"It had long been a dream of mine to bring together great drummers from around the world to make a recording based entirely on percussion," says Hart. " In 1991, that dream became reality." For the companion recording to his second book, Mickey Hart drew upon the stellar musical friendships he had made over several decades to make real his dream of a percussion masterwork, blending the talents and native instruments of percussion giants from five traditions into a celebratory classic.
His home in Petaluma, California was converted -- room by room -- into a recording facility wired for video as well as for sound, and recording sessions spanned several weeks in this comfortable, ultra-creative communal setting. The resulting album won the Grammy for Best World Music Album in the first year of that category's existence, and set the standard for world music as a genre. Winning numerous other critics' and audience polls, it continues to establish itself as a true perennial of world music in general and percussion genius in particular.
PLANET DRUM is also available on Gold CD in the AU20 format. The AU20 trademark distinguishes enhanced audiophile editions of 20-bit digital masters replicated on 24K gold CDs. To insure the most accurate reproduction of the music, all analogue to 20-bit digital conversion is from the original mastertapes. Releases in the AU20 series include all artwork from the original albums and are individually numbered.

I know it is hard to fathom, but what we have here is a musical drum record. Very innovative too, with performers from around the world. Very well done.Published 3 months ago by Bill Stevenson
This is quite simply one of the best albums I have ever owned. My father gave me a cassette copy for my 16th birthday and I just about wore it out. Read morePublished 5 months ago by AJH
