Inside the Great Pyramid

"I can't thank Amazon enough for my CD "Inside the Great Pyramid" by Paul Horn. I have been looking for this CD for amost 3 years now and am very happy that I kept placing my wish order with Amazon. The music is remarkable and uplifting as it was recorded inside the Great Pyramid. It is very spiritual and healing and wonderful for meditations. Recently, I have been going through a dark time in my life, but I listen to my CD every evening before I go to bed and the sun has been shining every morning. God Bless"
Part One of the Original

"For anyone who is familiar with Paul Horn's landmark "Inside 1 and 2" albums
(1 is "Inside the Taj Mahal" and "Inside 2" is flute with dolphins and weird electronics,
that you can get separately or on One CD release of both);these sounds were a breakthrough
in an Etherial Inspired Spiritual trek in music at it's best; this follow up in the "Inside"
series is a Gem; this time M.Horn does the chanting himself and the sounds he creates
"Inside the Great Pyramid" of Gizeh are stunning; he has to adjust his flutes because
the Pyramid "bends the sound" by half an octave or so. It's flute improvisation that
you just cannot get enough or tired of; the only reason I bought this version is because
it has the original artwork with a thick booklet of pictures and explanations of this unusual
journey in which he successfully convinced the Egyptian government to allow him one night
inside the pyramid, I believe he was the first to succeed; the original double vinyl
was embossed in gold. The newer release has a different cover.
I have the original vinyl Double Album and the reason I only gave it 4 stars is that
this earlier CD version contains only Disc One of the Original 1977 release; half the music is missing!
You only know this if you've heard it before; why they chose to put only half the music
on this version is beyond me (marketing strategy?).
This version contains 3 sections: Initiation, Meditation and Enlightenment (62.40 minutes, which is great)
but there are three more sections on the original double album named: Fulfillment, Resurrection and Eternity:
20 more tracks! The subsequent re-issue contains all 40 tracks and I found it at Amazon.ca
62 minutes is still very good but there is double the content on the second CD release
advertised: "with previously unreleased tracks"; it's rare and expensive but well worth it
if you enjoy Paul Horn's mystical approach with the Flute.
A Masterpiece really!
and thanks for making it available for a collector such as myself.
