Stockfisch Vinyl Collection Vol.2

It is astonishing and pleasing at the time: in the face of downloads and mp3 there is still - and even growing - a market demand for the vinyl longplayer, which is already 60 years old. Stockfisch therefore releases the second volume of our Vinyl-Collection containing ten tracks featuring known and new Stockfisch artists:

We compiled the tracks for this Vinyl Collection Vol.2 following the established criteria of the „closer to the music“ compilations: On one hand we want to offer samples of current Stockfisch albums, on the other hand we would like to give a sneak peek on our future CDs.


For the first time available on vinyl are one of Allan Taylor´s songs from the Porsche/Burmester session, Ewen Carruthers “That Train“ - paying homage to the English singer-songwriter who departed in 2010, Paul O‘Brien - the Irish melancholic songwriter from Canada, the Australian folk-duo Carl & Parissa, and David Munyon´s new album „Pretty Blue“.

The unreleased song from Katja Maria Werker´s first Stockfisch CD „mitten im sturm“, the guitar piece played by the virtuoso Ralf Illenberger, who had recorded with Stockfisch Records in the 70ies, and lives in the U.S.A. today, furthermore a wonderful song from Paul Stephenson´s third album, which will be released 2012, are among those we are excited to introduce.

And we are glad to present an unreleased piece with the outstanding guitarist Chris Jones, who passed away in 2005. During a studio session in 2001 a remarkable instrument, a Dreadnought made by Moritz C. Sattler (Manzanita), caught Chris´eyes. He couldn´t stop improvising with this guitar - and happily we let the tape running ...

"As samplers go, this is one of the best. An excellent cross section of artists from the Stockfish catalog. I am especially taken by the cuts from Alan Taylor ("The Beat Hotel" in particular) and Chris Jones. Sonics are clean, clear and crisp, with an exceptional sense of timbre.
