The heavy, creaking iron door moaned, and with a wave of my hand, I removed the dangling cobwebs sticking to my face. At the end of the long corridor, I found a sealed, heavy box. I wiped the moist off it, broke the lock and opened the box. There, inside, were rows of tapes, stored safely from intruders, forgotten by time. Hours and hours of unreleased Peter Scion recordings right before my eyes.
Well, actually, I opened the closet door and with some effort, I took down a cardboard box which indeed contained several hours of unreleased material. I had forgotten what a lot of it actually was; there were 4 track masters, rehearsal tapes, live recordings and outtakes, all in one jumbled up hodge-podge of tiny plastic boxes from the days before mp3's. The most striking find must be an entire, previously unreleased album recorded around 2000. I had a faint notion of some of the songs, but I was far from sure there were so many that they make up a whole album. I am already in the process of digitalizing the tapes, and this album will be made available in the near future here on the blog.
The rest of the material, spread over an amount of circa 70 tapes will also be released, at least in parts. Some of it has less than acceptable sound quality, but some of it sounds OK. I'm quite excited about these discoveries, and it will be a pleasure to share the best of them with you!
