Claire Martin and Carol Kidd, both early signings to the Linn label, have amassed enviable discographies; Claire Martin has established herself as a tour de force on the UK jazz scene winning at the British Jazz Awards seven times!

Representing singer/songwriters are Barb Jungr, who is renowned as 'one of the best interpreters of Bob Dylan' and Emily Barker whose compelling song cycle, ‘Dear River' topped the UK Record Store Chart. Championing Linn's commitment to home-grown Scottish talent is newcomer Amy Duncan, whose 2013 album ‘Cycles of Life' is a beautifully crafted album of quietly powerful songs.

Names Linn fans will be happy to see back on the bill include Tommy Smith and The Palladian Ensemble.

The strength of Linn's classical catalogue is clear and resulted in the label being named Gramophone ‘Label of the Year' 2010.  Many have enjoyed long associations with Linn, making memorable recordings whilst newer signings such as Katherine Bryan continue the high standard.

James Jolly (Gramophone) contributes booklet notes charting Linn's path to its 40th anniversary year.

The LP is manufactured by the prestigious Pallas firm in Germany, which is highly regarded by vinyl lovers everywhere.
