Dream Weapons present: VERSES WITHOUT WORDS C60

Eight years ago I posted a Verses Without Words 2xC60 (the links have been dead for years) that had radically different covers and contained 40 songs in total. I suppose this compressed version is about 35% identical to the original. Its so differnt that I couldn't really repost what I originally wrote, so here's a newly written text as well:
-Verses Without Words contains 22 tunes with nothing but my favorite kind of musical lyricism: wordless vocal. Perhaps unsurprisingly this means almost a 1/3rd of its content is lifted from various italian b-movie soundtracks. Plus there's some library music-delights. But there’s also a few jazzy scats, a trio of esoteric folk songs, a little exotica and a memorable visit to Bollywood. A couple of downright scary numbers (like in the video underneath), but largely packed with lovely melodies and voices of otherworldly beauty. Still it does resemble the killer score to some forgotten giallo or fantastique-film. In other words, enough words -Moahaha

    1. My pleasure, jeansolpartre - glad you're enjoying it!

  2. This looks good, and there's little chance of me singing previously misheard lyrics. Cheers Moahaha!

    1. Thanks! Yes, I think I nailed the genre I was going for. Upon relistening I thinks this floats along nicely for the first half - and then things gets a little messier on the b-side. Not bad, just messy. Same can be said about most giallo movies, really. Hope you like it!
