3 stars Lovers of jazz rock and fusion, this is the perfect record for you!

Berits halsband was a Sweidsh ensemble which only did one studio record back in the year 1975. Before listening to this I was a little skeptical (much beacuse of that fusion isn't my favourite genre) but after listening I must admit it is hard to give this a low rating. The musicians impress me with a lot of talent and musically visions. They are so coherent and progressive in everything they do. It feels they were doing something great of a big nothing. This doesn't feels like unknown music at all. I think every fan of jazz and fusion should listen to this. But with all their talent, I think it was a pity they didn't do more organized music. So why I give this three and not five stars, is that I have my personal taste, and that music allways is subjective.

The records best track is "Elhamokk" with a toach of the Orient and heavy rock. The amazing melody line is played on flute(Mats Anton Karis). The giant on this record: "Flaxöras hemliga återkomst" contains a lot of great material. It is driven by the blowers: Thomas Brandt(saxophone), Tommy Adolfsson(trumpet) and Bengt Ekevärn(trumpet). Also the guitar(Olof Söderberg) is important and great on this record. We also have a bass player (Göran Fors), a drummer(Michael Lindqvist), a violin and pianist(Jonas Lindgren) and a pianist(Per Lejring).

All the record is sounds from the seventies and it certainly shows one side of rock music that is important. I hesitated about giving such a good record just three stars, but it is still a matter of taste. Recommended for jazz lovers, worthwhile listening for others!

Somebody has written the wronng names on the songs. The long song is "Flaxöras hemliga återkomst" and not "Halvvägs Hildur" which is the last song.
