Review by Darren Gawle
Not quite the harp-and-flute combination I remember from the theme
song to The Friendly Giant, Crescent Moon is the
brainchild of Firestar, denizen of new age cafés, wedding
performances and the occasional healing seminar [ed.
Healing seminar?]. The CD certainly made for some odd background
music while I was reading up on S.S. atrocities in Russia during
World War 2 [ed. -- HEALING SEMINAR?!?], so maybe it's better
suited to those discussions over tea about the merits of the I
Ching as opposed to the Tarot. Samples of wildlife such as
humpback whales and seagulls abound, but why "Harmonic Vibrations"
features the sound of someone cooking bacon in a deep-fryer is
(Fun Fact: Firestar's bio notes that her dad conducted the
Edmonton Symphony Orchestra until 1974, so chances are good that
he was involved with Procol Harum's Conquistador session.)
