Kind of mad it doesn't include the non mathematical acid rock listed on the back!! The liner notes are trying so hard to be a white paper.

The tracks? modernist baroque music! It's good. I don't know if any of the tracks are absolute bangers but they're the kind of songs you go ' damn that's a pretty good baroque from a modernist collective!'

Pretty light and fluffy, but so stuck in the 1970s that it's almost an interesting listen. If this was just a record of easy going instrumentals I wouldn't have given it a second look. But the fact it's purposefully made to play to your plants to encourage growth, the money is all in that fact alone! And thank goodness for this record, or I might have not heeded the advice in the liner notes and played "non mathematical" or "acid rock" music to my plants, which would have discouraged growth. So hide your Blue Cheer albums! Hilarious!

PBS Presents: A Variety Of TV Intro/Outro/Credits Scene Music From 1974. This was made possible in part by listeners like you.

If only they threw in the acid rock which they describe in terms as being the type of sounds a plant would shy away from (plants don't enjoy a big beat? ) and end up growing more prosperous with 'mathematical' music such as baroque (as admitted on the back cover) this might not be a throwaway record - not to mention the mastering is terrible and a thin pressing.

I absolutely love this record. It is 70's kitsch flawlessly stitched together with great classical music. Many of the tracks sound like the rolling credits of an old PBS show from the 1970s. They would have been at home alongside the intro for The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross. Other pieces are dream like and unbelievably beautiful. I would recommend this album to any fan of retro style and elegance of the quirky variety.
