Box of Fun

Back in 2006 a dealer suggested that I put together a compilation with songs featuring really well recorded bass. Based on that premise, I set about assembling some terrific music that just so happened to also have deep, deep bass. As usual I chose the music first & foremost based on its musical qualities; the album must stand on its own feet as something worth listening to. So while there are quite a lot of non-audiophile recordings on this album, it’s full of great music & some sonic surprises added for good measure.

Highlights:

Bruno Coulais’ Norbu from the Himalaya OST; very dramatic build up to a wonderful bass explosion.
Boyz II Men Yesterday – absolutely remarkable cover of the Beatles classic.
Kathryn Williams’ Little Black Numbers is superbly well recorded. Beautiful vocal, an artist that sadly seems neglected by music lovers.
Mino Cinelu’s Soon I Will Be Home is a first class demo tune; wonderfully defined, articulate bass, wrapped in a tune you will love over & over.

This is a wonderful compilation that I am delighted to be able to share with my friends. When I originally tried to assemble this on Tidal, many of the songs were unavailable so I put it aside. It’s now complete. Originally compiled in 2009, this album cost me a small fortune in time & $$, as I polled on all the forums and asked people’s advice as to what music they use to make out. I ended up buying about forty odd CDs and pulled the best 80 minutes that played nicely together. I hope you & your significant other enjoy this album. Music is for sharing.
