This album was never meant to see the light of day. After only a single gig together in Vancouver in 1990, young guitarists Brad Shepik and Ron Samworth were inspired to head into the studio, where they recorded an ill-fated set of almost entirely original numbers accompanied by bassist Phil Sparks and drummer Michael Sarin. Due to the lack of preparation, there were performance issues and the project was abandoned. Still, the one-off session yielded some memorable, compelling music, Shepik's pieces in particular, four of them never subsequently recorded. Digital editing has dealt with any of the issues and while two pieces have been shortened, otherwise the music presented here is exactly as it was played back then.

"I had completely forgotten about this session. Surprised to hear it again in the sense that much has changed yet remains the same. Not a huge struggle to recognize myself ...”
- Brad Shepik

"It sounds pretty damn good to me."
- Michael Sarin

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
