Shouldn't be any surprise that this album should be similar to his Inside album (aka Inside the Taj Mahal) from some eight years before, after all, the album was basically spiritual/meditational music played on flute in a sacred landmark, in this case, the King's Chamber inside the Great Pyramid of Giza. Inside the Great Pyramid was recorded in 1976 (during the height of pyramid mania), released the following year (1977) on the Mushroom label, then in 1983 on the German Kuckuck label (the same label that gave us such prog rock, electronic, Krautrock, and New Age acts like Out of Focus, Deuter, Michael Hoenig, etc.), with a different cover. The original Mushroom LP came with an embossed cover and a booklet that told you how the album was recorded and how he got inside the pyramid to do his recordings. My only real complaint I had of Inside the Taj Mahal was the album was too short, so for Inside the Great Pyramid, Paul Horn made it a double album. Each of the old LP's four sides were divided in to "Initiation", "Meditation", "Enlightment" and "Fulfillment", each themselves divided in to Psalms. And just like the album he did in the Taj Mahal back in '68, the music is all improvised flute music, with the exception of the occasional voice. The voice, this time around was provided by none other than Paul Horn himself, rather than a guard like at the Taj Mahal. There is no getting around the fact that if you liked his Inside the Taj Mahal album, you're certain to like this one as well, as it's more great spiritual/meditational music and obviously in the same vein.
