Highly recommend the early Higher Octave 2on1 cds. All of Aura's early material is great some more somber with zither much like a hybrid of Iasos and Laraaji. Dreamer and Half Moon Bay are more and I use this lightly progressive with prominent drums (and drum machine yes it was the 80s!) and world percussion. If you like that 80s synthy sound pick up Half Moon Bay it is a chock full of analog dreamy instrumental goodness for the ear! Heartbeat is the only release that is radically different because of here are way to many influences like jazz, world and new age and it does feel like he is trying to find a niche in his composition style by no means a bad album just different. Btw in the late 80s I actually had the stroke of luck of working with David Thomas (not Wendys!) the keyboard player and Andy Leonard the wind player on the early Aura albums, that being the height of the new age music era it was a real nice perk(wonder what ever happened to David Thomas).
