FERVENT is another Philippine Bootleg New Wave Compilation released here in MANILA wayback 1998. You might ask what "Fervent" means and here it is according to Merriam-Webster Dictionary: very hot, glowing, exhibiting or marked by great intensity of feeling, zealous (Fervent Prayers). What I will feature here is the DIGIPACK version of the CD courtesy of my high school best friend JACK J. which was released back in 1999(A year after the original release) by NWFaction. This was the time when both CHORUS GIRL and LOST AND FOUND bootleg CD became a big hit here in Manila. I find this compilation very relaxing, smooth and great. The selections are quite good with the likes of GAZEBO(I LIKE CHOPIN, DEPECHE MODE(SOMEBODY), AZTEC CAMERA(HOW MEN ARE) and many more. This CD reminds me of the POWER105 DZBM FM's Noontime Lite New Wave Radio Show entitled "LIGHT AND EASY FAVORITES" wayback 1988-1990 wherein New Wave music is on the lighter side of the genre. Of course, who would forget POWER105 DJ CHEL D's favorite "BROKEN LAND" song which is also included in the CD. That for sure will travel you back into those DZBM days.
This excellent CD includes 17 LITE and EASY Common New Wave songs that's right for a hard days work. Definitely PINOY WAVERS would remember this compilation although it was never made into a Series like the other Philippine New Wave Bootleg CDs I featured here before in my blog. I have to say that this is FERVENT indeed!! Well, I've decided to share to you the entire CD for download here in my blog so I asked JACK J. to upload the CD for me. YUP!! The entire CD for you regular visitors of my humble blog to download. Hopefully you guys would like it the way I did. Feel free to leave a comment about the compilation when you download it. The songs are not Obscure or Hard To Find but it's still worth it as a compilation which was released here in Manila when CD Burning was not yet available during those times.
