Anybody here a fan?  I'm looking for album recommendations -- I note he has a lot of stuff, and while much of it as sold on his site is inexpensive (and hopefully on true CD and not CDR), I wasn't sure where to begin ...

Came across this today ... scroll down for a little feature on one of Forrest's forgotten classics:

Some of us wouldn't mind owning a copy of this one, Forrest!  Any copies lying around the garage?

I'm surprised nobody's brought this sad topic up yet.

Anybody out there able to fill me in on why this fine label decided to close up shop?  I've not seen M. Bentley around these parts in a while ...

Other Ambient (and related) Music / SPV Popol Vuh remasters
« on: December 18, 2008, 01:17:19 PM »
I have the lousy Spalax CD issues of the terrific mid-period Popol Vuh albums (Das Hohelied Salomos etc.), and they appear to be recorded from vinyl, as many Spalax discs were.  Anybody have the new SPV reissues done a few years ago who can offer commentary?  I was pleased with the sound quality of the Popol Vuh discs put out by Ohr/ZYX, but I don't want to put down the cash to replace the Spalax ones unless there's a distinct improvement of quality from SPV....

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Faria "sale" @ Soleilmoon
« on: April 14, 2008, 08:07:22 AM »
Just noticed that Soleilmoon's put a lot of the older Faria releases on sale.  Good opportunity to pick up Oöphoi's Dreams series ($7 a pop) amongst other stuff.

They also now have Gigi's An Aerial View, for those waiting for domestic distro.  ;)

Not sure if I've ever plugged my little project here on the Forum before.  Well, anyway, I've been doing ambient podcasts since 2005, and I figure if the people of any place will enjoy them it's you guys.  I've done eighteen episodes so far, all certainly music that will appeal to the "typical" Hypnos-phile.

Newest episode features underrated and obscure ambient tracks, with some by Hypnos and related artists.  Thanks for looking!

Whatever happened to this ambient artist?  The last CD was 2003's excellent Enviro!
