A Troubled Resting Place (1996) is a compilation album by the American ambient musician Robert Rich. The first five tracks were originally released on multi-artist compilations. The sixth and final track is Rich’s 1994 mini-CD release Night Sky Replies.


In spite of the wide variety of sources of the material in this compilation, there is a constant style throughout the album. It consists of dark, turbulent organic atmospheres.
