It's my pleasure.

A fine thing, this one. For those who liked it, let me just mention that we posted the Garbarek-Andersen-Vesala trio a while back. This was the outfit that made the "Triptykon" album for ECM, though this is a concert recording from the Moers festival.

Thanks for this rare gem! But why no more details on it? I guess not all of us are expert on the finnland "old wine" scene. And for shure ther will not scans :(
But a big thanks :))

I'm also no expert on the finnish scene - new or old.
I got the lp-rip from a friend - without artwork...
I got the cover from the web.
And apart from this lp I only know the ECM recordings plus the one with Stanko "Live at Remont" and a solo.
Ah yes - and one with vocals from Love Records plus one with some american musicians.

Do check out this blog. It's very much aligned with what we do here.

onxi, downloading this now and just wanted to thank you and let you know link is still good although RS is down to a crawl 29.? KB/sec as a free user. Do you know what year this was recorded?

onxidlib said...

It was recorded August 25, 1970 in Finland. All my posts have a text-file (in the download) which contains all the relevant information.
At the beginning here at IS I wasn't aware that it is useful to offer the infos in the post... now I know it better...

onxidlib said...

Concerning the low doanload speed. I just tried it and although I logged in my account at RS the dl-speed was very low.
For the 217 MB (for Nana) it would ave been more than 30 minutes - normally it would be 4 minutes...
Hopefully they have some maintenance going on...
