May 7, 2014: Dino Pacifici's first recording, 'Become a Man' has become a personal favourite album of mine. It was pressed in a quantity of 500 copies and has become hot in the collector market - for good reason. The album has also received a lot of airplay on this website. Thanks to Dee for allowing folks to stream the album on mocm.ca. "It was recorded and mixed in my friend's eight-track studio in a converted lawnmower shed. Glad you are enjoying it. I started writing the songs when I was 13 and finished the writing at 19. The album was then recorded. Great experience!"-Dino Pacifici
