Mickey Hart - Global Drum Project

I'm not a Greatful Dead fan. Just never got it although I did like the atmosphere. Now I am a huge Mickey Hart fan. When he records an album the percussion is perfectly recorded. If his name is first on an album just buy it!
I ran across this Global Drum Project on the youtube and it looks and sounds great.

    1. You got yours before mine. Have you played it? How does it sound? I have 3 other of his CDs and they sound spectacular.

  3. I'm listening to it right now. I really like it as much, if not more, than the video.

    Here are the DR Database values for the newly remastered tracks that I just completed, showing the significant increases in DR values:

  4. If you've ever seen the movie "Solaris" with George Clooney, it reminds me a great deal of that soundtrack, which I liked a lot.

    1. This is the best I've found in a while. His other stuff is a little different but always quality. I also like planet drum and at the edge. You can sample them here https://www.mickeyhart.net/discography

      I find lots of new stuff at Sound Ways http://www.soundwayrecords.com/catalogue
      They also let you sample tracks.
