A LOST JEWEL (TILL NOW)

(5 out of 5 stars)
"GANDHARVA (meaning: ancient India lesser gods of music or celestial musicians) is an old recording session (1971) involving West Coast people like Gerry Mulligan (RIP), Mike Bloomfield and the two authors. I firstly got it by chance in mysterious ways circa 1975 (on vinyl, needless to say) and I was shocked since the first time I played it: it's a real aural/mystical experience! It had been recorded in a cathedral and this feature would forever make it a special music. Get it, you'll never regret for spending few bucks for such a enlightening experience! Now finally it 's been rereleased on CD coupled w/ their second album A WILD SANCTUARY and we all can enjoy these lost jewels. For all those who like : new age, soft jazz, blues, gospel and psychedelia (all at top level)! But it will be loved by anyone...."
The Foundation of Electronic Music & Production

"Paul Beaver and Bernie Krause were using synthesizers to produce acoustic sound when other lesser artists were making 'cute noises'. You've heard these guys already storming with the Doors, but these two albums show their musical as well as effects skills. No collection of electronic music is complete without these. I await the day their final album, 'All Good Men', is re-released."
The Return of A Past Favorite
Dave Waddell | Lake Forest Park, WA United States | 11/23/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)
"As a teenager in the late 60s & early 70s, I was starting to get hooked on both the psychedelic music from San Francisco and jazz from nearby Detroit and Chicago. I picked up Gandharva for the cover art and because I saw it had both Mike Bloomfield and Gerry Mulligan on it as well as the two best back-up singers of the day, Patrice Holloway and Clydie King.What hooked me were the ethereal organ-backed tunes from the Grace Cathedral. They were my songtrack for going to sleep for months until I found "In a Silent Way" by Miles Davis. The Grace Cathedral tracks alone are worth the purchase of this CD by two synthesizer pioneers. I'd give it 5 stars if the rest of the recordings were at the same remarkable level. Though they're not, they still are very listenable and several are terrific, especially the terrific vocals on "Walkin'""
