Another live joy from Kitaro,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Daylight Moonlight: Live In Ya (Audio CD)
I am delighted to finally have heard this album after many years searching for it. The concert features many well-known pieces by the composer, plus some that haven't been played for a while. The recording is excellent, and the fact of it being recorded in a temple adds a spiritual dimension to the proceedings. Incidentally, just take a listen to the harmonies when all the monks' voices come in on the opening track - that's a real "hair on the back of the neck" moment for me.
The concert ideally should be seen as a composite work, but standout tracks for me are "Mercury", "Magma" and "Water of Mystery". The closing version of "Heaven and Earth" is quite different from the version on the "Enchanted Evening" album - much more restrained with no overdome electric guitars. IMHO this album is far superior to "Enchanted Evening". Highly recommended.
