All People -Blane Lyon & his Band "The Real"
This is a must have for any collection, it's sublime. I've listened to this CD so many times I've nearly worn it out already. Blane is the master of funk. Seriously good, if you like Prince you'll love the track "Lovelight". "All People" is really upbeat' funky and super sexy, you'll want to rip all your clothes off! "Strange" is mega smooth great for smooozing, listen to the message. When you listen to this music you just have to go check out the lyrics and poetry they are beautiful and heartfelt. The artwork is really cool too. Blane & his band rocks, big time!!!! Every single track is excellent and great value for money. I highly recommend it.

Gold - Singing Bear & The Mystics - available on CD, MP3 downloads & Itunes
This is a great debut album from a very talented singer/songwriter. Mindful lyrics and heartfelt message make this a must have album to add to any collection. Singing Bear and his band carry the discerning listener beyond the material realm into silence. Soft dulcet tones, undulating rhythms, soft beats and harmonious hues make this artist a leading light in the conscious music revolution. This album is packed with high quality beautiful tracks each with their own uplifiting, positive, vital vibes waiting to be discovered, how delightful. "Again" is a track I have played again and again it warms the heart and calls to the spirit. Inspirational intelligent lyrics coupled with a great feel good factor. I highly recommend it.

Singing Bear & Auminbus
I highly recommend this album. As you listen deeply to the lyrics in "All My Relations" and the drums they carry you beyond yourself to connect with the whole cosmos. It reminds me of a drumming circle I attended where I experienced this phenomen. Beautifully crafted lyrics and a whole range of instruments including Sitar are utilised to inspire and uplift the listener bringing a richness and depth to these tracks. "This Moment" is a sublime track and a reminder to stay present in the moment. The moment is so easily lost to worry & anxiety this music artfully anchors the listener to the moment. "All The Colors" beautiful lyric " it takes all the colors to make a rainbow" (indeed it does) is about removing boundaries with the realization there is no separation between us. "Trance Live" & "Obijaya" incorporates the Sitar and are outstanding live tracks. You can feel the love & joy from which they were created. A lovely vibe, great chillin music.

Adrian Xavier & His Band Live
5 Stars is in no away enough for this superb CD. I'm so glad I bought it even though some of the songs are also on this artist's other CDs the live vibe and extra long tracks are stunning. I rarely bother with live albums because so often the sound is poor & I don't want to hear too much audience participation drowning out the music or musicians not paying enough attention to their playing because they are too busy interacting with the audience. Adrian Xavier & his band have struck a wonderful balance, quality playing coupled with the energetic live vibe.Make no mistake this is reggae at it's best, I absolutely love it. This CD is worth more than $5 and a must for all lovers of great music. All the tracks are amazing "Gypsy Life" leaves me speechless!

"Breathe" (Ka Hanu Ala) translates as The Enlivening Breath available - Human & The Revolution
This album completely
lives up to it's name. Every track is amazing and beautiful. The artwork
on the CD sleeve is beautiful too and this album comes complete with a
lovely lyrics book which also encompasses beautiful artwork. I keep
saying beautiful because words are hardly adequate to describe it. Every
song carries a message (listen to the message.) Here is an amazing
singer/songwriter with additional lyrics by Elana Cydney, Amae Allen,
Shasta, Shariana Suliafu, Singing Bear, Dreaming Bear, Al Torre &
Daniel Cohen & more. Sublime & instrumentally rich a mixture of
guitar, djembe drums, bass, flute, cello, trumpet, congas, steel drums,
Hawaiin lap steel, birch rattle, violin, saxaphone, tambourine, dumbek
making this work a triumph. Treat yourself to this musical extravaganza
