Passages

Like Silk Road Journeys, Passages (by Ravi Shankar & Philip Glass) is good background & meditation music, and also good musical representation of musical diversity. Unlike Journeys, Passages is vaguely mythological. The final track, Prashanti (Peacefulness), describes the mini-myth of a village becoming slowly corrupt, and rescued from samsara by...

Rabbit Ears Treasury of Storybook Classics

From AudioFile Two classics feature well-loved comedians. In the first, Robin Williams adopts the voice of an old cowboy telling the story of Pecos Bill.

Rabbit Ears Treasury of Fairy Tales and Other Stories

From AudioFile This collection of fairy tales brings together some wonderful stories. Though technically well done, however, each somehow comes up short. Although all the narrators read clearly and with some emotion, the overall effect is flat. In each story, the pacing is almost too slow for listeners (especially children)...

A Planet with One Mind

Rabbit Ears Treasury of Fables and Other Stories

Familiar fables find new meaning with celebrity performances. Holly Hunter and Art Lande perform "The Three Billy Goats Gruff" and "The Three Little Pigs" in an upbeat, playful style. Repeated tunes and the use of accents differentiate characters, and there's adult-pleasing humor in both stories. Tangerine Dream's dreamy strains are...

Silk Road Journeys: When Strangers Meet

No particular connection to Campbell's work. In fact, no mythological pretext whatsoever. But anybody with a creative mind will notice that differences in music are inexorably linked to similarities in music, just as in world mythology. Good music for background or meditation.
