Allan Taylor Leaving At Dawn Hybrid Multi-Channel & Stereo SACD
After Allan Taylor´s latest solo album on Stockfisch presenting Allan as solo
performer with his voice and guitar, he releases the SACD Leaving At Dawn on
which his new songs are supported by many studio musicians with instruments as
well as with vocals: Ian Melrose (git.), Chris Leslie (violin & viola), Hans-Jörg
Maucksch (bass), Hrólfur Vagnsson (acc.) - to name just four of them.
The twelve tracks on this album are a mature singer’s retrospective covering
moments, places and stories of biographical, personal and historical nature. A
troubadour’s love songs, intimate memories of family life, echoes of sweet
rebellion in the year of 68 – Taylor has thoroughly enjoyed the lightness of
being while it was still not unbearable. Later he transcended those memories of
New York and Amsterdam and Brighton Beach and through his art made them valid
and lasting for ever.
That young man once left his home in the footsteps of the beat poets – wanting
to be a wandering minstrel. That he became this kind of artist is proof enough
of Allan Taylor’s successfully doing what he once promised to his father. He has
most certainly not become an "almost man". In his existence as a man and as a
poet he has grown into a mature personality taking his share from life
courageously, generously passing on the gift.
