George Winston - Plains (1999)

Great piano solo album by George Winston. This is the original 1999 release of it, and this album features some songs composed by Winston himself. Not much else to say about it except that it's charming piano music, nice to listen to for background music. Found this CD at a thrift store.

Soothing Sounds - Stormy Weather (2002)

I don't remember ever getting this album, but I believe I borrowed it from my library a while back and ripped it to my computer. It's a  nice album, features piano, sax and some other instruments with the sounds of rain in the background. It's a bit more melodic and dramatic than most of the releases here, and I wouldn't recommend it for meditation or yoga. The music definitely does make you think of a bad thunderstorm!

Gervay Briot - Himalaya (1991)

Another Gervay Briot album, more great ambient music from this obscure artist! Special thanks to TheHahadoctor for sending me this. Some of it is minimal/drone, which is always great to hear. Very peaceful and soothing.

You've been waiting a long time to hear this....
Well it's finally here! David Storrs' rare 1984 album Channel For The Light has now been found! I had contact with someone who said they owned the tape a few years back but they never came through, I'm glad to say that it is now part of our collection.

David Ison - Ison Sleep System: Sleep & Relax (2009)

I usually don't like listening to new age recording from past 2003, as I have always thought that electronic music began to decline rapidly after that year. (Music from now-a-days, forget it. That garbage is a mockery of good electronic music.) However, this 2009 album by David Ison is PERFECT. Perfect as in it's relaxing, beautiful, and it really helps me fall asleep. I love listening to all of my collection when I lie in bed, but this one seems to help me fall asleep faster than all the others. Just listen- You'll love it.
