4 stars Lars Hollmer and Eino Haapala formed VON ZAMLA in 1981 as an offspring from the legendary 70's Swedish progressive band SAMLA MAMMAS MANNA. VON ZAMLA took part in the R.I.O. (Rock in opposition) movement and released two albums: "Zamlaranamma" (1981) and "No Make Up!" (1983). Other band who also were in the R.I.O. movement were ART BEARS, ETRON LE FOU, UNIVERS ZERO and STORMY SIX etc. - This CD contains recordings from two live concerts in Germany during VON ZAMLA's Spring 1983 European tour. As I knew about VON ZAMLA before my expectations were very high when I pressed play on my CD player. I wasn't disappointed when VON ZAMLA's well-recognised music came out of the speakers. The production is very good especially for being live recordings. "1983" features songs from both "Zamlaranamma" (1981) and "No Make Up!" (1983) together with some songs that has never been released on any album before. The cover artwork "Halvtid" is made by Tage sn who also did the art work for SAMLA MAMMAS MANNA's albums "Mltid" (1973), "Klossa Knapitatet" (1974), "Schlagerns mystik" (1978) and "Kaka" (1999). - Fans of SAMLA MAMMAS MANNA / VON ZAMLA have had very much to enjoy this year, as SAMLA MAMMAS MANNA has released a new album this year called "Kaka" on the Swedish label Amigo. Both these releases are indispensable stuff. Highly recommended!
