I've known and loved this music most of my life, 17 Oct 2008
I first listened to this music on my father's original vinyl, when I was a child. Over the years, I've since bought my own copy of the vinyl as well as the CD. I'm not going to get into any technical sound differences as they're not really material to me in this instance. The music is variously haunting and uplifting, and it will certainly transport you to another time and place when you sit and listen to it. And it does deserve quiet sitting and listening, if it's the first time you've heard it. If you can read music and are so inclined, hunting out a piano transcription and reading (or even playing along, if you're talented!) as you listen is quite a fun exercise.
