New track from the History with Music series.


The Good Earth.


The heroic story of Apollo 8, the first manned mission to The Dark Side of The Moon.  


Dedicated to the memory of Space Race pioneering expert Sir Bernard Lovell, Director of the Jodrell Bank Radio Telescope, Cheshire UK. Sir Bernard passed away aged 98 today, the day I uploaded this song 07-08-2012.  


The track begins with the story back in 1968 - Sir Bernard is being interviewed by CBS’s Walter Cronkite on the Apollo 8 Mission, and it’s affect on the outcome for the Space Race.

"The Good Earth is pure magic. Robin lets his Rhesus Monkey teach us the wonder of our historical space program. Man at his best. Music that invades the senses."  Howard Lawrence.

"I've tried to imagine the world of Lovell, Borman and Anders as the first humans to witness the totality of the Good Earth and the Moon. I cannot. Sometimes awe and wonder is enough. As usual, Rhesus Monkey puts the words of the witnesses in the spotlight and let's them shine."  Embers of Autumn.

"Stunning video of shattered times (The Old Lion). Your musical pieces are sonic masterpieces!"  Salariatus
