Comment: CD in very good condition and plays perfectly. Complete with all inserts/artwork also in very good condition--no sawcuts or other markings. Free upgrade to 1st class shipping. Mailed in a sturdy bubble mailer. Buy with confidence from a one-person operation, where items are always in stock and accurate grading and descriptions are the norm, not the exception--as my feedback substantiates.

I don't know if my title is quite accurate, but Oregon's music is simply gorgeous. You'd be stretched to find anything anywhere that compares with its beauty. Their early albums as a group are all a real treat, as are many of their solo albums (check out Towner and Walcott especially on ECM).
Distant Hills was originally recorded in 1973. The instruments played by these master musicians give a clue to its musical content: Paul McCandless - oboe; Glen Moore - violin, flute, electric & acoustic bass, bowed bass; Ralph Towner: piano, trumpet, acoustic six and twelve string guitar; Collin Walcott - clarinet, piano, marimba, percussion, guitar, tamboura, sitar and tabla. Comparisons might be made with McLaughlin's My Goal's Beyond - similar territory and instrumentation anyway.

Two tracks on this album, Aurora and Canyon Song, are among my all-time favorites by anyone. Beautifully paced and building up to emotional waves that wash over you, this is true 'soul' music, a precurser to the best emotional highs the Pat Metheny Group can conjure up. The texures are exquisite, the musicianship suberb and the soloing always moves the piece forward.

This is my favourite album of this truly unique ensemble where each member creates his own musical styles and all of them are ideally intertwined in beautiful aural textures. Most of compositions on "DISTANT HILLS" belong to Ralph Towner and there are two free improvisations. All members of OREGON are multiinstrumentalists and the music they play is very rich, meditative, and eclectic.
