COMPILATIONS: The Sound Of 1995 - LISTEN

Posted on the 28 February 2014 by Rw/ff @rwffmusic
COMPILATIONS: The Sound Of 1995 - LISTENAt last, it is ready. My epic 1995 compilation, six CDs of incredible music from a glorious year. Remember when pop music was made by musicians who had talent? 1995 was a year that changed many lives as Britpop took the nation by storm and music entered a new (and final) golden age... While parts 1,2 and 6 deals with the indie guitar legends, the other instalments of this compilation delve into more eclectic worlds. 

Truly, there was no better time for me to grow up. Sometimes part of me wishes that I could have been a few years older, so I could have understood Britpop more at the time and experienced it fully. But it was fate that it all happened before my teens. It put me on the right path, at the right age, at just the right time. A few years later it would be a lot more difficult to discover great music in the mainstream, but I got there just in time. If I didn't, I wouldn't be talking to you now. If people told me back then that those were the best days of my life, I wouldn't have believed them. At that age all I wanted to do was grow up. 1995 was a year that changed everything for me, hence why I have spent such a long time writing about it. People will argue that many of the Britpop bands were far from alternative, but to an 11 year old in the mid 90s this really was something new and exciting. Many of the bands and artists who arrived into my life in 1995 have never left. What a year. You can read two rather lengthy articles about my memories of 1995 HERE...
