Mark Dwane: Archives

This a superb collection of previously unreleased works and alternate mixes by Dwane. It’s a collector's item, limited-edition CDR, not available in stores. Only 500 have been burned; each being numbered and personally signed by Mark.

Dwane has updated, extended, re-worked, and refined the best tracks collected out of his earlier midi-guitar releases. My “mind-ears” always perk up and echo, “Patrick O’Hearn . . .”, when I hear sections of Dwane’s material but he retains enough unique stylings and compositions to stand apart on his own safely.

I enjoyed this CD-R a great deal and it is worth grabbing as a good representative taste of the Dwane soundworld. He does amazing things with a guitar! In fact you will rarely think a guitar is being used but that Tangerine Dream or Vangelis were all in the mix!

I was especially happy when chatting with Dwane, before receiving this release, suggesting he extend certain songs from The Monuments of Mars, when he informed me Archives indeed had already included an extended version of TMoM ’s “Eternity”. I wished he’d extended that track to about 10 or 15 minutes but I’ll take even five minutes of eternity of the “Dwane-man”. Recommended head-trip!
