the projectIn the original liner notes accompanying the 1976 album release, Inside the Great Pyramid, Paul Horn wrote the following: "The music from Mycerinus and some from Kephren is not included in this two-record set, but will be released on another LP some time in the near future." Well, the future is now. This hauntingly beautiful accoustic recording features Paul Horn on alto flute, 'C' flute and piccolo. The complete recordings, including previously unissued tracks are available in the duobox collection. The duobox is an innovative packaging format for double compact disks that places two CDs into a standard, single disk-sized jewel box by means of a modified inner compartment.
Disk one contains what were previously sides one, two and three of the double album, while disk two contains side four as well as the unissued recordings from Mycerinus and Kephren. The actual analog reel-to-reel Nagra recordings were transferred to the digital domain with the greatest care taken to preserve the character and integrity of these historic recordings. The ambience, mystery and power inherent in the sound of the remarkable chambers within the Great Pyramid are captured on this recording enabling the listener to feel as if he were Inside the Great Pyramid.
