3 stars Regarded as one of the classics among swedish prog albums of the 70s, this one comes as a combined studio and live album with the first side being live and the second recorded in studio.

The live part consists only of two tracks, both instrumentals. Ganglaten is quite good and structured while Tyska finskan sounds more like a stretched out jam, and most probably they really made heavy use of improvisations. (Though my research is weak in this point.)

Almost completely instrumental is side B, recorded in studio. Gunnars dilemm and Bengans vals are both rather short affairs. On Bosses lat they collaborate with the internationally more successful BO HANSSON with a satisfying result. Two more short tracks follows, the guitar-heavy Rava and the organ dominated Uppsala gard. The last one being the only track with lyrics; the chanting of Uppsala gård. (Translates to something like Uppsala estate, Uppsala being a swedish town.) Last out is the jazzy Musik fran Liljevalchs. It's more in the vein of Swing than Fusion but still kind of Avant-Garde.

All in all an album dominated by raw guitars and rythm section but still with an appaerent use of organs, saxophones and flute. Not very produced but i believe Fläsket Brinner aimed for a live sound.

Frasse | 3/5 |
