    I think that might be the only thing I have of his in my collection, but as samplers go, it's a winner.

    The Oak Of The Golden Dreams, The Pavilion Of Dreams, The Serpent (In Quicksilver), The Plateaux Of Mirror (with Eno) and Abandoned Cities are his favourite works of mine. Spent hours and hours of listening session on these ones. A very sad loss.

    A very unique voice in modern music.

    A sad loss...

    I have a ton of his wonderful music in my collection due to his proximity to Eno. Another musical giant struck down before their time by the f*cking COVID. 😭

    No one has mentioned my favorite Harold Budd album yet: By The Dawn's Early Light. Bill Nelson on electric and acoustic guitars, B.J. Cole on steel guitar, Mabel Wong on viola and Susan Allen on harp. Several tracks are short poems, which I have always skipped. But the majority of the album is instrumental, and Budd lets his guests do most of the "heavy lifting". I've owned a lot of Budd's albums over the years, but this one is my clear favorite.

    Yes, that album is just what you say; I too usually skip the poems but perhaps I should revisit them.

    I've never heard of this one - I'll have to check it out.

    I haven't been on PE in a while.RIP to a master, Harold Budd.

    Coming up with a favorite Budd cd is difficult (for me).

    Damn, another lost to COVID ... I just went through a bit of a blitz buying everything I didn't have that he was selling on Bandcamp. I'm glad I did, what I didn't have (not much...I've been a fan for four decades) is very, very good.

    But damn, I'll miss him.

    I just picked up "Another Flower," his last with Guthrie, recorded in 2013 and just now released on Bandcamp. It's gorgeous, beautiful stuff.
    If you're actually reading this then chances are you already have my last album but if NOT and you're curious:

    I credit listening to Eno for putting me on the path to discovering Harold. I was lucky to see Harold perform at the Toledo (Ohio) Museum of Art in the summer of 2018. May he create heavenly music forever.
