Reason #30: The Best of Collegiate A Cappella (BOCA)
Since 1995, the BOCA series has served as the premier compilation recording for collegiate a cappella. Each year, the result is not only a fantastic CD, but a sort of scrapbook to commemorate the very best acts that are recording across the country each year. What’s more, this collection is something to aspire to. Groups have all sorts of different goals, but among the loftiest is to make this disc—a feat that demands a tremendous amount of care in arranging, rehearsing, recording and producing. The end product is, without fail, a real treat for listeners.
I love it!
