I have been looking for this music for over ten years. My sister had this album back in the 70's. Of course when I asked her about it, she had sold all her vinyls in a garage sale many years before. I was ecstatic when I found it on the internet. Can't wait to let my husband hear it.

I am so glad to find "The Sea"! I came across the three albums in the late sixties. I liked "The Sky" best, borrowed that album and taped it on my Sony 7" reel-to-reel tape recorder. I keep that tape as a master (but it does have gliches---30+ years old) and dub it to cassette again whenever the current cassette wears out. The music lifts me and floats me away as it used to on grass. (Straight since '88.) I keep haunting thrift shop vinyl collections hoping to come across any of the three albums. Wish I had bought them when they were available.

Thank God for internet.I remember studying this particular poetry back in 1971 in High School. Left the states and thought I would never find it again. And here it is. I loved the SEA then and love the SEA now. Seeing the beautiful seashors of my island, PR only reminded me more of what I had left behind. It's the most beautiful poetry I've ever heard. And it has stayed in my mind for all those years. I'm glad I finally found you.

I am so delighted to have re-found The Sea. I loved this album in the 70's. I've haunted music stores recently, trying to find a remake of this album on either a CD or tape. The music is so tranquil, so relaxing, so poignant and the poetry is beautiful. Close your eyes and you hear the sea around you.

There were three albums out:The Sea,The Sky and The Earth.The Sea is one of the most wonderful albums I have ever heard.So excited to find it in CD.Wish I could fine the other two either in record, tape or CD but do not know how to go about to find the Sky or The Earth---HELP!All three were by Anita Kerr, Rod McKuen and San Sabastion Strings.

I first heard this album, on vinyl, as a teenager. It still has the ability to profoundly affect my moods, inducing a state that is part catatonic and part nostalgic. I live in New Zealand and am seldom far from the sea. This is the only album I would need to transport me to the sea anytime, anywhere. The poetry of Rod McKuen is mesmeric, and the music is like onomatopoeia to the moods of the sea. This is an album for lovers, to be enjoyed when the mood is languid, and when you want to feel as old and wise and ageless as the sea.

I was given as a gift(from my mom) the sheet music book of The Sea. I learned every song on this album. I can only remember how to play one now. If anyone knows where I can get the musicbook (sheet music for the piano) of this wonder, please let me know.

Like all the people who have written here I listened to this music in the 70's. Whatever happened to the rest of the vinyl series is beyond me. I am glad to have found The Sea. Does anyone know where I can find the rest of the series?

"The Sea" is a pleasant departure from the clapp trapp that the Media Wizzards foist off on the public today. If you are going to record poetic or prose texts, this certainly beats "Rapp". As each has mentioned before me, please reintroduce "The Earth" and "The Sky".

I was introduced to ''The Sea'' by my poetry teacher in the early ''70's. Since then the work of Rod McKuen as fascinated me. Every time I listen to the works of Rod McKuen I become melancholy. ''The Sea'' reminds me of my childhood and adolescent years. And now, as an adult, I have a better understanding of life as I live from day to day.
