Arbete och Fritid - Arbete och Fritid
(MNW 39P Swe-73 EX 400:-)

Arbete & Fritid experimented with several different styles changing both members and musical direction with every recording. The core group was Roland Keijser, Kjell Westling, Torsten Eckerman and later Tord Bengtsson with Ove Karlsson being the only constant member. Almost everybody were multi-instrumentalists!

The band's 1973 on MNW Records marked the beginning of a new era for the band. The connection to traditional music is still evident but absorbed into the pulsating drone of electric guitars garnished with oriental fanfares. It is a highly accomplished album and may be the band's best ever.

Original Swedish pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded Excellent!
Bode, Johnny - Styrman Janssons Frestelser
(Rondex S-301 Swe-73 EX 275:-)

Johnny Bode (1912-1983) har av många beskrivits som en amoralisk mytoman och enfant terrible. Trots att han gjorde sig socialt omöjlig under stora delar av sitt liv har han postumt fortsatt att väcka uppmärksamhet, inte minst på grund av skivan BORDELLMAMMAS VISOR, vilken gjort att han anses som en förgrundsgestalt inom den så kallade könsrocken. På skivan sjöng Johnny Bode tillsammans med Lillemor Dahlqvist. Hon lovades anonymitet, men ett sådant löfte vägde mycket lätt när det kom från Bode. Framgången följdes upp med bland andra skivorna BORDELLMAMMAS DOTTER, STYRMAN JANSSONS FRESTELSER, SEXREVYN STIG PÅ och singeln VI TVÅ ÄR EJ SOM DE ANDRA. Den sistnämnda är troligen den första skivan i Sverige med homosexuellt tema.
Bravado Bravado - Bravado Bravado
(Hawk LP-2121 Swe-89 EX 275:-)

Anders Folke Rönnblom är en av pionjärerna när det gäller att kombinera visor och rock i Sverige. Under tidigt 70-tal tillhörde han de artister som ansågs mest lovande och intressanta för svensk rock. Rönnblom tillhörde aldrig den alternativa musikrörelsen, trots att han verkade under dess storhetstid och trots att många av hans texter präglades av samhällsengagemang.

"Bravado Bravado" från 1989 innehåller bl a en duett med Kajsa Grytt på "Vårregn".

Detta exemplar är signerat av Anders F Rönnblom på baksidan.
Broberg, Robban - Jubileums Skiffle 58/68
(Grand Prix GP-9931 Swe-68 EX 275:-)

Skiffle var en stor fluga på 50-talet; sång på engelska – gärna med något folkloristiskt tema – till gitarr/mandolin/fiol, gärna en hembyggd bas av en resväska och ett kvastskaft och tvättbräda i sättningen. Robbans Skiffle Group var en av de främsta skifflegrupperna i Sverige och leddes av Robert Karl-Oskar Broberg.
Hansson & Karlsson - Rex
(Polydor LPHM-46264 Swe-68 VG 500:-)

This organ and drums-based duo released three instrumental albums of flowing psychedelic soundscapes with a sound all their own. Jimi Hendrix jammed with them while touring Sweden in 1968 and recorded his own version of "Tax Free", making it the duo's most famous song.

Their second album, "Rex", was recorded live and included the track "I Love, You Love" from Stig Björkman's movie "Jag älskar, du älskar”, where Hansson had a small part.

Original Swedish pressing. The vinyl plays with some background noises, but no skips.
Hansson, Bo - Sagan om Ringen
(Silence SRS-4600 Swe-7? VG+ 275:-)

Bo Hansson's musical interpretation of Tolkien's classical fantasy opus became an instant success upon its release. By using simple melodies and a kind of leitmotif technique, it delivers dreamy electronic soundscapes, created predominantly by Hansson's original organ playing.

2nd pressing with "En Vandring i Mörker" on track B1.
Imperial State Electric - Honk Machine
(Psychout PSYCH021LPGREY Swe-15 NM 275:-)

Imperial State Electric was founded by former front man of The Hellacopters, Nicke Andersson.

Imperial State Electric has come to establish itself as one of Europe's premier Rock bands. Their first three albums made it clear that the band touched the essence of Rock' n 'Roll and wielding guitars. Now, "Honk Machine" raises the bet, the band refining and redefining themselves and leaving their opponents in the dust behind.

Limited pressing of 500 on GREY vinyl.
Kaipa - Inget Nytt under Solen
(Decca SKL-5260 Swe-76 VG+ 275:-)

Hailed by many as Sweden's leading progessive band, Kaipa was formed in Uppsala in 1973 by former San Michael's members Hans Lundin and Tomas Eriksson.

Their second album, "Inget nytt under Solen", saw a move toward political lyrics and more musical complexity, with resplendent sound and lush orchestration. The standout track is the 21 minute "Skenet Bedrar", which showcases Lundin's maturity as a songwriter.
Made in Sweden - Made in Sweden
(Sonet SLP-71 Swe-68 EX 600:-)

Formed from the remains of Lea Riders Group in the summer of 1968, this highly influential trio was probably the first exponent of progressive rock in Sweden, showcasing the jazzy guitar style of George Wadenius.

Their debut album is dominated by instrumental tracks that blend pop, jazz and progressive elements. It was recorded in only six hours and the musicianship is exceptional throughout, winning the band a Swedish Grammis award for best group.
Made in Sweden - The Best of...
(Grand Prix GP-9997 Swe-71 EX 275:-)

Made In Sweden were probably the first exponents of progressive rock in Sweden, showcasing the jazzy guitar style of George Wadenius (sometimes reminiscent of Alvin Lee in his jazzier moments, although the actual influence was Wes Montgomery).

Original Swedish pressing.
Ola & Janglers - Patterns
(Gazell GMG-1204 Swe-66 VG+ 275:-)

Ola & Janglers were a garage rock and beat group from Sollentuna, Sweden, founded in 1962 by Ola Håkansson (vocals), Christer Idering (guitar) - replaced by Claes "Clabbe" af Geijerstam, Johannes Olsson (organ), Åke Eldsäter (bass) and Leif Johansson (drums). The group's 1969 hit "Let's Dance", a cover of the Chris Montez song, reached #92 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Ola went on to form Secret Service and had a succesfull career all over the World.

"Patterns" was their third album.
Saga - Saga
(Sonet SLP-2550 Swe-78 VG+ 400:-)

After Christer Stålbrandt had disbanded November, he started Saga in 1973. Their eponymous album is more progressive than November's recordings and also features cello and saxophone - played by Björn Isfält (Xtra) and Christer Eklund (Grapes Of Wrath) respectively.

The experimental tracks "Djävulens Läppar" and "Ensamma Rum" are especially exhilarating, while "Jakten tillbaka" and "Källardrottning" sound more or less like November circa 1972.

1978 Swedish re-issue. The sleeve is graded VG - the vinyl is VG+.
Samla Mammas Manna - Klossa Knapitalet
(Silence SRS-4627 Swe-74 VG+ 275:-)

SMM was formed in Uppsala in 1969 and fused jazz-rock and music associated with circus and theatre. Their unique sound has made them one of the most internationally acclaimed bands of the Swedish Progressive Movement.

"Klossa Knapitalet" (1974) contains the outstanding track "Liten Dialektik" approaching more serious progressive music (if this expression relates to SMM at all!). Another track, "Ramlösa Kvällar", was used as the name of a future Lars Hollmer project.
Sten & Stanley - I Lust och Nöd
(Decca LK-4698 Ger-65 VG+ 375:-)

Sten & Stanley bildades som popgrupp av Sten Nilsson, Ebbe Nilsson samt Stanley Granström i Karlskoga 1962. Under 1970-talet böt man stil och bandete utvecklades till ett dansband.

"I Lust och Nöd" från 1965 är bandets andra LP.
Storm - Stormvarning
(Harvest 4E062-35010 Swe-74 VG+ 275:-)

Famous poet Jacques Werup formed this progressive band in Malmö in 1973. His Swedish-language lyrics on Stormvarning have a socialist message with a poetic, yet violent, touch. The band strove to make the music radical, with most of the music written by Rolf Sersam. The standout cut, "Snart bryter stormen ut", was written by Werup and guitarist Mulle Holmqvist, who really shines here.

Original Swedish pressing, complete with picture innersleeve and lyric insert.
Sändh, Bengt - Skamgrepp
(Rabulist RALP-001 Swe-83 EX 250:-)

Bengt Sändh, född 17 februari 1938 i Borås, är en svensk trubadur, sångförfattare, författare och snusfabrikör. På 60 och 70-talen samarbetade han ofta med kollegan Finn Zetterholm.

"Skamgrepp" är en delad skiva med Ewert Ljusberg. Detta exemplar är signerat av Bengt Sändh!
Tages ‎– 1964-68!
(EMI 7C-138-35954/5 Swe-83 EX 300:-)

Tages formed in the early sixties in Gothenburg. They released a number of singles and LPs in their native Sweden to considerable success, making the Swedish Top Ten more than a dozen times. Though remembered as one of the finest non-English speaking bands of the 1960s, they failed to ever really break into the international markets.

This 2LP set collects material from their albums and singles.
Wikström, Rolf - Ljudklapp från Studio Decibel
(Decibel dB-7901 Swe-79 EX 275:-)

Blues guitarist and singer Rolf Wikström made his first vinyl appearance by guesting on Underground Failure's album. Wikström was a member of Slim's Blues Gang and Löpande Bandet and also played on sessions for the likes John Holm, Kjell Höglund, Ola Magnell, Risken Finns and Turid.

"Ljudklapp från studio Decibel - Digitalinspelade", was only pressed in 400 copies on RED vinyl and given away as Christmas gifts. It gained a proper release in 1980 as "Digitalis".
