2001 release of what was the 2nd Algarnas Tradgard album; originally recorded in 1973-74, but never released (until this CD rescued these recordings from oblivion). Exact same lineup as witnessed on their epic debut from 1972 Framtiden Är Ett Svävande Skepp, Förankrat I Forntiden (or The Future is a Hovering Ship Anchored in the Past). And what a fantastic offering...it slowly extends into meta-improvisations with distant guitars, heavily effected organs, swirling strings, plenty of space, reaching an early peak-build amidst the detritus floating through the 12-minute "Interstellar Cruise." Later, an Eastern-themed campfire freakout (sitars, tablas, Yod-chant) breaks out, then a bit of the mellow reverbed flute, later still a long vocal loop fade out over some well placed drones. One could say this record has a bit of everything. One would be correct. Astonishing that it has lain dormant in the vaults for so long.
