Burnin' Red Ivanhoe biography
Burnin' Red Ivanhoe was formed back in 1967, and that makes them one of the first scandinavian prog bands. Their style was quite original from the start, blending jazz-rock with R&B, blues, psychedelia etc.. their debut from 1969 (double album) "M 144" sounds somewhat like THE WHO with jazz influences. Most of Burnin' Red Ivanhoe's albums have that certain scandinavian touch to it, similar to early 70's prog groups such as WIGWAM, CULPEPER'S ORCHARD and TASAVALLAN PRESIDENTTI. In 1971, the band released the album "WWW", which is probably a good place to start (for proggers), as it contains some of their most progressive and interesting work. The self-titled album they released in 1970 (another gem!), also contains the track "Secret Oyster Service", and quite soon after that, a new, even more jazz-orientated group was formed, called SECRET OYSTER. Burnin' Red Ivanhoe was disbanded in 1972 (although they released one more album in 1974), and as a result, most members moved over to SECRET OYSTER. Burnin' Red Ivanhoe is recommended for fans of early scandinavian prog rock.

3 stars I've enjoyed each of BURNIN RED IVANHOE's first three albums fairly equally. I'll be the first to admit that when some of these guys went off to form SECRET OYSTER it was the right move. I'm just a huge fan of that band.

"Second Floor, Croydon" is laid back with vocals. It does kick in before 1 1/2 minutes. Flute before 4 minutes. Drums and organ lead after 7 minutes. I much prefer the second half of this song. "W.W.W." opens with not much going on until we get some haunting sounds that come and go after 1 1/2 minutes. The organ and drums start to come and go as well with no real melody. Interesting tune to say the least. "Avez-Vous Kaskelainen ?" starts to build with drums and organ. Great sound after 1 1/2 minutes.

"Kaske-Vous Karsemose" is my favourite track. Again the drums and organ lead. Sax 3 minutes in. The drumming is excellent. Two incredible songs in a row. "All About All" opens with strummed guitar and drums. This is catchy with vocals. Silly lyrics and horns too. A fun tune. "Oblong Serenade" is another song that can't be taken too seriously with the horns and theatrical vocals. I like the guitar late. "Cucumber- Porcupine" has this catchy beat with horns. Vocals before 2 minutes.

Of their first three albums this might be my favourite, but they're all good. 3.5 stars.

3 stars For me BURNIN RED IVANHOE's second album is on a par with the debut. This one doesn't reach the highs that it's predecesor did but it's more consistant and overall a little more enjoyable for me. I like the way they've stretched these songs out too, they're much longer than what we saw on the debut.

"Across The Windowsill" is a good opener with the focus on the strong vocals. This one's catchy and I like the tasteful guitar at 1 1/2 minutes that goes on and on as organ, bass and drums support. Vocals return around 3 1/2 minutes, sax a minute later. "Canaltrip" is a jazzy, trippy tune with mostly sax and drums throughout. "Rotating Irons" is a bluesy track with harmonica.

"Gong-Gong,The Elephant Song" has lots of horns and cymbals until it kicks in before a minute. I like the beat here. It settles after 3 minutes then kicks back in quickly. "Near The Sea" is a laid back tune with guitar and light drums early as vocals join in. Flute after 2 1/2 minutes. "Secret Oyster Service" is the almost 10 minute closing track. Not much going on here,some dissonance around 3 minutes then it kicks in before 5 minutes.

This is a band I enjoy, but as yet I really haven't been bowled over by them yet. 3.5 stars.

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

3 stars I'm always surprised when a band's debut album is a double, surprised first of all because the record company usually would frown upon it, and second would a new band have enough good material to fill the 90 minutes. In BURNIN RED IVANHOE's case they had been playing together for 2 years before they recorded this album, so it's not surprising that these talented Danes had lots of material.This was released in 1969 and is an interesting blend of Jazz / Blues and Rock. Lots of horns, organ, guitar, bass and drums, but also some violin, flute and vibes. I wish there was more guitar and organ though.

"Ivanhoe I Brondbyerne" is a good opener with the forceful vocals and drums while the organ plays along. I really like the organ in this one and the mellower sections. Flute before 2 minutes. "Ridder Red" opens and closes with horns but the rest is fairly laid back and catchy with outbursts of guitar. The vocals are almost spoken. The drums come to the fore after 2 1/2 minutes. "Saxophonepiece 1" is uptempo with sax playing over top. "Marsfesten" has these soft vocals with a mellow soundscape which are contrasted with the fuller more passionate passages. "Antique Pepperment" has this catchy beat with horns. Guitar after 2 minutes. Vocal melodies a minute later. "Indre Landskab" also has a catchy beat with what sounds like harmonica.Vocals join in. "Jiizlou" opens with horns and drums. Guitar 1 1/2 minutes in. "Kaj" and the next three tracks are the best stretch of music for me. Raw guitar opens this one before drums, bass, organ and vocals join in. I like the sound here a lot. Horns 1 1/2 minutes in. "Tingel-Tangelmanden" is slower paced with the focus on the vocals early. I like the guitar that goes on and on as the drums pound from 1 1/2 minutes to 4 1/2 minutes.

"Laeg Dig Kun Ned" has a good rhythm and they have two vocalists singing different lyrics at the same time. It works ! "Saxophonepiece 2" has a Rio flavour with the dissonant horns. "Medarjus" opens with solemn horns. A change after a minute as drums take over. Bass joins in,guitar and horns follow. Vocals after 2 minutes. It ends as it began. "Purple Hearts" reminds me of Syd Barrett. A fun song with lots of organ. A nice prolonged instrumental section to end it as well. "Larsen" is laid back with reserved vocals and floating organ. "Oylzi" is taken over by the drumming fairly quickly. Violin comes in then horns. A drums solo after 3 minutes. "Ivanhoe In The Woods" opens sounding like "Satisfaction" by the STONES. Lots of horns. "Ida Verlaine" is mournful to open. It kicks in with guitar before 1 1/2 minutes. "Sensitive Plant" opens with organ and drums as vocals join in. It's ok. "Inside" is experimental with sounds coming and going. "Ksilioy" is the 10 1/2 minute closer. It's uptempo with vocals right away. A good rhythm as vocals come and go. They jam for a long period of time. I like it.

Very much a mixed bag as most double albums tend to be for me. So much to like here though. I'm looking forward to hearing the more Jazzy followup. 3.5 stars.

Lack Of Light
Burnin' Red Ivanhoe Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by UMUR
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

2 stars Lack of Light is the seventh and at the time that Iīm writing this review the last studio album from Danish progressive jazz/ rock act Burninī Red Ivanhoe. Burninī Red Ivanhoe are mostly known for their first three progressive jazz/ rock albums from the late sixties and the early seventies. The rest of their discography is not as significant or important in the history of progressive rock and that includes Lack of Light. Itīs been eighteen years between their last album called Shorts which was released in 1980, and itīs obvious that Lack of Light is from the nineties as it has a very different sound compared to Shorts. I found Shorts to be a terrible disappointment and overall a very weak album, so I wasnīt expecting much from Lack of Light.

The music hasnīt got much to do with the progressive jazz/ rock that made Burninī Red Ivanhoe such an exciting band in the beginning of their career. Thereīs a definite modern nineties pop/ rock touch to the sound and the songs are generally very commercial and not the least progressive IMO. I think Karma Cowboy ( with lyrics by the famous and sadly deceased Danish poet and author Dan Túrell) and the instrumental Jamminī My Animal with the very distinct didjeridu, are partially enjoyable while I canīt really find much joy in the rest of the tracks.

The musicianship is excellent as usual but the music is not as challenging or focused on instruemental sections as was the case on the first albums from the band.

The production is professional but not really to my liking.

I canīt say that Iīm very excited about this album and my rating lies somewhere between 1 and 2 stars. There are a few enjoyable momemts here and there so Iīll stretch and give Lack of Light 2 stars. Lack of Light is just a notch better than Shorts but overall itīs not very recommendable.

Shorts
Burnin' Red Ivanhoe Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by UMUR
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

1 stars Shorts is the sixth studio album from Danish act Burninī Red Ivanhoe. I havenīt heard their fifth effort from 1974 called Right On, but Iīm sure that Shorts is in a very different style because this album truly belongs in the eighties.

I donīt know if the original LP version only had ten songs as it is stated here on PA but the CD version that I have is a double CD. The first CD contains the same ten songs that were on the LP version while the second CD contains the same songs but now with English sung lyrics. The first CD has Danish sung lyrics.

The music is far from the experimental Jazz/ Rock style Burninī Red Ivanhoe is generally known for and Iīm sure that fans of the first three and most famous albums would cringe with embarrasment if they heard Shorts because this is bad eighties AOR if Iīm being nice and really bad AOR if Iīm not. You can still hear Karsten Vogelīs saxophone playing here and there but itīs about the only thing that links this album to Burninī Red Ivanhoe of the seventies. What a shame. This is such a cheesy album full of simple pop tunes with trivial arranged instrumentation.

The musicianship is good, but itīs no surprise if youīve heard their albums from the seventies.

The production is a horror of an eighties production. Just listen to that terrible drum sound.

This is a terrible disappointment for me and even though I read on the inner sleeve to Burninī Red Ivanhoeīs debut album M144 that the eighties werenīt very good for the band, I imagined that their excellent music just wasnīt inn at the time, but sadly itīs the other way around. The music was simply too bad to be enjoyed by anyone at the time. There is literally nothing I enjoy on this album and even though the musicianship is good I canīt give this album more than 1 star. BIG disappointment. I can highly recommend that you stay away from this one and purchase one of the first three albums from the band instead.

6 Elefantskovcikadeviser
Burnin' Red Ivanhoe Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by UMUR
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars 6 Elefantskovcikadeviser is the fourth studio album from Danish progressive jazz/ rock act Burninī Red Ivanhoe. Or rather itīs a collaboration between Burninī Red Ivanhoe and Danish folk singer Povl Dissing. Poul Dissing was and still is one of the most prolific musicians on the Danish music scene. Ask any Dane and they will know who Povl Dissing is. His most famous work is called Svantes Viser and itīs an album he did in collaboration with prolific Danish poet and author Benny Andersen.

Burninī Red Ivanhoeīs normal progressive jazz/ rock approach has been left in the background on 6 Elefantskovcikadeviser which is basically a folk rock album with Danish sung lyrics. Burninī Red Ivanhoe is known for their elaborate intrumental sections, but on this album the instrumentation is a bit more stripped down.

The album consists of nine tracks, but there are really only six real songs on the album as Introduction sigvaldi, Kometen v sigvaldi and Introduction til Medardus are basically only some live talking. Wallifanten is the first real song and itīs great. One of the best songs on the album. Itīs also the first song where weīre introduced to Povl Dissingīs characteristic voice. Narrevise is the next song. Again itīs a great folky track but itīs the next song Snehvidekys ( Snowwhite Kiss) which takes the price as the best song on the album for me. It īs an extremely beautiful and emotionally sung love song that really moves me. Ta fri ta fri us another great bluesy folk rock song and the same can be said about Et Samfund which is the only song on the album where Povl Dissing doesnīt sing. Ole Fick handles the vocals on this song as he usually does on Burninī Red Ivanhoeīs albums. Tingel-Tangelmanden is a reworking of the original track from the debut and it has extensive soloing during itīs 10:27 minutes and some great vocals from Povl Dissing. This is probably the song that will be most enjoyable for fans of the first three classic albums from the band ( M144, Burninī Red Ivanhoe and W.W.W.).

The musicianship is as always excellent even though this music is much more basic than the more challenging playing which takes place on the first three albums from the band. Povl Dissing will be an aquired taste, first of all because he sings in Danish but also because of his distinct vocal style which will probably scare some people away( he is very famous in Denmark because of his vocal style and his poetic lyrics). Despite of the lineup info here on PA, the sleeve notes on the original album says that itīs the same lineup who recorded W.W.W. who also recorded this album just with the addition of Povl Dissing on the latter.

The production is excellent. Nothing to complain about there.

6 Elefantskovcikadeviser is not an album that will satisfy many visitors here on PA and it has something to do with knowing the Danish language because half of the enjoyment here IMO is the way Povl Dissing sings the poetic lyrics and that part unfortunately gets lots in translation. But for people who like folk rock with a bluesy touch this might be an enjoyable album anyway. I like the album so Iīll rate it 3 stars.

Burnin' Red Ivanhoe + W.W.W.
Burnin' Red Ivanhoe Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by UMUR
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars Burnin' Red Ivanhoe + W.W.W. is a boxset that contains the second and the third album from Danish progressive jazz/ rock act Burninī Red Ivanhoe. Burninī Red Ivanhoe is probably the most prolific Danish progressive rock bands and definitely one of the most internationally known. Heavily rooted in the Danish jazz scene of the sixties Burninī Red Ivanhoe began incorporating blues rock, psychadelic rock and progressive ideas into their music which gave them their unique sound. The music is comparable to bands like Colosseum and Audience.

Burninī Red Ivanhoe:

The selftitled second Studio Album from Danish act Burninī Red Ivanhoe was released in 1970. The debut album from 1969 called M144 is a really excellent album and one of the most important Danish progressive releases. Burninī Red Ivanhoe even enjoyed some success in both UK, Germany and the rest of the Scandinavian countries which was ( and still is) very rare for a Danish band.

The music is bluesy jazz/ rock very much in the vein of bands like Colosseum and Audience. On this second album there is a much more dominant experimental jazz/ rock touch to songs like Canaltrip and Secret Oyster Service compared to the style on the debut, while the blues influence is clearly heard on Rotating Irons and Across the Windowsill. Near the Sea is a mellow song. Gong-Gong, The Elephant Song is also in experimental jazz/ rock territory with dominant brass work. The main theme reminds me a bit about The Mothers of Invention ( King Kong). There is also a harmonica solo in that song.

The musicianship is excellent. Burninī Red Ivanhoe was and still is one of the most accomplished bands in Denmark. The two brass players Kim Menzer and Karsten Vogel dominate the music but the vocals from Ole Fick which this time is solely sung in English are also really good. Jess Stæhr on bass and Bo Thrige Andersen on drums also makes for a really tight and excellent rythm section.

The production is excellent. Organic, pleasant and well sounding.

M144 stands for me as one of the most groundbreaking and important progressive releases in Danish music history and thatīs pretty hard to compete with. Burninī Red Ivanhoe is a bit too much in experimental jazz/ rock territory for my taste. Not unlike Soft Machine really even though this album is much better than anything Soft Machine ever did after the first two albums. This is still a good album though and it deserves 3 stars IMO.

W.W.W.:

W.W.W. is the third studio album from Danish progressive jazz/ rock band Burninī Red Ivanhoe. Iīm a big fan of the debut album called M144 from the band while the selftitled second album went too far into jazz territory for my taste. Itīs still a good album though. With W.W.W. Burninī Red Ivanhoe returns to the more psychadelic leanings of the debut while still maintaining their jazzy edge.

The change in style compared to the predecessor is very obvious when listening to the first couple of songs on W.W.W. Karsten Vogel plays the organ instead of his characteristic sax on both the opener Second Floor, Croydon, the second song W.W.W. and the third song Avez-Vous Kaskelainen while Kim Menzer plays the flute rather than his usual sax. This change in intrumentation really gives those songs a different sound to the normally very sax dominated Burninī Red Ivanhoe weīre used to. The sax does return later on the album but never in the jazzy way itīs used on the predecessor. There are vocals on Second Floor, Croydon, All About All and Oblong Serenade while the rest of the songs are instrumental. My favorites here are Second Floor, Croydon and Oblong Serenade with itīs characteristic trombone theme. The only song I donīt enjoy much is the psychadelic organ dominated title track. Itīs way too long and really isnīt very interesting.

The musicianship is excellent. On W.W.W. we really get to hear every facette of Burninī Red Ivanhoeīs sound from jazz/ Rock to psychadelic rock to more progressive moments like the ending of Second Floor, Croydon. The interplay between these musicians is magical IMO.

The production is really good and pleasant. Very organic just like the sound on the first two albums.

W.W.W. is a really good album and even though itīs not as challenging as itīs predecessor or as groundbreaking as the debut from Burninī Red Ivanhoe itīs a pretty unique album from the band. Iīll rate W.W.W. 3 BIG stars.

Conclusion:

Both Burninī Red Ivanhoe and W.W.W. are very worthy purchases and therefore this boxset is a great opertunity to get both albums for one albums price. I rated both individual albums 3 stars but as the idea of putting them out together is really great Iīll give this boxset 4 stars. Both albums were BIG 3 star ratings anyway.

Karsten Vogel plays the organ instead of his characteristic sax on both the opener Second Floor, Croydon, the second song W.W.W. and the third song Avez-Vous Kaskelainen while Kim Menzer plays the flute rather than his usual sax. This change in intrumentation really gives those songs a different sound to the normally very sax dominated Burninī Red Ivanhoe weīre used to. The sax does return later on the album but never in the jazzy way itīs used on the predecessor. There are vocals on Second Floor, Croydon, All About All and Oblong Serenade while the rest of the songs are instrumental. My favorites here are Second Floor, Croydon and Oblong Serenade with itīs characteristic trombone theme. The only song I donīt enjoy much is the psychadelic organ dominated title track. Itīs way too long and really isnīt very interesting.

The musicianship is excellent. On W.W.W. we really get to hear every facette of Burninī Red Ivanhoeīs sound from jazz/ Rock to psychadelic rock to more progressive moments like the ending of Second Floor, Croydon. The interplay between these musicians is magical IMO.

The production is really good and pleasant. Very organic just like the sound on the first two albums.

W.W.W. is a really good album and even though itīs not as challenging as itīs predecessor or as groundbreaking as the debut from Burninī Red Ivanhoe itīs a pretty unique album from the band. Iīll rate W.W.W. 3 BIG stars.

3 stars The selftitled second Studio Album from Danish act Burninī Red Ivanhoe was released in 1970. The debut album from 1969 called M144 is a really excellent album and one of the most important Danish progressive releases. Burninī Red Ivanhoe even enjoyed some success in both UK, Germany and the rest of the Scandinavian countries which was ( and still is) very rare for a Danish band.

The music is bluesy jazz/ rock very much in the vein of bands like Colosseum and Audience. On this second album there is a much more dominant experimental jazz/ rock touch to songs like Canaltrip and Secret Oyster Service compared to the style on the debut, while the blues influence is clearly heard on Rotating Irons and Across the Windowsill. Near the Sea is a mellow song. Gong-Gong, The Elephant Song is also in experimental jazz/ rock territory with dominant brass work. The main theme reminds me a bit about The Mothers of Invention ( King Kong). There is also a harmonica solo in that song.

The musicianship is excellent. Burninī Red Ivanhoe was and still is one of the most accomplished bands in Denmark. The two brass players Kim Menzer and Karsten Vogel dominate the music but the vocals from Ole Fick which this time is solely sung in English are also really good. Jess Stæhr on bass and Bo Thrige Andersen on drums also makes for a really tight and excellent rythm section.

The production is excellent. Organic, pleasant and well sounding.

M144 stands for me as one of the most groundbreaking and important progressive releases in Danish music history and thatīs pretty hard to compete with. Burninī Red Ivanhoe is a bit too much in experimental jazz/ rock territory for my taste. Not unlike Soft Machine really even though this album is much better than anything Soft Machine ever did after the first two albums. This is still a good album though and it deserves 3 stars IMO.

4 stars M144 is the debut album from experimental Danish Jazz/ rock act Burninī Red Ivanhoe. Heavily rooted in the Danish jazz scene in the sixties Burninī Red Ivanhoe began to incorporate more rock influences into their music and soon had a good following in their native Denmark. M144 was released in 1969 and was one of the few Danish rock albums from that time with an international sound. The band enjoyed quite a success internationally especially in the UK where the album actually charted as one of the first foreign albums ever. Germany and the rest of Scandinavia were also markets for Burninī Red Ivanhoe.

M144 is a double album which was also something that was very unusual for Danish artists in 1969. The first LP has Danish sung lyrics while the second has English sung lyrics. About half of the songs are instrumental though. The lyrics are generally pretty fragmented and weird. Iīm not sure but Ridder Rød ( Red Knight) does sound like there are some socialist thoughts put into it ( which was a very common thing in Danish lyrics from this time). Kaj is a pretty hilarious song about the lonely guy named Kaj who is only interested in girls on pictures. He lives with his aunt who is very interested in him ( censorship bip bip).

The album is full of great bluesy jazz/ rock tunes, very much in the vein of bands like Colosseum and Audience. Lots of brass and catchy hooks. Songs like Antique Peppermint, Medardus ( with vocals that remind me of Magma) and Saxophonepiece 1 and 2 are all excellent mostly instrumental jazz/ rock songs. Songs like Ivanhoe i Brøndbyerne, Ridder Rød, Marsfesten, Kaj and Purple Hearts also showcase Burninī Red Ivanhoeīs high level of compositional and technical skill. Ksilioy ends the album and I must admit that itīs a bit too much for me with the repetitive midsection even though the musicianship is outstanding in this song.

The CD version is a double CD with six added extra songs where Why Don't You Trust is the most exciting one. Kaj is there again in a version recorded in 1997.

The musicianship is excellent and all involved are higly skilled musicians. Especially the brass playing is of an extremely high standard.

The production is excellent. Great organic mix.

What I enjoy so much about the album is that it never gets too jazzy. Itīs always more rock music than jazz ditto and thatīs how I like it. M144 is without a doubt one of the most groundbreaking releases in Danish music history and itīs a great progressive rock album as well. Itīs close to being a masterpiece but not quite and 4 stars is well deserved. Itīs a highly recommendable bluesy Jazz/ rock album. Maybe one of the best out there.
