Steve Gruskin: Interludes - Gentle Rain (1991)

Another great release from the Interludes: Soothing Sounds of Nature and Music series! Relaxing rain, sounds of the harp and synthesizers make up this release. A definite listening is advised and using this to help you relax or sleep is great!

Steve Gruskin - Interludes: Dancing Waters (1991)

Another great release from GAA, an edition of the Interludes: Soothing Sounds of Nature and Music series. Beautiful synth and harp sounds to the sound of waves spraying against the rocks of the ocean. A must hear for new age fans!

Dick Sutphen - Awakened Dreaming (1986)

Body relaxation tape by Dick Sutphen from 1986, has music in the background but I am not sure who the artist is. The music does not sound like any of the Valley of The Sun artists I know of.  Enjoy.

Dick Sutphen - Expansion of Psychic Abilities (1976)

Hypnosis tape by Dick Sutphen, featuring more metronome in the background. From 1976, released on cassette. This might be his first release, as Sutphen started his practices of self help tapes in 1976.

Dick Sutphen - Vision Inducing (1977)

An early meditation tape from Dick Sutphen with a metronome in the background. One of the earliest tapes that has been put up on this site.

No cover art found

Steve Gruskin - Hymns By The Sea: Gentle Waves

Hello. I'm back with another release from Steve Gruskin, who worked on the Interludes series. This is Hymns By the Sea: Gentle Waves, a collection of Religious songs done in harp and synth with waves in the background. It is nice to listen to.
