My wedding songs

"Back in 1990, I received the CD as a gift from a friend. I liked the songs so much that I played the songs in my wedding banquet. Up until now I could not find a replacement for the friend. Being confused by the descriptions, I just now ordered two replacements, just in case:

1. Tranquil Moods: Drift Away
Various Artists

2. Drift Away
Hadley Hockensmith"
Serene beauty

"I've had this album recorded in a tape for a long time but I had to grow a bit older to really enjoy it in its whole dimension. Anyway I keep on thinking since then the best tracks are the two magic 'Lullaby', a very elegant and beautiful guitar ballad full of feeling and inspiration, and the best one, undoubtedly, the last track, 'Deborah Lea'. I don't know if Deborah is Hadley's wife or whatever but has to be a really important person for him, as this song is as beautiful and magic as a song can be. At the start there's an atmosphere of perfect serenity and peace, in which a strange 'horn' keyboard sound appears drawing loosely some melodies. The song is haunting and recalls a really intimate and happy moment full of peace and serenity. This track is class and so is the rest of the album, ranging between soft jazz and just new age guitar music. Very recommendable for people who like soft jazz but not the cold one but with a bit of heart in it."
I wish he would produce another recording like this one.

"I first heard about Hadley Hockensmith back in the early 80's. He was an instrumentalist on many of my favorite Christian albums. Then I discovered the jazz band Kononia that he played with. In 1986 I found the "Heart Songs" casette and bought it. I immediately fell in love with it. It put me in another world. I played the casatte so much that I completely wore it out. So that year I had to buy another one. Then I started to allow my friends and family to hear the casette. Everyone who was allowed to borrow it would just keep it for themselves. I had to buy another copy of this recording at least 15-20 times over the past 18 years back in 2001 when my last CD was taken from me I searched the internet for about 1.5 years until I was able to find another original one. This one will never leave me again."
