5 stars I saw Fläsket Brinner a few weeks ago at a small club in Gothenburg. The concert reminded me how good they are (and were) as an improvising unit. The box "Swedish Radio Broadcast" is were anyone not familiar with this combo should start. The first disc represent the first line- up with Sten Bergman and is packed with loose and glorious stuff.

The following two discs represent a line up consisting the core group of Dahlen, Bruun, Bergsten and Dahlbäck together with the jazz piano player Bobo Stensson and the famous Bo Hansson. A good part of the repertoire is taken from Hanssons solo albums, but played with much more guts. A fantastic combination of great composition skills and fine improvisations!

The last disc represent a later line up from the mid 70's, still with Dahlen, Bergsten and Bruun at the helm. This time the music is more structured and in some ways more symphonic (by Fläsket standards anyway). But do not get fooled, this is still highly intresting music and the beat from the ace drummer Bosse Skoglund is tight but at the same time loose!

Fläsket Brinner only released two LP:s during the 70's and this is why this box is so welcomed. If you like to invest your hard earned cash in some Swedish prog, let this one be your choice. You won't regret it!
