Can I vhime in?  Bob did not play in the Rock Awards.  He was already busy oing a lot of advertising work and has already shifted to jazz during that time.  But he was my musical director in our first CitiLite Jazz awards or something of that sort.

The "Here, There and Everywhere" version was recorded just for the fun of it.  It was not meant to be a commercial release.  I nevertheless, played it at NU107 and CitiLite and the reception was quite positive.

His "Inner Country" is a really good work of art.  He fused different beats, sounds, languages and other influences.  His "Amone" was exceptional; when I first heard it, I thought it was some foreign language.  Bisaya pala.  He is really a genius when it comes to music and arrangements.

He is working on a new album which he promised to send me a copy.

Bob is a humble, quiet, simple, unassuming and a very good friend.  He did all the musical arrangements and conducted the orchestra during my wedding eons ago - free or charge.

NU used to also play his version of Here, There, and Everywhere on the radio.  It's almost like the George Benson arrangement except with heavy distortion and pinch harmonics left and right. 

if you'll notice the pics, yung sa strange storm album may "NU 107.5" sa baba!! hehe!! hey guys, wala akong mahanap na magttransfer from tape to CD's. bka may alam kayo!! :-D


madali lang yan bro ... kuha ka ng tape player tapos yung line out ng tape player mo pasok mo sa line in ng pc mo tapos gamitin mo yung nero wave editor ... click mo yung record ng nero  tapos play tape, output wave format ... ...yung mga jack lang gamit ka ng baby jack maliit na convert para kasya sa pc line in..

He even showed Bob's 70's strat.

I cannot seem to find the master of the 1st album, but I have a CD copy of "Strange Storms."  Will talk to Bob and Goff and see what we can do.

I don't remember Bob having a Strat. If that is the sunburst one, that is actially Goff's, but Bob used it from time to time.  Bob has only two guitar, cherry Gibson 335 which he used in his Berklee days and a white Jackson which was used in the two albums and a lot of the ads we used to do together.  That Jackson was bought by Goff in the US when he went on a vacation; this was before the start of the recording of the first album.

i also attended the mike pedero workshop with dantuts.
When sir mike let us listen RP... I WAS BLOWN AWAY!
the guitar, the recording , the vocals leagues beyond!!
sobrang ganda pa ng recording. Its wierd how RP's
recording which was around 80's is far more superior
than the recording of most bands today. galing!

uy boss leech! post ka ng clips ah!!!

SO TRUE! Classic ang recording, so advance that time. Di kulob at hilaw. Hindi minadali.

First time I heard While Angels March, akala ko foreign... yun pala RP! Too bad, I didn't bought their LP (plaka) when I had the chance. The guitar is so brown sounding, solo is spot on. Walang sayang na nota. Bob Aves rocks!

Please let us know if there's any mp3s, I'm a big fan here. Star strucked too. Salamat!

Fuzzy early memory in college, i think Bob Aves guested on a late night talk show in the late 90s and played some ethnic and jazz fusion.

I was alive in the forest
I was cut by the cruel axe
In life I was silent In death I sweetly sing
