"Listening to DEPARTURES is like floating up into the clouds and flying free! Every track has a peaceful, pleasurable divine sweetness to it that warms my heart. All of John's cds are gorgeous, but I feel DEPARTURES is the best representation of the wondrous beauty of the rare harp guitar. Why? Because the harp guitar is the main instrument and is backed delicately with different instruments; sometimes flute, tin whistle, violin, viola, cello, piano, celeste, gregorian chant, and soprano, alto, tenor and bass vocals--yet they don't distract in any way from John only enhance his playing. Just perfectly Lovely. Buy this while you can because it isn't easy to get. If you enjoy delicate, inspiring, instrumental music, you will not be disappointed. DEPARTURES is Exquisite. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Total running time is 45:30 but just hit repeat and you can soar as long as you want! ^_^
Here are the track listings (since they currently aren't viewable:)
1 Tra Amici
2 Leaving Dun Laoghaire (you begin to float up...)
3 Wings of the Morning (you're up and beginning your journey)
4 Visit to Heaven (Flying full speed, you slow down while gasping as the beauty unfolds...)
5 Winter's Eve (through lush, exotic gardens to majestic, snow-covered mountains you keep soaring...)
6 Beloved (no worries, just peace surrounding you above, below, beside, around and inside everywhere and everything!)
7 Night Crossing (...including you...)
8 AnthemSOAR!"
Beautiful, Peaceful and Worthwhile

"I know it was over 15 yrs ago...I was driving down the road one night, heard this mesmerizing song called Night Crossing. That's all the DJ said. I went through a lot of effort to find out more because I had to have that music. When I did find out the artist and title, I had to special order it. All these years later, I still have that cassette and the music is just as good, if not better. I should upgrade to a CD though don't you think!?
Maybe it's a little difficult to get a hold of, but it's worth it. Relax, unwind and leave the planet."
