If Thousands: Lullaby (Silber)

Label: Silber    
Released in: USA    

"The liner notes for If Thousands' Lullaby includes the decidedly non-Freedom Rock instruction, "Please listen to this recording at as low a volume as possible to induce & aid in slumber." It reminds me of the story I read somewhere where Brian Eno fell asleep during another musician's performance and told him afterwards that falling asleep wasn't an insult but the highest compliment he could pay. There's music for dancing, music for traveling, and yes, music for sleeping. My Bloody Valentine, Windy and Carl, Galaxie 500, Miles Davis' In a Silent Way, the extended jams in the middle of Jimi Hendrix's Live at Winterland . . . this is the music I take naps to, music that has the unique ability to carry me off into the far-off land of dreams. If Thousands' album is poised to join this select group. You don't call an album Lullaby unless you mean it, and they do."-David Heaton,
