Coffeehouse DSD Playlist # 1 is a wonderful sampler of David Elias’s DSD work compiling curated tracks from his various full albums and EP’s. Get introduced to the authentic and natural sounds of acoustic music performed in a studio and captured with its analog feel in a digital format that is permanent and 100% consistent in sound quality forever. As Gus Skinas from the Sony SACD Project and the Super Audio Center said long ago “It sounds like analog tape only better.”
Tracks included on this album originally appeared on the albums “The Window”, “Crossing”, “Acoustic Trio DSD Sessions” and “Slipper DSD Sessions”.
David Elias says “Many fine things in life started and evolved from a coffeehouse. Some of the music from coffeehouses of the 60’s remains in the air and through the ether today. I was influenced both then and now by many of those stark to warm images being generated at that time.
I soon enough found myself playing coffeehouse on acoustic at university in the mid-70’s in the Midwest. Then before I knew it the world had already changed several times and it was the mid-90’s. I was thinking about again playing coffeehouse, this time in the SF Bay Area with many original songs I had written on Acoustic Guitar.
Coffeehouse and Acoustic Music had already come and gone in popular music. But I still felt the influence and had in fact continued to live in its comfy waves through those rock-pop-disco-metal-grunge decades.
So, coming back to the coffeehouse in the 90’s was easy for me. I started approaching local coffeehouses with the idea of live music, usually on a weekend morning. I was soon playing at different places on the Hwy 1 coast and other spots in and around San Francisco.”
