5.0 out of 5 stars Much More Than Background Music June 24, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This beautifully packaged series was once available through the Nature Company stores, and part of the proceeds passed on to The Nature Conservancy to assist in it's conservation efforts. When I bought my first "Last Great Places on Earth" CD by Dennis Hysom "for the cause", so to speak, I was prepared for some insipid background noise, shapeless and colorless, with cute little animals noises interjected here and there. What I discovered is truly beautiful music, fully formed and orchestral in sound. This man writes movie themes, so it shouldn't have been surprising that I was hooked from the first track. Virtually every track is smooth and seamless. "Wolf Trail" may be a bit heavy-handed with howls, but once the moody, jazzy sax and poignant cello start up, the woven tapestry of canine voices and human instruments can move me to tears. I was so impressed by his treatment of "Glacier Bay" (Alaska) that I bought every other title I could find, going as far as contacting distributors to find tapes or CD's that I still wanted after the series was out of print. Another album I particularly recommend, if you can find it, is "Cloud Forest" (Costa Rica). If this is considered "background music", it sure has class! I am very happy to see Amazon.com carrying these titles and hope they will soon make the entire catalogue available.

5.0 out of 5 stars When Nature and Music become One! December 13, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Glacier Bay was my first taste of Mr. Hysom's excellent talent. His music and the interwoven sounds of some of the last great natural places on this planet are fully developed, tapestried works of art that together transcend either alone. This music is truly artistic talent at its best.
The Nature Company originally carried his works, but has long since stopped. It's a shame because any other "mood" or "nature" music will seem very plain and contrived to anybody after an evening at Glacier Bay.
For quite a while his music was difficult to find, though Dennis himself on several occasions (via email) directed me to various small outfits that still carried him. It is great to see Amazon now carries some of his works. Hopefully they will pick of the rest of his work.
These works are real treasures, truly musical masterpieces. If you're a classical fan, I enthusiastically place Dennis Hysom's works every bit as novel to our ages as Beethoven, Mozart, or Brahms was of past generations. If you love the New Age, this will be some of the best you've heard. And if you just love nature, nothing I've ever heard has been better.
I do not give praise lightly; I've played musical instruments in symphonies for years myself. Dennis Hysom had a truly inspirational talent in putting these pieces together. Buy Glacier Bay and listen to the world speak its voice. I guarantee you you'll love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it so much I bought it twice!! September 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I received this CD as a gift back when The Nature Company was not owned by Discovery Channel (don't get me started on that topic...) and loved it dearly! I listened to it while biking, running, relaxing - it is great for every mood, but as the others have stated, it is perfect for just taking it easy. It actually inspired me to visit Glacier Bay, Alaska which is an amazing place. This CD does it a great deal of justice, which is hard to imagine if you have been to Glacier Bay but have not heard this CD.

When I moved, this CD got lost. At that point, The Nature Company was no longer and I went without this CD for seven years, but thought about it (and actually looked for it in my house, my sisters' houses, etc.) repeatedly. Finally I broke down and bought it again and to my delight, it is still the wonderful music I heard over seven years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars My long prized cd's. December 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Glacier Bay was my first cd bought from the Nature Co. and I anxiously awaited Dennis Hysom to come out with more like it. I purchased Bayou, Cloud Forest, Caribbean & Badlands and was sorry to see the Nature Co. go. When I was sailing a cruise ship from Hawaii with a skeleton crew from Louisiana I happened to put in Bayou while on the bridge. Over the next few days more & more company rep's would show up to hear Bayou played at least once a night for over a 2 week period. It was a kick listening to them trying to guess the sounds of the animals in each track. I highly recommend these cd's to any & everyone!
