The fascinating story behind Eldred Stebbing and the Stebbing recording legacy is now available.
From pioneering violins and 78 records, to the singers, songwriters, engineers and producers who have pooled their talents through the decades to make musical magic in the studios. Step inside the Galaxie nightclub of the 1960s, track the evolution of the Zodiac record label and witness the Stebbing family's relentless pursuit of excellence in the face of industry politics, changing technologies and financial risk. This is a story that embodies New Zealand's entrepreneurial spirit; a story of how determination, resourcefulness and creativity combined to create an enduring Kiwi success story.
Richly told and lavishly illustrated, this warts-and-all nostalgic read is told through the artists, the musicians, the bands, the songwriters, the engineers and, for the first time, the wider Stebbing family itself.
