This is the seminal "new age" lp

"In 1964 a San Francisco d.j. played Brad Miller recorded sound effects on one turntable and an instrumental on the other. The phones lit up, listeners love it, and the Mystic Moods Orchestra was the ultimate result. Released in early 1966, "One Stormy Night" was the first of twenty plus MMO releases. Through many years and at least four record labels "One Stormy Night" is a favorite of many middle aged music fans who made love to the sonic mixtre of rain, thunder, trains, and a number of other ambient sound effects, skillfully combined with the lush orchestral efforts of Brad Miller & Don Ralke's studio group. The MMO sold millions of records through the years and though this was the first album it wasn't the best. "One Stormy Night" remains a sentimental favorite even though "Nighttide", "Stormy Weekend" and "More Than Music" were superior, yet with this effort a star was born. Many folks now alive in their twenties and thirties owe their conception (quite literally) to the romantic spells cast by the Mystic Moods Orchestra and "One Stormy Night". The best of the Mystic Moods catalog have been long out of print. The orchestra that it seems no one has ever heard of has enough fans that their lps and cds (especially if they remain factory sealed) command hefty prices when they turn up on e-auctions. The best of the MMO remain rare and precious to those who have tender memories of their youths and loves of long ago. While "One Stormy Night" does not represent the very best of the Mystic Moods Orchestra, it is certainly good enough scarf up if you are lucky enough to acquire a copy. Sadly, Brad Miller (the co-founder of Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs) died in 1998 of cancer. Unless those who own the rights to the MMO catalog have access to the master tapes and decide to give them new life with re-issues, the surviving copies will continue to command collectors prices. I have copies of OSN on lp,cassette, and cd and I would't part with any of them."

"I've been enjoying this "album x3' tape x2, untill they won't play anymore. My first one was purchased in 1967. It is the most relaxing collection of sound I have ever owned. The combination of the beaitiful music, the sounds of the storm in the background and the effect of horses troting all combined treat the senses in away that meditation does. Try this musical treat and you'll never forget it. I'm trying to find another copy with in my affordability range. Till then I can only depend on my memory."
