The Media Direct Collection (Media Direct 1999)


A four CD collection with seventy songs.


Ehud Manor, winner of the 1998 Israel Hebrew Music Award, from the collection album’s cover:
“Matti Caspi’s music is, to me, a source of happiness, comfort, and inspiration. When I met him thirty years ago, he was a dancing soldier and sang in the Southern Command military band. The first sounds he played for my ears worked like a magic potion and I heard in them a touching intimate response to feelings I wanted to express in words. Matti’s music is defined by its depth, sensitivity, warmth, humor, sadness, pain, pessimistic optimism and optimistic pessimism. All these components which coexist naturally in our lives, are only rarely linked together in one piece.
Matti’s music is that rare songbird. It never gets old because it’s so original, special and complex as the human soul.
Furthermore, Matti Caspi is a wonderful singer, and don’t let the softness of his voice distract you from the huge technical ability and impressive range.
I love him, and I know I’m not alone in that matter”.


From the Media Direct catalog:
“How can you describe Israeli music without Matti Caspi, the great composer and sensitive singer. How can you imagine Hebrew songs without: “When God First Said”, “Song of the Dove”, “How Come a Star”, “Everlasting Alliance”, “And You”, “My Second Childhood”, “You Took my Hand in Yours”, “A Place for Care”, and dozens of more touching songs. No doubt, Matti Caspi has done to Israeli music what Paul McCartney has done to world pop. And now Media Direct and Matti Caspi are proud to present you the collection containing 70 of his most beloved songs which spread over thirty years of career”.
