Jeff Healey, Steve Earle, Eric Bibb and more on Stony Plain anniversary album

Canadian independent label Stony Plain Records marks 40th anniversary with 3-disc compilation including rarities

Canadian independent label Stony Plain Records will mark 40 years in business with the release of a three-disc compilation album featuring Jeff Healey, Steve Earle, Eric Bibb and many others.

40 Years Of Stone Plain continues owner Holger Petersen’s tradition of launching a retrospective collection every half-decade since the firm’s 10th anniversary in 1986.

And the third disc contains rare and previously unreleased material by Bibb, Duke Robillard, Maria Muldaur and others.

Peterson says: “Putting together this specially-priced set has been a joy. With extensive notes and packaging, this stunning collection of 47 songs will be a joyful surprise for true music fans everywhere.”

The collection is released on June 3 and is available for pre-order.
