2 stars This single from the vaults of Love Records followed the debut album, and unlike the first single from 1973, this is instrumental and more or less in the album's Fusion style. At this point the group was actually just a duo of the very gifted Tegelman brothers. They also played in another Kuopio-based band, PETRI & PETTERSSON BRASS (which was no prog, more like entertainment vocal music, oriented to Finnish-language covers of American & British pop songs).

'Ketto' is a serene track featuring basically just synths and piano, rather similar as some minor, instrumental CAMEL tracks on albums such as Nude and Single Factor. Beautifully airy, but it lacks the recognizingly Finnish (and forestial, ha ha) Fusion spirit of the eponymous album.

'Tekee meisseliä' (that's an outdated idiom meaning "to feel good [e.g. sexually]") is a funky, airy and lighthearted jazz-rock piece. Nice but quite forgettable. Also these tracks are featured on "Love Proge 2". 2½ stars rounded down for rather mimimal originality.
