Numbered edition of 500, glossy heavy sleeve on 180 gram vinyl with insert. Originally released in Norway, 1970. "Guitarist, vocalist, composer and artist, Svein Finjarn can be safely called a legend in American rock. He began playing guitar and acting before he was ten years old, and in the fall of 1961, he became the first Norwegian who played in a rock band with a fender Stratocaster. In autumn 1969 he helped put together super heavy rock group Jumbo with Freddy Lindquist, Leif Jensen and Tore Syvertsen. The group had two singles, but were dissolved during the work on their first LP. Finjarn and Jensen made the album complete with Lindquist, Arild Krosby, Arne Kvikstad and Grete Christoffersen. Yngvar Holm wrote an enthusiastic article that was published by the jacket. Briton John Mills was the producer for the album, which came out in autumn 1970, and that could be placed side by side with the hard, progressive rock from abroad. One of the coolest albums made in Scandinavia. The music follows a great underground concept and hits as strong a bands like Blossom Toes, July, Open Mind -- a real British Psychedelic flowerpower album made in Norway."
