FLASKET BRINNER-S/T, LP, 1971, SWEDEN





Quintessential rustic psych/jazz/ethno festival moves issued on the legendary Silence Records from this Bo Hansson-associated crew in the grand Swedish tradition of Arbete Och Fritid, Harvester/International Harvester and Trad Gras Och Stenar. One year later, they'd develop into something a good sight more focused and fusion-directed (though no less splendid) on their double LP "Flasket", but during this era of Flasket Brinner, which roughly translates to The Flesh Is Burning (though it mainly sounds like the weed was burning at this stage) these boys were content to blithely revel in freewheeling bucolic jams steeped in native folkloric traditions.

Actually, it's "pork" rather than "flesh", but that little detail aside, thank you for posting one of my favourite LP's ever. It sizzles...
Love, Leo Rattans.

anyone else the zappa influence in the track 'gunnars dilemma'? (and to a lesser extent, in the next track 'bengans vals')

Hi: I love your blog. I am looking for my Cousin Jaleh Kerendi; one of the Balerina's in Ballet Théâtre de Maurice Béjart. If you know how to get in touch with her I really appreciate that. I know she lived in Milan with her late Husband Paolo and her two kids. I am her cousin Rachel Kerendi Rachelyne@gmail.com. Thanks
Do you have any stories about her. I read the story you had about her Husband Paolo Bortoluzzi.
