Autumn - George Winston


  1. I thank you dear Ray. I really like the music of George Winston and listened to it this morning as I ate my breakfast.


  2. I love it too, and I have that 12-inch LP here, as well as:-

    * December (1982)
    * Winter Into Spring (1982)
    * Ballads and Blues (1972)

    Also from Windham Hill Productions, I have:-

    The first "A Winter's Solstice" (1985) [there are now five or more in the series]
    William Ackerman - "Conferring with the Moon" (1986)

    I was pleasantly surprised to find most of these on YouTube when I looked.
    Being "New Age" music, I hadn't thought to look on there for some reason.

    I'm glad you enjoy it too. It's lovely music, and a nice change from
    the usual thump-thump-thump and bang-bang-bang.

    There was some interesting stuff done back in the seventies, and I only
    have one or two of those left around here now. One is called
    Tibetan Bells II by Henry Wolff and Nancy Hennings (1981)

    I had several others along that same kind, but a few years ago,
    I went through my collection, and weeded out about 150 or so
    that I felt I would probably never play again, and of course,
    now that I've had time to think all that over, I sometimes wish
    I hadn't been so hasty. But they didn't go to waste.
    At the time, we had a spot on the first level of our underground
    garages where we could leave things that others might want, and
    I was told later that several people here really appreciated the
    free records. So those didn't end up in a land fill.
