Spectator Records - Foreningen til Livets beskyttelse
From the ancient rock-years in Denmark. Den Lille Prins (Le Petit Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupery 1943) and Foreningen Til Livets Beskyttelse (The Society To Protection Of Life) was situated in a community outside Aalborg in Jutland Denmark around 1970 - 1972. This is more or less the same story as Furekaaben from Copenhagen: People are living together in a community, some of them are musicians, and.. wow, you have a band! Just the girl Susanne Hamilton is from Copenhagen, and she was presentet to the group via the "producer" from ancient rec. label Spectator. No wonder that the two LPs Den Lille Prins and Foreningen Til Livets Beskyttelse sounds like something between Furekaaben and Skousen/Ingemann. That means rock based on folk. Instruments are: Acoustic and electric guitars, bass, drums, violin, saxophone, jewharp, mandolin and lotsa vocal. Lyrics are naive-but-with-a-big-warm-heart as they came those days, and this was not bad at all. The atmosphere is so groowy and friedley as you can think of. Those days were really something. These two LPs on one CD tells us something about why the early hippie-rock-days were so good. (shinybeast)
