Upper Astral's "Skybirds" Re-released?
It seems to be true, I saw it on Sutphen's website. I wonder if that means we can hear a digitally remastered version of that great album?
"Metaphysical Music by Upper Astral with Subliminal Suggestions by Dick Sutphen
Track 1:Skybirds is structured for you to transcend levels of consciousness, soaring high above the earth as a bird. Seagulls, the sound of the surf, and an acoustic grand piano are used with a synthesizer which creates soaring arpeggios and subtle French horn-like sounds. You’ll feel like you are circling, circling and soaring through a vast emptiness of beautiful music that supports you and soothes your soul. Subliminal voices are saying, “up, up, higher, higher, fly with me,” and similar phrases.
Track 2: Seagulls and surf are combined with an “Ohm”-sounding synthesizer bed and a gentle, melodic French-horn sound to create a soothing, sustained environment."
