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.

1992 reissue

The Sounds of Nature - Forest Sounds (1988) FIXED LINK

Another field recording, this time of a forest. Perfect for helping you sleep.

Four Seasons (I fixed the link, here it is guys)

The Sounds Of Nature - Gentle Rain (1988)

"Listen to the distant crash of thunder during a mountain rainstorm; there is something romantic, soothing and comforting in the sounds. The peaceful sounds of the gentle rain lull you as the essence of the storm clears your mind and refreshes you, invoking a sense of tranquility. The rainstorm can be a beautiful aid for visualization and is ideal for blocking out environmental noises and distractions."

Happy belated Thanksgiving!  We are back again with some nature sound recordings, this is the first of three we just got. This one has nice, relaxing sounds of the rain and thunder, a sound which I have loved using to help me sleep in years past.

Gentle Rain (1988)

It was re-issued in 1992:

Happy Autumn

Hello to everyone who follows this blog.

Just updating to let you know I'm still alive. I do hope to get some more material to post here soon, but right now I do not have anything. I hope everyone is having a good fall.
