Dean Peer's Think...It's All Good CD, his live European release recorded in a 300 year old Mennonite church in Amsterdam, is a very live, very raw, 2 track recording of some friends jamming in a church recorded straight to disc. Only a selection of the actual material was transferred to CD. No dubs, editing or any other type of shenanigans. This way of working captures the moment as it was. Mistakes, background noises? It's all there, but not in any annoying way. Dean Peer is an innovative bass player who produces unknown sounds from his bass guitar. The addition of tabla and other percussion instruments plus such rarities as ocarina and Jew's harp make the palettes of sounds very rich. The purist recording techniques without any mixing and the minimalist micing techniques produce a highly dynamic sound. Few recordings have ever achieved such a sonically holistic effect. Fewer still with as diverse an array of musical elements. The music seems almost to bypass the senses, leaving an impression that remains in the mind long after the disc has ended.
