Much like Hannah Levin, I'm not ashamed to admit that I've never listened to a certain artist. But how I've managed to live all these years and not hear Alice Coltrane's Journey In Satchidananda is beyond me. I mean, I always knew of this record, but for some reason, never listened to it. For all my love of meditation, mysticism, conciousness expansion, and all around trippiness, this is one essential piece that has been missing from my record collection. But I got it now, and spent all night last night staring at the walls of my apartment listening to this masterpiece. If you haven't heard it, I urge you to do the same.
