Out Of Print! Last Chance! Limited Supplies!
The return of a hi-fi romantic music classic.
One of the choice audio aphrodisiacs of the '60s and '70s, the Mystic Moods
Orchestra mixed orchestral pop, environmental sounds and pioneering recording
techniques into a unique musical phenomenon. Audiophile Brad Miller was devoted
to capturing sound as accurately as possible and in the '50s he began recording
some of the last steam locomotives running. In order to sell his railroad
recordings, Miller formed the Mobile Fidelity label. The concept of the Mystic
Moods Orchestra didn't occur to him until the mid-'60s, when a late-night San
Francisco DJ played one of Miller's albums and an easy listening album
simultaneously on the air. When he received surprisingly positive feedback to
his joke, he told Miller, who was suitably inspired to collaborate with
arranger/composer Don Ralke on the first Mystic Moods Orchestra album, 1965's
One Stormy Night. Released through Philips, it became
the label's most popular release that year and throughout the rest of the '60s
and '70s, Miller and producer Leo Kulka repeated that success with Mystic Moods
Orchestra releases like Nighttide, More Than Music, and Another Stormy Night.
The album covers and titles made it clear that the music was intended for
Miller continued to pursue higher levels of sonic perfection, releasing more
environmental and railroad recordings, as well as Mystic Moods reissues on his
own Soundbird label. More importantly, in the late '70s, Miller founded the
Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs. There, he implemented half-speed mastering
techniques and the highest quality vinyl and cutting machines to produce albums
with pristine sound quality. Many labels licensed Mobile Fidelity's process for
Another Stormy Night features a potpourri of the most popular music from the
