The return of a hi-fi romantic music classic.
One of the choice audio aphrodisiacs of the '60s and '70s, the Mystic Moods Orchestra mixed orchestral pop, environmental sounds and pioneering recording techniques into a unique musical phenomenon. Audiophile Brad Miller was devoted to capturing sound as accurately as possible and in the '50s he began recording some of the last steam locomotives running. In order to sell his railroad recordings, Miller formed the Mobile Fidelity label. The concept of the Mystic Moods Orchestra didn't occur to him until the mid-'60s, when a late-night San Francisco DJ played one of Miller's albums and an easy listening album simultaneously on the air. When he received surprisingly positive feedback to his joke, he told Miller, who was suitably inspired to collaborate with arranger/composer Don Ralke on the first Mystic Moods Orchestra album, 1965's One Stormy Night. Released through Philips, it became
the label's most popular release that year and throughout the rest of the '60s and '70s, Miller and producer Leo Kulka repeated that success with Mystic Moods Orchestra releases like Nighttide, More Than Music, and Another Stormy Night. The album covers and titles made it clear that the music was intended for romance.
Miller continued to pursue higher levels of sonic perfection, releasing more environmental and railroad recordings, as well as Mystic Moods reissues on his own Soundbird label. More importantly, in the late '70s, Miller founded the Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs. There, he implemented half-speed mastering techniques and the highest quality vinyl and cutting machines to produce albums with pristine sound quality. Many labels licensed Mobile Fidelity's process for reissues.
Another Stormy Night features a potpourri of the most popular music from the earliest albums, sequenced in a very special way to create yet another fabulous mystic mood encounter. It is truly a most pleasurable listening experience and now available for the first time in HQ 180-gram LP.
