Album Notes
[Mahnee Cabase passed away, December 22, 2003. His lyricist and loving wife, Sheila Cabase followed, 22 days later. You can read further on their memorial website at www.cabasemusic.com.]

Creating the album of Manny Cabase compositions had been a true labor of love. So many people with dedication and commitment helped to make this album a reality.

From the album's inception, the man who believed in the project wholeheartedly was the co-producer "Cass" of Anahaw Records of the Philippines. Collaborating with such a positive and talented musician was a privilege.

The album wouldn't have happened if it were not for Nannette Tagimacruz Edillon who spearheaded this project wholeheartedly. She made sure that the link to Producer Cass and to the production team worked while Amapola and Mahnee Cabase were thousands of miles away on tour.

Then came the gifted Filipino musicians who were tireless workers and made the whole experience a pleasure instead of a project. There was Narding Castaneda on solo Guitar, Jun Regalado on drums, Roger Herrera on Bass, the Manila String Ensemble, Cass on 2nd Guitar and many other musicians.

Duplication of the original master tape hapened when music lover and genius of the accordion, Mario Pedone, dubbed as "The Accordion Of The Century" joined the team. Because of his belief in the project and his love for music of any language, and of course his never ending generosity, the CD was finally born in his own production studio in Texas.

The lyrics of all the songs in this album were written by three talented people: The late Saturnino A. Villarino - the man Manny Cabase collaborated with since the 50s producing more than two dozen songs for the Visayan cinema; Sheila Cabase -who excelled in the written word and was Manny's better half; and Manny Cabase himself who wrote some of the lyrics to his own melodies.

Music that does not need language
German is my native language and apart from Amapola singing I listen only to German songs. This beatiful CD makes me forget there is language difference. Cabase music and Amapola singing is for the world no matter what language.

R. Johnson

Great melodies, touching lyrics and wonderful vocals! These compositions are just a touch of the genius of Mr. Cabase, but I'm glad it is now available to the public. Amapola's delivery of the songs is very effective. Quite an inspiring CD! Sort of like Jobim but very Cabase. I highly recommend it.

Benjamin Salustiano

Well produced, well performed, brilliant songs
Manny Cabase may well be one of the the greatest Philippino composer from the South -- popular or classical OPM of the 20th century. Although this album is entitled Manny Cabase Compositions and does indeed contain an excellent sampling of his hit songs, no single album can really contain all of Cabase's greatest hits. If you want all of the Cabase best, you have to buy several CDs performed by numerous Philippine stars like Amapola, Pilita Corrales, Max Surban and others. Nevertheless, this CD is a very good place to start. I highly recommended this CD. Well produced and well performed.
