^ Yes, I think you were more active in the music threads here in an era that many of today's members didn't witness. When I was an MB newbie you were already a venerable expert - which is why I, like several others, was surprised to discover that you're still in your twenties.

Anyway, I don't know the Paul Horn album you mentioned, but I used to have a copy of his Cleopatra album which is perhaps similar. I suppose before the term New Age was invented, proto new age was bubbling up in various places: the quieter moments of prog, Paul Horn's soft jazz that you mention, electronica probably, and for me personally, this album by John Fahey, which at one time I used to listen to night after night to de-stress from my working day. It's still beautiful, still takes me to a special place:-

Did you ever hear of having more than you wanted? So that you couldn’t want anything else and then started looking for something else to want? It seems like we’re always searching for something to satisfy us, and never finding it. - Susan Eloise Hinton, 1967
