New Album Releases Project 2020-1-25

By: |


NARP, the New Album Releases Project, got its start at NAR, New Album Releases, and back then – January 17,  2018, I had no idea that it would evolve into a project and be still going strong just about two years later. A proper backgrounder can be read here:

In light of NARP’s longevity and my personal/selfish (transparency) predilections, starting on January 4, 2020, NARP will be first published at Dagogo,, and subsequently, the post’s link will be shared as it always has in/on the NARP Facebook group.

The groupings of New Releases, Re-issues, Re-masters and Miscellany shall stay the same. Within Miscellany one might find all manner of live performances, as well as archival/historic recordings.

Note: entries in both bold and larger typeface particularly drew my attention this week.

Share with your friends, share with your enemies. Music does not discriminate, nor should it.

In the interest of making NARP even more portable than it is, I’ve made the list downloadable so it cannot only be read but shared from my Google Drive.

Now NARP is portable, it can be taken wherever one goes.


Criteria for inclusion into the NARP list

David compiles the list every week using the following criteria:

1. The music has to make it to his desk/desktop each week.
2. He has to be interested and intrigued not only by the music’s content but how it sound on his systems.
3. The music must be 99.9% current, within the last month, unless it is of exceptional merits and somehow slips through cracks.
