PS
I don't know if these other "Early Daze" is legit or proper record.

bio:
ST. HELENA was Norwegian band, formed in Hammerfest in 1971.
Members were: Ray BRISEID on bass, Willy BENDIKSEN on drums, Fezza ELLINGSEN on guitar and flute, vocalists Kjell ARE PLEYM (also on keyboards) and Rolf ANDERSEN (also on acoustic guitar).

They recorded couple of tracks in 1974, which were later released as "Hello Friend" EP in 1991.
These recordings show band as interesting entity with varied, rich arranged compositions and characteristic style.

ST. HELENA's "Hello Friend" can be compared to other Scandinavian bands like AUNT MARY, HOST, JUNIPHER GREEN, HADES and is recommended for people looking for underground complex classic prog gems - not only from the North.

I think that's it could start with Eclectic.

Norwegian band with archival half of an album - tracks recorded in 1974, released in 1991.
Music is quite complex and often guitar oriented (I hear also uncredited flute), similar to bands like Junipher Green, Host and Deja Vu (but not as epic, but still more complex than Wishbone Ash).

PS.
It's case like with another Norwegian band Hades - with something about 20 min of music - released after years in 1992.



Hello Friend 1991

full album:
or playlist (a bit better quality?):

1. Hello Friend (5:13)
2. Concert No. 2 (5:40)
3. Song Is Sung / Lama And The Boy / Magic Garden (8:40)

Ray Briseid / bass
Willy Bendiksen / drums
Fezza Ellingsen / guitar
Kjell Are Pleym / keyboards, vocals
Rolf Andersen / acoustic guitar, vocals
