80's compilation album - Horizon
Has anyine ever heard of an album called "Horizon" or "Horizons". It was a compilation album of what could best be described as "atmospheric" instrumentals of that period (not the carpenters album) with songs like "Crocket's theme" (that's the only one I can remember, although I'd probably recognise most of the songs if I heard them!) Anyway, it was an album my dad owned for a number of years on cassette until he managed to lose it somewhere. Every now and then he mentions how much he misses it and it would mean the world to him if I could find a copy somewhere. I've tried scouring the net but can't even find a mention of it anywhere, let alone a copy. I don't even know who made it, all I have is the name.

If anyone has heard of it, or perhaps even has a copy, please, please, please let me know.

Yes my Dad owned the very same album. I have fond memories as a child listening to it in the back of the car, and likewise I have been trying to find copy of it somewhere for my Dad. If you do come across a copy let me know!
