ANDERS KOPPEL-AFTENLANDET & REGNBUEFUGLEN, LP, 1977, DENMARK




Shot through with alternating currents of melancholia and festivity that are almost piercingly poignant in their evocation of some lost Scandanavian hippy idyll, this supremely beautiful solo album from Savage Rose keyboard player Koppel scratches an obscure itch ordinarily only reached by Bo Hansson and Supersister.

Hi, looks like there's a problem with the zip file. the directory with the mp3's fails to unzip. have tried to work around it but no go.

can you please check into it when you get a chance.

Dan-I just downloaded it and unzipped it with Stuffit expander and it worked perfectly for me. I dunno....

I had the same problem, it won't unzip the audio, only the images. Sounds like it will work on a Mac though, I'll try it on my mac and see if it works JP

Okay....since it seems the vast majority of you have had this problem with the rapidshare download, I've gone ahead and re-uploaded this title via mediafire. With that said, as Mediafire have deleted files of mine in the past, all future uploads will continue to be via rapidshare.

hi there - hmm, mediafire isn't solving the unzip problem - every time i try using an extraction wizard, i am asked for a password for the audio files!!! using winrar is no better...
any idea what's up with it?!!!
many thanks - phil.///

hi!
i too downloaded the mediafire one. it doesn't work either. however, i unzipped the original rapidshare one on a mac using stuffit. worked straight away.
hope this helps.

Using Winrar there are no problem.
Select all single file, not folders
and don't extract paths
the problem is in the folder's name

thank you very much for this wonderful blog

Sorry, I still don't understand how you do it, frank4 and mutantsounds..; please, elaborate. I use Winrar. Would you mind telling me step by step what to do to get these files?
Excuse my ignorance..

The program "7-Zip" did the trick. Thanks for this tip in a comment on another upload, over the moon!

If anyone comes across this album and is still struggling to unzip it, here's the deal:

1. Open the ZIP file (with Winrar or any other)

2. Rename the folder called "Aftenlandet..." to "Aftenlandet" The "..." is the problem.

I've had the LP since it came out. But no record player for 10 years. Fantastic to hear the music again. Originally the music was from a film. Some sort of a fantasy or a nightmarish dream about a fascist take-over. Aftenlandet means 'The Evening Land' and the concept comes from german social critique, and is used to metaphorically desribe the society when totalitarian and fascist tendencies become evident. So it's more like political leftish music than scandinavian hippie music. Anders Koppel also plays in the band Bazar (a band originating back in the late 1970'ies. Some of the compositions from Aftenlandet is also being played by Bazar and can be heard at a fantastic double live LP from around 1980.
