I love having a CD collection, a record collection. I love reading the album inserts. I love the whole "ritual" of CD's - I find it really motivating to put on an album whilst doing the housework. I love choosing a CD from my collection before lighting a candle and just laying down and listening. For me, it's the entire experience. And I don't want my whole life to be based around my damn iPhone!
Same with me. A lot of the music I own is either instrumental music or music with nature sounds. I own a whole collection of 300+ nature music CDs (same brand) that I bought. I always got a joy out of them whenever I found one.
Along with its sibling sites:
I got a whole selection a few weeks ago off iTunes, but I had to look up the album artists' names on iTunes to find the albums that I wanted. For the nature ones, search "Dan Gibson's Solitudes", but not all of the Solitudes albums are on iTunes yet. I do have a rare and discontinued one I ordered on Amazon (Nature's Spa: Classical Bliss) that's on neither iTunes or their own websites, along with a sampler album that has selections of just the first 12 nature sound only albums.
You can also find these CDs at the Hallmark stores, Bed Bath & Beyond, museums, aquariums, Target (has LifeScapes), Kohl's, even Busch Gardens! I was at Busch Gardens this past October and they had those CDs EVERYWHERE in the park. Why, in the Ireland section they were playing my favorite Celtic Solitudes CD, Gentle World: Celtic Reverie.
My favorite song on that CD is Lissadell And I have 372 of these kinds of albums on my phone consisting of Solitudes, Avalon Music, Reflections, and LifeScapes
