This one?s a little off the beaten path for us, but take this journey with us and you?ll find something beautiful. Alan Watts probably did more than any other single person to bridge the gap between Eastern and Western philosophies and religion, publishing countless books and putting out several albums, of which this was his first, released by Warner Brothers in 1967. This record is sort of like having your friendly neighborhood British mystic over for tea; Watts was nothing if not a showman, and as he charmingly discourses on methods of meditation and Hindu beliefs over droning Indian accompaniment, the effect is simultaneously soothing and compelling, almost hypnotic. This is not just a curio of the psychedelic ?60s, though collectors of that ilk will definitely want to check this out; Watts was a man of great substance and that comes through loud (well, not so loud) and clear. Includes 'Om; Tambouras for Meditation', and 'Readings from Hindu Scriptures. ' A different kind of 'Collectors? Choice Music 'exclusive, released here with brand-new notes by 'Turning Wheel Magazine' editor Susan Moon!

"This is one of the best Alan Watts CDs. I have heard it hundreds of times and it never gets boring. Alan Watts was one of the greatest philosopers and Zen and Buddhist philosophy experts of the last century. The sound of his voice alone, even if you would not understand the words is transmitting so much wisdom and humor... I never get tired of listening to him and I have been listening to Alan Watts for 23 years!!!"
Listen down, down into that sound..

"Alan Watts is an enlightened mind, and this is delicious morsel, and by morsel I do mean that: a delicious bite-sized morsel of blissful peace and centered contentment.
I only wish it were longer!"
