Not heard this for years - CD was on ebay for 3.04.
   Sounds great on new hifi - textures sound amazing.
Recorded in 1971....

Currently saving up for a new amp so not buying much new music.
   So exploring my collection in a different way - listening to different artists music in release order.
Currently working through Micheal Stearns - Sustaining Cylinders, Baraka, Planetary Unfolding and Sacred Site...
Also Light in the Trees - from the Amplexus 3"CD releases

Sustaining Cylinders is underrated IMO. It might be the best of his pre-Planetary Unfolding stuff.

Rymo - Kinetic

I got to see them perform live last Saturday (Live music! With an audience!) at the Ritz Theater in Encinitas and it was a terrific show. Also an excellent fusion album.

Frank Zappa - Zappa in New York
The 5-cd extravaganza, I'm still wading through it, but the sound quality is amazing, the performances are vintage Zappa and the band is top-notch. I'm just waiting on the release of the Last US Show '88 compilation next month. The Zappa Family Trust has at least 2 more releases planned for 2021, so it's a good year to be a FZ fan.
There is no spoon. Which sucks because I have a pudding cup.

I really enjoyed listening to the album, especially the subtle manipulations of the ocean sounds.
