It would be a tragedy if this album goes out of print

"A friend played this album for me in 1991 -- on mint-condition vinyl -- and I was so stunned by the beauty of the music that I ran out and purchased a copy on CD, even though I had yet to purchase my first CD player. "Silk Road Suite" was an incredible improvement on the synthesiser-drive album "Silk Road" because it was recorded with the London Symphony Ochestra. I now own 11 Kitaro albums (and saw Kitaro live in 1999 in Albuquerque, New Mexico), and this remains my favorite. I listen to the back-to-back songs "Peace" and "Journey" to begin meditations. Whenever I play this CD at my office, people invitably ask, "Who is that?" and "Where can I get a copy?" It's too bad there are no longer song samples for this album. A good comparison might be the orchestration of "Kojiki," although "Silk Road Suite" is generally a gentler album. I plan on obtaining a second copy, for fear my single CD copy may develop a glitch and become unplayable."
The magical best cd of Kitaro

"In this CD Kitaro explodes the magical and misterious ways of the life. Songs like Peace or Bell Tower have the particularity of move our mind to another place."
