One of my favorite albums I found purely by chance in a thrift store 20 years ago in a 25 cent cassette called, Djivan Gasparyan - I Will Not Be Sad In This World - Duduk Music from Armenia (1989)

Recently I found the vinyl promotional release on eBay after waiting for it to show up for the last ten years.

Brian Eno called it one of the most beautiful and soulful recordings he has ever heard, and I of course agree.

I hope you check it out and enjoy it even half as much as I do.
