A truly unique album. Unbelievable good. Easy can become one of the favorite records of my collection. I wouldn't spend $900 for it (or any other record) but with bloody tears, I spent $100 but after listening I have no regrets and it is worth each penny.

I had found this sealed in 2009 for .50$ Just like the bargain bin price, this record barely exists. Sold it for 110$ in 2012. And no don't spend 900 on it.

From online review: “Wilderness America/A Celebration of the Land, is a musical exploration of our place within the cycle of living things. All compositions were specially commissioned for this album and blended with natural sounds recorded in the wild.” That’s what the liner notes say, but that’s only half the story. This private record includes various artists, but has recently become known for the track “Metropolis,” which is a heavy soul/funk song that features Walter Hawkins, Harvey Mason, Mike Melvoin, and Lee Ritnour. Wilderness America opens with a gorgeous piece by New Age/electronic musician Iasos. Other pieces include “Mountain,” a gentle folk piece sung by David Riordan (who wrote many of the tracks on this LP), and “Flight of the Egret,” a jazzy folk instrumental track. Privately released in the U.S., probably in the 1970s.
