Another interesting platter is on the menu this evening. Music inspired by Lord of The Rings by Bo Hansson. 1972, Charisma (CAS 1059). Rune Carlsson on Drum Kit. Gannar Bergsten on Saxophone. Sten Bergman on flute, plus friends! Side A is a fairly pastoral mix of Mike Oldfield (including fuzz solo) and a sudden dose or two of Alice Coltrane style fusion, I reckon. Side two pending. It’s going to be wigout Mordor-prog I reckon. It starts like a 1800s Kyuss tribute. Then it turns into a Tangerine Dream/Mike Oldfield/Yes version of Earth Song! CM
