Re: Music for Zen Meditation and other Joys 1964

This is the album that made me a Shakuhachi player. I heard it for the first time in about 1979. I was playing electric guitar in a post modern avant-garde punk band called Broken Music in Washington DC, and doing every drug under the sun. Out of curiosity I picked this album in a second hand store... took it home... when it started spinning on my turntable the whole space transformed and I didn't move a muscle until it was over. Next day I called the Japanese Consulate to ask what the heck a Shakuhachi was and where I could get one. They very kindly referred me to a store in West Virginia that sold them. I bought an $80 flute to get going and ordered one from Tom Deaver. They also referred me to a teacher that lived in Maryland, and I sure wish I remembered his name... he was great. A year later or so I sold all my gear, broke up with my then wife, and moved to a community in the mountains to blow and meditate... Eventually I ended up in Japan for three years. It's been a wonderful and deep journey of over twenty years.. thanks to that album... I still love it! (by the way, while I ended selling the Tom Deaver to upgrade, many years later, I still own and play the original $80 flute quite often :-)
