Brother Music present an official reissue and first CD issue of Laid Back's self-titled debut album, originally released in 1981. Released by Laid Back on their own label in a carefully re-edited edition including seven bonus tracks. Remastered by the band from the original 4-track audio tapes. Includes the timeless early hit "Bolivia" and the classic "Roger" which was covered by MGMT. In the beginning, Laid Back studio was a 4-track studio. Many of the songs from the first album were recorded on 4-track, including "Bolivia". However, in the process the band upgraded to an 8-track and re-recorded "Bolivia", the version that made the album. Listening back to the 4-track version, it has got the groove that was lost on the 8-track version. Laid Back were always going for the best sound. All of the band's big hits are first takes --that's where the magic is. Much time and effort were spent to restore the 4-track version, without changing or adding anything. Just editing and improvement of sound. Engineered by Bjørn Winnem.
