Dissimilar Views 2 (Double CD) Remastered 2019 with original Korce Project Booklet.

‘Dissimilar Views’ was released in 1995 and represented a change of direction for David Wright, a transition into different directions, although retaining key elements from his early period romanticism.

All of the music was originally written and recorded in 1993/1994, but it wasn’t until 2002 that the double ‘Dissimilar Views 2’, was eventually released. Officially, it was as a download release, but then on limited edition CDr, presenting the original Dissimilar Views with additional music not released at the time of the 1995 CD, for a variety of reasons.

In 2019 David remastered Dissimilar Views 2 for CD release and the first 100 CDs also come with the original Korce Project booklet of poems written by Keith Bromley that inspired much of the music of Dissimilar Views. Although the double album does include all the music from the original Dissimilar Views, its worth noting that several of the tracks are longer on Dissimilar Views 2 (than on Dissimilar Views 1) and that additional music from the Korce Project is included and the tracks are interlinked. The double album was also remastered using a different process than used on the Dissimilar Views remaster, thus giving the whole album a slightly ‘different’ overall feel.

Sequences play an important role on tracks such as the longer version of ‘Albania Part1’ and ‘Turning Tides’ and the 2 versions of the excellent ‘Rysheara’ which remains a David Wright classic. ‘Korce’ with its restless, strident theme and rock percussion is a fine addition to the repertoire and ‘Room of Dolphins’ offers a perfectly chilled oasis of tranquility with some fine arpeggios and piano work. ‘Benny’s Theme’ tugs at the heart strings with subtle instrumental work and delicate textures, whilst ‘Embarou Bay’ offers a more optimistic travelogue. The set concludes with ‘Returning Tides’ clocking in at just under the 10 minute mark it typifies the high quality of the unreleased material throughout.

This commendable release shows how prolific David Wright’s output was at this time. Rest assured if you are unfamiliar with the Korce material and a fan of David Wright in general and ‘Dissimilar Views’ in particular this is a fine collection and fills a gap in the composer’s musical curriculum vitae.

Double album available at single album price! Available to download or as a factory pressed replicated CD double. It is also available as 16bit mp3, flac and apple lossless and 24bit flac and apple lossless. Check out our FAQ page for more information.

1 review for Dissimilar Views 2 (Double CD Remaster)

  1. Steve Roberts

    The Korce Project originated in 1994 as a charity project in conjunction with The Body Shop and David Wright recorded an album’s worth of material after ‘Moments in Time’ which was designed to be sold as a fund raising effort for the desperately poor children in Albania. The music was intended to reflect the experiences of a group of volunteers working with the children and was originally intended to feature alongside the poetry of Keith Bromley, the project originator, and be available from The Body Shop and selected outlets. Unfortunately, through no fault of the composer, the project fell through but a limited edition music cassette (AD8MC Ltd. Edition) was circulated. I was fortunate to get a copy and, in my view, the material was at least as good as other material from this period and an interesting progression from ‘Moments in Time’. The cassette because of its limited availability became quite collectable and also contained the first Fox/Wright collaboration, ‘Meeting at Trevalyn’. Some of the music from the Korce Project appeared on ‘Dissimilar Views’ in different versions (AD9CD) but new material was also included most notably the extended music which comprised the title piece. Hence this double CD set which includes ‘Dissimilar Views’, the main Korce Project suite in its entirety with 14 minutes of additional music, new extended, and alternative versions and other unreleased material digitally remastered.

    Reassessing ‘Dissimilar Views’ it is clear that it represented a change of direction for David Wright a transition into different directions although retaining key elements from the early period romanticism. Sequences play an important role on tracks such as the longer version of ‘Albania Part1’ and ‘Turning Tides’ and the 2 versions of the excellent ‘Rysheara’ which remains a David Wright classic. ‘Korce’ with its restless, strident theme and rock percussion is a fine addition to the repertoire and ‘Room of Dolphins’ offers a perfectly chilled oasis of tranquility with some fine arpeggios and piano work. ‘Benny’s Theme’ tugs at the heart strings with subtle instrumental work and delicate textures, whilst ‘Embarou Bay’ offers a more optimistic travelogue. The set concludes with ‘Returning Tides’ clocking in at just under the 10 minute mark it typifies the high quality of the unreleased material throughout.

    This commendable release shows how prolific David Wright’s output was at this time. Rest assured if you are unfamiliar with the Korce material and a fan of David Wright in general and ‘Dissimilar Views’ in particular this is a fine collection and fills a gap in the composer’s musical curriculum vitae.
