Prog Reviewer
5 stars KEBNEKAJSE's third album was released in 1975 and it was the second album where they played Swedish folk rock. This album follows the same musical direction as their previous album "KEBNEKAJSE" (1973) with fuzzy guitars, fiddles and magnificent songs, but there were some tracks that were different though. They were Kenny Håkansson's instrumental country tune "StJohn" and Ingemar Böcker's instrumental jazz-folk-rock ballad "Balladen om björnbär och nätmelon". This small but noticeable musical change were perhaps the turning point for KEBNEKAJSE. They released three more albums "Ljus från Afrika" (1976), "Elefanten" (1977) and "Vi drar vidare" (1978) before they went separate ways. None of these albums were bad but they never reached the same heights as Kebnekajse's first three albums.

And of course I have to mention the beautiful cover artwork by Kurt Netzler. Also listen to: Kenny Håkansson "Springlekar och gånglåtar" (1978).
