"Rain, Norway's most well kept secret has been betrayed and solved! This great band has only released a very rare 45 EP as a soundtrack for the Norwegian movie Rivalen. Very much like Frank Zappa and The Mothers, Rain's complex compositions are based on the skills of modern classic composers such as Varèse and Stravinsky. As a strong influence, they've mentioned Vanilla Fudge. Ten great tracks with horns and orchestra arrangement, with great fuzz guitar, Hammond organ and amazing vocals. A Norwegian rock band who had the urge to exceed limits, both musically and technically. Rain was Carl Jorgen Kionig (drums), Knut Heljar Hagen (organ, piano, vocals, bass), Asmund Feidje (guitar, violin, vocals, bass). This album was recorded in 1969/1970, and beside their seven original compositions they play mind-blowing versions of 'A Day In The Life,' 'Strawberry Fields Forever' and 'Isolation.' Their very complex and difficult arrangements required a lot of practice to turn their concerts into a total experience with a spectacular psychedelic light-show and experiments with 'surround' sound. What a great album this is!" 500 numbered/heavy sleeve/180 gram pressing/printed inner sleeve/insert.
