5 stars It would be appropriate to compare this album to legendary jazz pianist Jan Johansson's "Jazz paa svenska"(Jazz in Swedish) album. This is the rock equivalent - swedish folk music interpreted like no- one has ever heard it before or since, by superb musicians including guitar geniuses Kenny Hakansson and Ingemar Boecker, bass guitar duo Thomas Netzler & Goran Lagerberg, fiddlers Pelle Lindstrom & Mats Glenngard plus drummer/percussionists Gunnar Andersson & Hassan Bah (reportedly, and probably,drummer Pelle Ekman was absent during these recordings) and singer Turid Lundquist. This is not only the best Kebnekajse album, this is the best swedish album of the 1970s. According to Kenny, the recordings do not do justice to Kebnekajse's complex live sound. That may be so. This is what we do have. And this music is truly amazing. My favourite instrumental album of all time, and a cornerstone of scandinavian progressive music.
