Douglas McGowan is an author, videographer, label owner, former radio show host, and new age music revivalist. He runs Yoga Records and Ethereal Sequence, and he curated the acclaimed compilation I Am the Center: Private Issue New Age Music in America, 1950-1990. That compilation is my favorite release of 2013, and in many ways it paved the way for projects like Gentle Daps to garner interest in 2014. So I'm elated to present Douglas as the first ever Gentle Daps guest contributor.
It's no secret that Douglas is a longtime collector of cassettes and vinyl. For Gentle Daps V, he dug through his physical collection and digitized a handful of gems, some of which are impossibly rare.
