Nick Lowe I previously had this as an Amazon mp3, and the difference in quality is startling. Northland Wind was already a 24-carat classic and a strong candidate for the most beautiful thing he's ever done (though Harmonia Mundi now runs it close), but this version is a revelation, with a depth and clarity that feel like you've grown a dozen new ears. Accept no substitute. Stupendous. Favorite track: Northland Wind.

Originally released in 1998.

Soundscapes with rhythms.

Again these are four pieces, "forgotten" for a long time, chosen because of none has lost its spirit since the years.
Tracks 1 and 4 are deep emotional reflections of fascinating Northern landscapes. Tracks 2 and 3 are much longer on original recording and without rhythm. These two pieces are description of mankind's spiritual-body, inspired by philosophics of the Cypriot Daskalos.
