Here we have possibly the best Danish underground album from Denmark recorded in 1971. Shadoks Music just loves every second of this album and they are happy to re-release it on CD. The band was inspired by West Coast bands such as The Byrds, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The powerful music might be compared to Jethro Tull, The Beatles, and Led Zeppelin. A superb combination of heavy progressive and folk stylings, the album also has its very own identity and haunting songs. They have played many great concerts and festivals and became one of the most popular Danish bands. Julian Cope wrote: "Replete with extremely catchy songs, fiery Dervish-like guitar solos, confidently self-referential lyrics from a Wino Weinrichian poet/guitarist, all the while the entire ensemble spewing euphoric vocal harmonies over intricate and furiously hard-edged arrangements, this Album of the Month owes its artistic success not to any great dream of originality, but to the wild spirits of each of its performers and especially that of its primary writer -- one Cy Nicklin -- and his clear desire to contribute highly accessible Hippie Dream music that sat well alongside such million-selling contemporary heroes as The Moody Blues, Crosby, Tween, Nash & Young, Led Zeppelin, Traffic and The Who." Includes unseen photos by Jørgen Angel, and extensive liner notes written by Shadoks friend Claus Rasmussen, based on interviews with Cy Nicklin (lead vocals & guitars), Michael Friis (bass, organ, piano, flute), and others.
