Can't get enough of the CHINA CRISIS Concert here in MANILA KABAYANS? Well, the duo's concert back in 2002 was much better than their recent Manila stint last month January 2010 but nevertheless they made a lot of people happy listening to their kind of music. Here's the very first official CHINA CRISIS Live album entitled "ACOUSTICALLY YOURS". YUP!! The first one that's according to the duo themselves GARY DALY and EDDIE LUNDON which was written on the inner sleeves of my CD. This is a must have CD for PINOY NEW WAVERS indeed because It's a different version that we usually hear so when this was available on the local record stores back in 1995 I didn't had second thoughts of buying it at once. Well sadly, record stores here in MANILA aren't that interesting anymore. The death of TOWER RECORDS and MUSIC ONE added to that scenario. This CD was produced by Mark Phythian and recorded digitally at The Neptune Theatre in Liverpool by the Wigwam Mobile. All songs in this set was mixed at The Winding Studio at North Wales. One great acoustic compilation indeed that you'll not get tired of listening especially in this Era Of Music Files It's still nice to own the original CD. YUP!! Nothing compares to the Original CD that has the Album Cover and the sleeves because the Physical thing made CDs for me still attractive.
ACOUSTICALLY YOURS is a Live Set Acoustic Compilation CD by CHINA CRISIS which was released back in 1995 which composed of 14 of their greatest hits sang in an acoustic session. The beautiful art works included in the CD sleeves were done by GARY DALY. I uploaded my entire CD for those who are just interested to have the copy.

The acoustic versions here of WISHFUL THINKING, AFRICAN AND WHITE, and BLACK MAN RAY were all WAVE 180 classics. YUP!! It's on the regular playlist of the 90's Philippine Legendary New Wave Radio show of 89 DMZ entitled "WAVE 180" which I had made a special and exclusive blogpost here on "The Doctor Is In'" wayback April 2009 so just check it out on my Blog's Labels archives if you have missed it. I uploaded both Black Man Ray and African and White for your listening pleasure to relive the good old days.
