EGBA-S/T. LP, 1974, SWEDEN


Continuing my program of shares of goodies from the Swedish 70's underground, here's one off the fusionoid tip of the spectrum. The two tracks the occupy side A move from airy Brazilian sounding jazz rock whirlwinds ala Airto Moreira and Flora Purim to elegantly brash early Nucleus/early Passport-like sax groovers, though the flip side's a bit more all over the place, with the sweet slithering flute moves of "Lisa Sleeps" butting up against extended African percussion workouts and a few cuts that trigger my sentimental melody kill-switch.

Oh, I was so much hoping their first album "This Is Not The Use They Are Longing For So They Gonna Be Fascists" and their EP "N'Avez Vous Rien De Mieux" would turn up one day. Can you help? This is very important to me because of a dead friend who was very fond of them and introduced me to them.
