Digital Booklet
The Left Banke arrived in 1966 with their hit singles “Walk Away Renee” (ranked #222 on Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Songs Of All Time” list in 2004) and “Pretty Ballerina,” with put them on the forefront of the genre now known as Baroque Pop. Founder Michael Brown left the band before their second album (The Left Banke Too—featuring “There’s Gonna Be A Storm,” the title of the long out-of-print and collectable anthology of their Smash Records repertoire), going on to involvement in other influential groups including Montage, Stories, and The Beckies. In 1978, original members Steve Martin Caro, Tom Finn, and George Cameron reunited to record tracks for Finn’s new publishing deal. The tracks would emerge nearly a decade later in the U.S. as Strangers On A Train. (They also appeared in the U.K. under the title Voices Calling) For the first time, that release is available again, on digital for the first time worldwide. Flash forward to 2001. Brown (who was hardly inactive in his songwriting) invited Caro to lay down vocals on new material he had written. In hopes of sparking a Left Banke resurgence, the tracks were circulated to industry insiders, but were not heard by the public at large. Those six tracks are now available digitally as High Flyer, to complete the Left Banke story. Produced for release by Daniel Coston, Scott Schinder, and Grammy®-winner Cheryl Pawelski, High Flyer presents the last recordings of this groundbreaking band, whose influence is not only still felt, but heard.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
