''Alpha Centauri'' (1971) is an album by the German electronic music group Tangerine Dream. The music on this album is quite different from Tangerine Dream’s first album ''Electronic Meditation'', due to a heavier reliance on keyboards and electronic technology, although they still mostly remain in the background: the dominant instruments on the album are organ and flute. The shift in instrumentation still resulted in an atmosphere dubbed by Edgar Froese himself as Kosmische musik.

This album sold 20,000 copies in their native Germany, nearly four times as many as their later classic ''Phaedra''.

A nowadays extremely rare single "Ultima Thule" was released in the same year. Side 1 employs the same guitar riff as "Fly ...", but the single was at the time otherwise an unconnected release. Re-releases of Alpha Centauri in the 2000s have however included either or both parts of Ultima Thule as bonus tracks. - Wikipedia
