For Immediate Release: “I Found That Essence Rare” – The Sounds Of Beauty (V.A)

“It’s a rare thing to find a song that really makes you happy, inspires you and makes you want to shout out, at the top of your voice about the wonderful discovery so that everyone else can enjoy it too. Like the song by Gang of Four that provides the title of this sampler, we hope that we have gathered that rare essence in these 20 songs that will bring you that same excitement” – We feel this is the best compilation around so join us for the ride and please find some further details about the songs below & why not visit their Bandcamp page and support the bands and treat yourself to some more wonderful tunes. A huge thanks to all the bands and musicians that gave us permission to use these songs. – Wally
