Celistic comes from the word "Celestial". It is a name of the star system with plenty of planetary systems suitable for human life. Celistic is a fantastic world full of incredible stories and adventures against far future. Ordinary people here become heroes able to decide destinies of millions.
It is here, on this 1977 blockbuster, that Steve Miller shored up his "Space Cowboy" moniker and cosmic persona: from the winged horse on the album cover to a judicious smattering of synthesizers in the music, Book of Dreams bridged the gap between blues-rock and the indulgences of prog rock.
Essential: A masterpiece of jazz fusion music.
On Oregon's debut album what you get is jazz fusion with a strong emphasis on the jazz side of the equation. In fact, I'd count Oregon as being one of the few fusion outfits who don't actually draw that much on rock - instead, the main non-jazz influences are folk music and raga, the latter seeping in through Collin Walcott's tabla and sitar.
Music of Another Present Era remains Oregon's most enduring masterwork. Achieving a perfect balance of musical traditions from the East and West, ancient to future, they set the stage not only for a new transculturalism in jazz, but also created a lasting template for the fusion of musics from world traditions that would flower over a decade later. […] This is fusion music, to be sure, but it's the kind of fusion musicians have been trying unsuccessfully to emulate for decades. Music of Another Present Era is one of the most poetic and groundbreaking records to be released in the 1970s. ~Thom Jurek, All Music
