Opens Spaces CD

Open Spaces was originally recorded between 1983 and 1988″. The album Open Spaces is not available anymore but many of the songs are available on the CD “Jelly Music”

The music on “Open Spaces” was a landmark recording for its time. John Huling’s first release “Open Spaces”, drew considerable praises both locally and internationally. John put together the sounds of nature with music in such a way that the nature sounds, including ocean, whales and birds became more a part of the musical composition than just acting as “add on special effects”.

Open Spaces became one of the best sellers in the genre of the day. The Nature Company and The Monterey Bay Aquarium as well as Bookstores and Gift Shops all around the world” were selling Open Spaces by the bucket load.

Recorded 1986-1989. Released 1989.
