ANDREAS ROHDE visited our Northeim studio in 1983. It was impossible not to notice his admiration for LEO KOTTKE. The tuning and the selection of strings on Rhode’s 12-string GIBSON B-25 and the GUILD F 212C sound quite like those of his idol. Of course, the lyrics and the timbre of his voice remain distinctly his own. We have documented the state of our previous analog studio technology in numerous photographs in the booklet. For the second volume of “Analog Pearls”, we played the two-track master tape on the same TELEFUNKEN M15A that Andreas Rohde’s recordings from 1983 were mixed on. Then, our MEITNER 1-bit DSD-Converter managed the leap into the digital age. Thus you can hear a native 1-bit DSD Layer on the SACD. Of course this SACD contains the special HYBRID-LAYER as well, so you can also listen to "Analog Pearls Vol.2" on a regular CD player, as you can with every Stockfisch-SACD!
