Totally as killer as you'd expect. I wrote a little bit on it for Paris Transatlantic some time ago - who knows, maybe someday it'll get reissued?

Thanks for your comments, gents.

Would be nice to see a proper reissue.

There are at least three other releases with Gunnar Lindqvist.

Lars Resberg Octet (Jazz Society SEP001; 1958)

plus one track on each of the following releases:

Lars Gullin "Bluesport" from 1974 and "Like Grass" 1973 also Lars Gullin.

Both releases from the swedish label Odeon which were reissued as CDs at the end of the 1990s.

Wow, i know i've seen that LP cover before, maybe it was in one of those Wax Poetics Covert Story books? Maybe, not sure.
But thanks, line up looks promising and of course i need to hear something with a cover like that! :)
Thanks!

A fine example from the golden
era of collective improvisations
(65-75) and a very influent
record for the younger Swedish
musicians. Thank you, Onxidlib.

Thank onxidlib for this treasure
Some years ago during an interview for French radio, drummer Raymond Strid say that it was for him a crucial listening experience. This band is totally great and it is also a focus on te swedish music scene of this time when prog, folk and jazz were meeting in the same area.
