For more than 50 years Allan Taylor, born in Brighton in 1945, has been considered as the consummate performer, a writer of literary gracefulness whose troubadour chronicles encapsulate the realism of otherwise unsung heroes, otherwise uncharted lives.

His songs are written from a lifetime of travelling; always the observer passing through, each song is a vignette of life, like a story told over a drink in a bar. Each has an integrity that tells you it comes from something real; characters come to life like people you know and places become as familiar as if you had been there.

Allan Taylor: “Over the last few years it has been gratifying to know that so many people are interested in our vinyl releases. Perhaps it’s not surprising, as the quality of the production is, as always, excellent, and a testament to the skill of our team.

I have chosen these particular tracks mainly because I know that those of you who play the vinyl records usually play them on superb sound systems, and therefore appreciate the quality. How this sound is achieved I don’t know; I’m just the guy who writes the songs and performs them, but the Stockfisch team are the experts in recording. I’m grateful to the team for continuing to work to such high standards to make my music sound so good.”

About his new song, A Giant Red Balloon, which makes its premiere on this release:

“This song is metaphor for chance and adventure. Too many people live their lives with their head down – not looking up – so they never see the red balloon that is always there – but one has to search for it. And when you see the red balloon, take hold of the rope that hangs from and let it lift you off the ground and you’ll see the world.”
