Title: Handgjort
Format: Double LP
Label: Psykofon
Country: Sweden
Price: $66.00
"A strange and, as the group name indicates, meditative handmade acoustic fusion of Indian raga music and Western folk rock. For comparison one can mention British hippie folk rock such as Dr. Strangely Strange,The Incredible String Band (and also) reminds us of Japans Maher Shalal Hash Baz." - Dan Backman, SVD. "Handgjort (trans. "Handmade") recorded a legendary album in 1970 released by Silence Records. All covers were hand-painted by the band members. The music is moody underground folk with Eastern influences. The album sold very poorly and is a serious collectors item today. The original band members were: Marcus Brandelius aka Greg Fitzpatrick (esraj and vocals), Guy Öhrström (acoustic guitar), Stig Arne Karlsson (sitar), and Theo Greyerz (tablas). After over three years of preparation, Handgjort is reissued, released as a coproduction from Silence and Psykofon records. This is an exclusive replica, with hand-painted covers by the band members once again! The original album was remastered from the master tapes without digitalization. The previously-unreleased bonus tracks were all recorded live at the festivals at Gärdet in 1970 and 1971. Strictly limited edition of 600 copies done with the full cooperation of the band. The deluxe vinyl version, released by Psykofon Records, includes the previously-unreleased live material on a bonus LP." - Psykofon. Very highly recommended!
