Just one listen changed my life

"I was once a punk rocker. I listened to the Sex Pistols, Ramones, Black Flag, and The Dead Kennedys. I have a string of gigs under my belt with various punk bands, a long list of one night stands with rocker chicks, and did enough drugs to make Keith Richards OD. All that changed the night I listened to Zamfir.
Alone in my apartment I played this CD while cleaning a puke staine off my carpet. I don't know whose it was, but I'd like to thank him because it led me to my new life. I have since thrown away my guitars, amps, and entire music collection. It is all garbage by comparison to this and in the trash is where it all belongs.
How can anyone listen to 'Summer of 42' and not fall to their knees by the sheer beauty of it? The Lonely Shepard title track brings tears to my eyes everytime I listen to it. It brings me to a magical place where no one gets arrested for shoplifting and everyone has peace in their hearts.
I cannot find a panflute at the music store, so I'm trying to make one out of PVC pipe and old bongs. I think I found the G, A, and D major chords, but can't quite find F. A silly straw with a slit in it can make a pretty decent B minor, but it stretches out after a couple of days.
All my friends have abandoned me and I haven't been with a woman in three months, but it is all worth it. I now happily skip through life with merriment in my heart. No more drugs for me, Zamfir is my natural high."
Excellent musician, mediocre album

"I found that while some of the tracks (including the title track Lonely Shepherd) were really excellent, others bordered on elevator music. In my opinion, Zamfir is best when he plays by himself, rather than backed by schmaltzy orchestra music on covers of broadway songs. Nevertheless, I'm still glad I got the album for the tracks I do like -- I can always skip the others."
Better than heavy metal

"Before hearing the Zamfir, I was getting kind of deep into heavy metal. I found the pan flute to be quite the bad... instrument, and one that I can relate to much more than the ordinary/dull sound of an electric guitar."
