Our associated label, Stylo Magic has a particular emphasis on European steelers . The first of these is a collection of original recordings by the Spanish player of the acoustic steel , Daniel Arnau and we still have copies of that one. We are working on two new releases and we're not sure at this point which one will be ready first . One will be by Alex Manara , the other Serge Krotkoff ( the Russian Eagle of New York) . Stylo Magic cds are only available from this website , our chums at Earwig Studios in balmy Bolton and François & Rosine Charle's lutherie in Galérie Véro-Dodat, Paris . Recently 2 or 3 stores in Japan have started stocking them too...please ask if you need details
As well as our own releases on Grass Skirt and Stylo Magic we are now stocking the fine releases on the MAscott label operated by our good friend Mike Scott in Canada.
