About this album

‘Fire Escape’ is the 4th release on Woodland Recordings by The Great Park and the first of 3 albums Stephen Burch recorded and released in 2008.

The album was recorded in 3 locations in Brighton - one of them the basement of an Oxfam charity shop - with Sam Collins (Mid-west Blues) playing electric guitar. Four of the songs are first-takes. On the other 2 songs, one of which is 12 minutes long, all the instruments are played by Stephen Burch.

‘Fire Escape’ was recorded in a week in spring 2008, and released immediately in an edition of 30 copies. These have all now sold out. A reissue may be available in the future, although a remastered version of ‘Pure Black Coal’ can be found on the TIMEZONE released cd ‘The Great Park (Timezone Records)’ which is available at or at .
