RISE "Greatest Hits" Collection
Posted: Sep 22 2015
"Four months ago, I was notified that a storage unit under my last name was about to have it's contents sent to auction. Once I responded to the notice, I learned that the unit had belonged to my late Father and was being paid for by a relative who had just recently passed away.
By the time I visited the storage unit it had already been torn apart and was a complete mess. I was pissed. A few weeks later, I found out that one of the items inside the storage unit, and now lost to whoever had looted it, was my Dad's most prized possession: his vinyl collection. My old man raised me on those vinyls, those records were our connection to one another. And to me, those artists, albums and songs still are.
In my mind, the only thing that matters is celebrating the music... some of the best music of all time. The late 80's through the early 90's was a golden era for Rock & Roll, and the origin of the Alternative sound.
Each piece from this re-interpreted collection features some of my favorite (adapted) lyrics from songs that any music fan will appreciate. And, while I never did recover my Pop's vinyls, being able to bring these highly detailed pieces to life is the closest thing to getting them back."
