Stuntman is the fifth solo album released by Tangerine Dream leader Edgar Froese, in 1979. [1]

Froese later remixed the album and released it with a new cover. [2]

The album utilizes much the same instruments and equipment heard on Froese's previous albums; electric guitar, Moog Synthesizer (including sequencer), Mellotron, PPG 340/360, and other keyboards. On this release there are six tracks (originally three to each side of an LP) instead of two side-long tracks as found on, for example, his album Epsilon in Malaysian Pale (1975).[ citation needed ]
