It gives me great pleasure to introduce the artistic endeavor "Varela, Days Gone By," a handcrafted work of musical art originally released in 1981. Over the years, I have received countless inquiries about Varela projects, and decided to put this project together for digital download.
As a bonus to those familiar with the first generally released LP, "Varela, A New Plateau," I have included four cuts from the test LP, "Varela," limitedly released in 1977. Additionally, I have included a forgotten version of "Jamie" that was never released. By purchasing the entire "Varela, Days Gone By" file, the enite booklet is included in PDF format. For those who are enjoying the experience for the first time, welcome.
This compilation was made by using the best live performance of each cut that expressed the emotional theme of the song, regardless of flaws. From there, tracks were added to taste. The result is an unusual honesty that bridges the gap betwen artistic intent and emotional impact.
The digital download is converted to 320 kbps, the highest level permitted and is rated as an audiophile recording. "
