High resolution cutting! Includes Opus 3 favorite artists Eric Bibb, B.B. Driftwood, Sticks & Stones, Maria Winther and more!
Regardless of slight changes in the material recorded, the one thing which remains constant is the highest possible quality of recording — something for which Opus 3 records has been renowned since its inception 36 years ago. During the last seven years since the release of the Opus 3 Showcase 2005, Opus 3 has recorded a variety of genres, including Bluegrass, Americana and music inspired by the early days of pop and rock music.
Nine of the 13 tracks on Showcase 2013 are vocals, unlike earlier recordings where instrumentals were predominant. And no classical music. (This does not mean that there will not be any classical music recorded in the future, this will depend on what opportunities come Opus 3's way!) Along with Eva Taylor, Tomas Örnberg, Eric Bibb, and Rebecca Sjöberg, lauded long-time Opus 3 performers, five new artists are featured: Maria Winther, B.B. Driftwood, Bert "East" Östlund, Dan & The Electros, and intriguing Therese Mercedes Myrhed, whose "I Can Hear It" is one of the favorites on this compilation.
