Kim Robertson - Wind Shadows Vol 2 (1983)

This is NOT Valley of the Sun or Great American audio, but it is too good for me not to put up. I was with a friend of mine at a thrift store in her town, and I went searching through their CDs, hoping I'd find some new age music - And I got what I expected! It's great sounding harp music from excellent harp player Kim Robertson- Take a listen for yourself!

Karl Schaffner - Pagan (1993)

Here's a rare one, I've never even heard of this one before! It's always nice to discover a new Schaffner album, Here's what I think about it.

Track 1: One 2 Seven- Almost reminds me of Jam Hammer's Miami Vice theme, pretty funky synth stuff here. Very 80s sounding.
Track 2: Bluebodies - A tribal/jungle feel to this one. Pretty cool. Gets really good with guitars more than halfway in.
Track 3: Starbound - Reminds me of music from a late 1990s Playstation or N64 game. It's pretty good.
Track 4: Serpent - More tribal drums. gets a little boring though.
Track 5: Fancy Dancer - My favorite track on this release. Nice guitar work.

This is clearly not a new age album to meditate to, but a pretty funky album with some world music influences. I suggest checking it out, great background music for working and such,

Steve Gruskin - Interludes : Thunder and Waves (1991)

Steve Gruskin with another Interludes release. This one is a different pace and has brass fanfares in it. I would not reccomend this one for meditation, but for work or study (or background music for the house) would be great use for this CD.

Steve Gruskin - Interludes - Mountain Stream

Part 3 of my CD gifts! Another Interludes album, this time with sounds of a mountain stream and beautiful harp music with other instruments. A must have! Part 2 is my favorite out of the two parts.

Steve Gruskin - Interludes: Babbling Brook

Part 2 of my Holiday CD gifts! A great Interludes CD I've had my eye on for a while. Beautiful electronic music, flutes, harp and more, set to the sounds of a bubbly brook. Gruskin's Interludes series  always promises, and this one doesn't let down!

Musical Sounds of Relaxation - Mystic Harp by Carol Emanuel (1989)

Part 1 of my Holiday CD gift! I have 3 other albums to post here as well! The first one is a beautiful mixture of harp and other instrumentals, a wonderful tool for meditation and sleep by skilled harpist Carol Emanuel.

The Sounds Of Nature - Four Seasons (1988)

"The soothing sounds of the four seasons: Spring - gentle rain, Summer - frogs, crickets and ducks in a summer ambience, Fall - breeze in the trees, birds chirping, Winter - a snow storm. The sounds of the seasons will tend to calm and relax you as you identify with the wonders of each season. A beautiful aid to visualization, and ideal for blocking out environmental noises and distractions."

Four Seasons (1988)

Another great nature recording. 4 tracks are included on this release, each sounds taken in a forest in each of the four seasons, Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall - and what a nice recording it is. I find myself listening to the "Winter" recording while sipping hot chocolate in a blanket.
