180 Gram Vinyl Record
Gatefold jacket, 180-gram LP
For 40 years Allan Taylor, born in Brighton in 1945, has been a graceful troubadour chronicling the realism of otherwise unsung heroes living otherwise uncharted lives.
On previous albums Taylor sang songs about the road, about all the different countries and all the hotel rooms... The new album goes deeper — into time and ultimately to the recognition: "All is one". A powerful philosophical statement delivered with virtuoso lightness.
Someone who is approaching 70 and calls his album All Is One obviously has something to say. Just recently Allan Taylor faced one of life's tests — a severe shoulder disfunction prevented him from playing guitar — not an easy situation for a musician. In the meantime that is thankfully all healed and forgotten. Not shying away from the strain and frustration involved, he worked his way back to his instrument, his fans and to the recording studio at Stockfisch Records. He could have presented this album as a big comeback, a resurrection, but that is simply not the style of this master of contemplative tones.
