This SACD-Maxi release emerged from a chain of events: During the HIGHEND exposition in Munich Allan Taylor happened to get to know Dieter Burmester, head of Burmester Audiosystems. Dieter told him about the sound system that he had designed for the new Porsche Panamera. It was then that Allan told Dieter his story of why he had bought a Porsche and that he had written a song about the true story behind.
For this reason Stockfisch Records produced and recorded together with Dieter Burmester and the international Porsche magazine, Christophorus, a five track MAXI containing also the song "A Promise and a Porsche".
In addition to the five audio tracks on this hybrid SACD, the CD-Audio layer also contains CD-ROM video content: A 10 minute extract from Stockfisch Blu-ray Disc/DVD-Video "The Endless Highway" - a documentary film about Allan Taylor's life as a musician. Allan says, "What we aimed to do was to make a film about a traveling troubadour, how he gets his ideas for songs, how he writes songs, how he plays the concerts and how he travels from city to city - we wanted to show the lifestyle of a singer-songwriter."
All songs written and composed by Allan Taylor.
