  1. This is a revelation! I had no idea that such music was ever made in the Philippines, a land I only know for being swamped in power-ballads, ’70s American rock and, generally, music undesirable to my ears. Thank you for an extremely interesting and enjoyable listen.
    I found the quality of the soul, funk and boogaloo numbers, frankly, surprising. As a fan of Jamaican music, I was intrigued and stupefied to hear songs I know well being covered by Filipinas/os – who’d have thought it! However, what I found most instructive was your final selections of originals sung in Tagalog, showing a depth beyond the, albeit impressive, ability to simply cover a song well.
    In my opinion, the Philippines often suffers from a rather poor, two-dimensional representation abroad. What you are doing with your impressive site is a direct challenge to that which can only be for the good. Thanks again.

  2. Thanks Chris, that was fun! For me, the I Shot The Sheriff cover and the vocals on Israelites get closest to the sound of reggae, a notoriously hard sound to emulate. That said, the star track, for me, is the Tagalog cover of Shame & Scandal – excellent! I look forward to further musical outings from you.

    1. Yes Israelites and I Shot The Sheriff two of my favourites as well. I have a couple other versions of Shame and Scandal (seems to of been a popular record to cover) but thought 4 versions in one mix might of been a bit much haha. Thanks for listening.
