Isampol mo to...Dong Abay's CD

Here's an interesting release from last year...Dong Abay's SAMPOL. I thought this was only (like what the title suggested) a sampler EP, a teaser for his upcoming album but it turns out it has about 8 songs. A full album that has Dong Abay with his acoustic guitar doing socio-political folk songs.

You can never go wrong with Dong Abay's songs, he is a poet and a great lyricist and commands respect, not only from different music fans, but also from fellow musicians. You have to listen intently to his songs and for sure you will be thinking about the issues he's trying to tell you. He is half of the writing duo of Yano and Pan, and he is at ease whether he is in a band or doing solo stuff like this CD and I can say that all his work is essential no matter what critics might say. I believe that he just came out with a new album under the name "dongabay", and most of these songs on the SAMPOL CD would appear on the new album but with full band arrangements. This new group that played in his new album has 2 ex-Eraserheads/1 ex-EHeads (one from The Dawn and one from Sandwich and one more from Cambio/Fatal Posporos). So it should be an exciting new album to check out. Now if only I can find someone to buy me a copy...
Please email Dong Abay
