Power House Music Library (002-030)
« on: March 22, 2023, 11:35:12 PM »
I know a few people have requested albums from Power House, so here are my CD rips.

UPDATE: I have now uploaded all of my Power House CD's. I do not have PH-CD 001 nor any after PH-CD 030.

The wide range each disk covers is notable. I expected these 90s over-saturated rock tracks I am pretty much fed up off - you know, that "music" where an overdrive guitar takes 80% of the audio and 20% a drumset coming from a ROLAND synthesizer. And that's it. But no, it's a great variation!

If you can't find something pleasing your ears in these sets, then I don't know  :D
Especially disk 8, Lacings, is full of relaxing 90s TV/infomercial/teleshopping vibes.

A question though, since Discogs can't help me: Can you photograph/scan the album art/the disk for WORLD BEAT (003) and ON THE ESGE(010)? I'd like to add the art to the file tag but it's not on Discogs or the "unapproved" pipeline either.

A funny goof is at disk 8, Arctic Circle, at 1:05 you can hear the synthesizer being tapped briefly in error.

Overall a great compilation!

This is the best I could find. I downloaded it from Nichion:

I can not download from MEGA because Windows saying the file is containing an Trojan virus.

Someone else have the same issue?

I will take these for now. Collecting rare stuff is always a wild swinging back and forth between "finding and upgrading" :D

I use Kaspersky and everything seems alright.

Tear It Up from the Rock The House cd was used as a theme in WCW.

Thanks!

Odd, as I also use Windows but have no problems, though I am the one who uploaded them. They are straight CD rips just rar'ed up. I will try and upload them to Google Drive over the next week.

I will add that to my tasks to do over the next week.

That is right, WCW used the following:
PH-CD 002 - Rock The House
PH-CD 002 - Tear It Up
PH-CD 004 - Back Stroke
PH-CD 006 - Auld Lang Syne
PH-CD 006 - Deck The Halls
PH-CD 006 - Hark The Herald Angels Sing
PH-CD 006 - Jingle Bells
PH-CD 006 - We Three Kings

WCW is the music that I collect

I would like to ask once again for the cover art/disk of the albums which have no Discogs image. It'd be great to have high resolution thumbnails.

Big thank you for these, I must have missed this post. I never heard of this one before Craig, let alone seen one of the actual CDs.
