No, that price is not a typo. Yes, this is a CD box set of nature sounds, no music included. And, unlike many other "budget" CDs, where you definitely get what you pay for in terms of sound quality, the recordings on these discs are clear and beautiful. If you like nature sounds but don't have a lot of cash, you can pick this box up for the price you would normally pay for ONE disc!
The discs in the box are called "Tropical Rainforest," "Bayou," "Jungle Talk," "Wilderness River," and the sampler. Each features sounds from the particular place described; the sampler includes a short piece from each of the discs plus some others in the "Echoes of Nature" series. It's hard to pick a favorite, but "Bayou," with its bird songs, rumbling alligators, and memorable finale (a frog chorus set against a distant evening thunderstorm) is especially evocative. "Jungle Talk" is great too, but be aware that it is not for relaxing, especially when the howler monkeys start roaring!
Listen and enjoy!

Part concert, part documentary, Steely Dan - Two Against Nature offers a savvy cross-section of both old and new material performed by the latest incarnation of the formidable stage bands that founders Walter Becker and Donald Fagen have assembled for the periodic tours unleashed since their early '90s concert reunion.
