专辑介绍:

最顶级的录音 最发烧的人声
Stockfisch唱片录音採用二十八位元的类比数位转换器、NAGRA-D等超发烧设备录制,并以B&W NAUTILUS 801进行鑑听。

刘名振主笔
来自英国的保罗.史帝文生是典型的民谣音乐家,自小在英国受Beatles薰陶开始音乐之路,接著爱上了由保罗.麦卡尼所制作的詹姆斯.泰勒,并由赛门与葛芬柯、鲍布.迪伦等艺人得到对吉他演奏的啟发。在多年走唱生涯后,现在定居在法国,以翻译维生,但是在工作之餘仍然进行各种演唱与灌录唱片的工作。由保罗史帝文生的歌声你可以清楚的得知他的影响。咬字清晰、音準奇佳,带著有点洁癖的乾净歌声,像是小溪般静静的流过,舒适而清澈。

这张专辑的编曲让人激赏,除了吉他以外,多样化乐器的运用都让人耳目一新。像是「Ready toRain」的风琴让曲子充满了宗教般的圣洁感。在其他的曲子中,从土巴号、手风琴、木管以及各种打击乐器都被拿来作为素材,展现了与一般民谣唱片大不相同的风味。不过,所有的乐器都是自然发声,没有任何电子合成乐器参与,主导的也还是保罗的歌声与吉他声。末曲「Big Meeting Day」是Stockfisch民谣唱片中少有的欢愉气氛编曲,以管乐与小鼓为主的编曲听起来有著节庆般的活泼气氛,曲末还有壮观的烟火四射场面!当然,这一切都只靠声音来呈现,都是靠著Gunter Pauler优秀的录音技巧进行完美的捕捉,在优秀的音响系统上聆听时,你只能说这真是个音响奇观!

The singer-songwriter from Durham, England, now living in France, presents his second CD "These Days" All those who – two years ago – felt like struck by lightning by Stephenson’s first CD "Light Green Ball" will find again so many things which are easy to love – the Beatles, James Taylor, being head over heels in love on a glorious spring day.

How does the sensitive Englishman’s song-writing work? Stephenson takes stories he has lived through himself or has been told by others, and poeticizes his material into a finely woven texture so appealing that one feels like singing along with Paul on first listening to his songs.

引用
For the connoisseurs I actually just have to make the announcement, that there's another CD released in the series of producer Gunter Pauler. While they're going on their way to fetch a copy, I can explain to the other music lovers what they might expect. A singer-songwriter, in this case Englishman Paul Stephenson, who already saw his earlier CD "Light Green Ball" released on the Stockfisch label. He brings us eleven relaxed -nicely rippling like a brooklet- self-penned folksongs, his voice is reminiscent of James Taylor. The recording technics are the refined cream of the crop, there are "audiophile collecters" who buy the CD's only for this reason! The songs are arranged in a particularly fine way, every instrument is perfectly balanced in the mix.

Besides Paul himself, who plays his acoustic guitar, we find here the regular musicians of Stockfisch, guitarplayer extra-ordinaire Chris Jones was still around for these recordings, virtuoso multi-instrumentalist Beo Brockhausen, Hans-Jorg Maucksch on fretless bass, Siard de Jong (violins, mandolin, mandola), singer-songwriter Mike Silver takes care of the backing vocals and concluding piece "Big Meeting Day" is sent off with horns for the sound of the "marching band", shading off into fireworks.

The CD-booklet comes with all possible information and photographs to match. Paul's lyrics are simple and tell about people he knows ("Engineering Frank" is a very strong one, I think and "The Making Of Zachary" has a boy from Amsterdam in the leading part), also about events he witnessed. "Millionaire" has a dry sense of humor and "Captain Of The Loving Kind" is over-the-top sentimental, but the pilot who landed his jumbo in Goose Bay, just to have a baby transported to the hospital, was one of KLM's (Royal Dutch Airlines) finest!

Detailed Description

The singer-songwriter from Durham, England, now living in France, presents his second CD "These Days". All those who, two years ago, felt like struck by lightning by Stephenson’s first CD "Light Green Ball" will find again so many things which are easy to love – the Beatles, James Taylor, being head over heels in love on a glorious spring day.

How does the sensitive Englishman’s song-writing work? Stephenson takes stories he has lived through himself or has been told by others, and poeticizes his material into a finely woven texture so appealing that one feels like singing along with Paul on first listening to his songs.

As usual Stockfisch’s renowned musicians on this CD deliver the whole spectrum between the slightest sonic impressionism and the bold, dynamic brushstrokes of the artist-composer.

A true mark of genius is to be found in the last track with its joyful tune reminiscent of folk dances of old – then fading into the noise of fireworks. Even in the midst of summer you can feel the icy air of winter, typically full of fire, smoke and champagne to be drunk in a "wonderful world".

"Light Green Ball” was a poem, and this is also true of "These Days”. Like planning a journey into the unknown with the friends of one’s golden youth, perhaps a journey to one’s own self. Verse of a time full of promise, written of what was or what could have been. Maybe you will find your loved ones there too? In Paul Stephenson’s music the answer is a comforting "yes", beautiful like light itself, captured in the cut of a diamond: Heaven on Earth Today.
