Didn’t Want To Know

https://davidelias.bandcamp.com/track/didnt-want-to-know

New moon, new song “Didn’t Want To Know”. Recorded in my first kitchen studio. You can hear it here.

We all learn as we go. Sometimes we just don’t want to know even though we do.

“Lost in the Green” grows up to CD quality streaming with MQA

Even though this was my first recorded album done in ’95 and released in ’96 I never released it to iTunes and the rest for digital downloads. I don’t know why…maybe their compressed MP3 sound was too off the original.
It was a coffeehouse acoustic album, I made it in a spare bedroom and did all the recording and mixing. it was mastered by Gus “Guinness” Skinas. I included 2 cover songs by Townes Van Zandt who was still living then, out of respect for his respect for songwriting.
 
Now these years later, I made this roots acoustic collection featuring Calvin McElroy (guitars, mandolin), John Caulfield (fiddle) and Roger Powell (guitars) on some tracks available for streaming on TIDAL and 7Digital as an MQA encoded CD Master.
 
 
It sounds better to me than on disc with the MQA corrections in the time coherence delivering these tracks as the stark,bare bones original sound it got created as.
 
If you are not a TIDAL or 7Digital (Onkyo) subscriber, the MQA Master CD download is online here:
 
 
(Note: streaming from bandcamp sounds good but is not cd quality or MQA)

“Angelo” hits the streets as MQA CD Master download and streaming on TIDAL

“Angelo” Solo Acoustic Instrumental (MQA CD Master) hit the streets today at CDBaby, Bandcamp and TIDAL. You can listen and download from these sites:

http://cdbaby.com/cd/davidelias21
http://davidelias.bandcamp.com

Rare acoustic instrumental spontaneous compositions from a prolific composer – intimate close mic high resolution recordings, mastered for CD release with MQA encoding.

TIDAL streaming playback has been confirmed with MQA encoding (blue light on Meridian Explorer2).

The songs for Angelo were all recorded on the same day. They were inspired in the memory and honor of departed Angelo as spontaneous compositions. All acoustic guitar instrumentals in open tuning representing a variety of stylistic influences from Celtic to Folk to Bluegrass.

Dedicated to Angelo and to the memory of independent artists worldwide. The music is kind of folky, bluegrassy, celtic-new agey…. Hard to put in a box.

This is the second release in a series of “Solo Acoustic” recordings. The first from December 2016 was “Two Track Mind”, 13 solo singer-songwriter tracks available as an MQA encoded CD from CDBaby at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/davidelias19
