NEW MUSIC PERFECT RHYTHM





A friend of mine brought this Philippine released compilation abum entitled "NEW MUSIC PERFECT RHYTHM" at school back in 1986 which made me very curious of the Bands and Artist included so I also got my copy. Personally, I consider this as a follow-up compilation of "IT'S CALLED NEW MUSIC" because of the concept and the art work in the album. This compilation was released early 1986 just before the HISTORICAL PHILIPPINE FEBRUARY 1986 EDSA PEOPLE POWER REVOLUTION which ousted former PRESIDENT FERDINAND MARCOS. A great compilation of bands like LET'S ACTIVE, SMASH PALACE, A DROP IN THE GRAY, which were all introduced by DZBM POWER 105 in 1986. Great tunes also from WIRE TRAIN, LORDS OF THE NEW CHURCH, R.E.M. and EIGHTH WONDER. My personal favorite would be "ANOTHER GIRL" by DIGNEY FIGNUS. WXB102 and NU107 also played most of the tunes in the album. "Happy Birthday" by ALTERED IMAGES made it three weeks in a row as #1 on the WXB102 TOP 10 Most Sequestered Songs in 1986. A great score from the past that PINOY NEW WAVERS would definitely remember.

I was able to gather all the songs in this compilation except for one - "Another Girl" of Digney Fignus. This song seems hard to find. If you could find an mp3 copy of this I would be happy.

THANKS A LOT.
