they ushered in with the title track from "Phaedra".
