Following numerous requests from the audiophile community, Linn Records has produced a stunning new collection of demonstration quality tracks that showcase our artists at their very best. Encompassing classical, jazz & Celtic music, the Linn Super Audio Surround Collection Vol. 2 exemplifies Linn Records’ commitment to quality, originality & diversity. Many of the artists featured have never before appeared on a Linn Records compilation disc.
Making their debut are La Scala & Covent Garden favourite Emma Bell, whose soaring soprano voice garnered her numerous 5 star reviews for her 2005 album “Handel Operatic Arias”, the inimitable Girl Talk, a trio of divas whose witty & politically incorrect showstoppers have delighted UK audiences for 7 sell-out years, Ian Shaw, recently nominated for ‘Best Vocalist’ at this year’s BBC Jazz Awards & named Britain’s leading male jazz singer by The Guardian & Baroque specialist Alison McGillivray whose debut album “Geminiani Cello Sonatas” was awarded Best Classical CD of 2005 by the Financial Times. Tracks by William Carter & Ian Bruce, not originally released on the SACD format, have been specially mastered for inclusion on this compilation.
Particularly exciting is the inclusion of a new track by Barb Jungr, from her new album “Walking In The Sun” released in October 2006. This is the 1st time a new track has ever been previewed on a Linn compilation.
