This is excellent. I've been listening to this exact lineup since the 80s and still enjoy falling asleep to it or reading. T'was the beginning of a golden age in a break from saccharine "new age" for more experimental meditative works that still influences quieter sounds today.

I totally agree. 80s were when I really fell in love with ambient. I remembering pestering friends and roommates by trying to turn them on to what I'd discovered. Most just looked at me like I was a bit crazy. But it was one of a few turning points for me musically. Thanks for listening.

Hola,
Gracias por este momento de calma y relajación. Me encanta mi ciudad de Lima, pero esto es una ciudad, o el ruido y la contaminación están presentes día y noche. Gracias por permitirme estos maravillosos momentos de relax, para el cuerpo y la mente. Saludos cordiales desde Lima Perú

Really nice... I am glad to discover some of these, I guess I was too busy playing with my toys back in the 80's to pay attention to these great pieces!!

Haha! My toys in the 80s were a reel-to-reel tape deck for poor man's echo effects, and cheap casio keyboard and beer.
