Arbete Och Fritid

From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

2 stars This music is interesting to listen to but I don't think it's really good music. Some musicians here are very talanted but I don't think they did their best. I am proud of all good progressive music we made in Sweden in the seventies but I think the best was the political progressive music (that is not listed here).

Arbete och fritids secord record "Andra" (second) from 1971 is something different. They took inspiration from jazz, swedish, finnish, greek and balkan folk music and mixed that in some form of early world music. The result is not epic but absolutely something I recommend you to try. The record pearl is "Två grekiska låtar" - there they really caught som wonderful music, melodies and fantastic instrumentation (flute and saxophone). "Långdans efter Hjort-Anders" is a nice little song. I think they as swedes should have worked more with swedish folk music. Otherwise this record is very experimentel but not very much above that. The best on this record is Roland Keijser and Kjell Westling work with the woodwind instruments, but as I mensioned, they could've done something better of it.
