Many people in the forum perhaps know Rikard Sj÷blom, either as a keyboardist, guitar player and singer in Beardfish; as the multi-purpose guy behind Gungfly or from many other projects.

Looking for Beardfish videos in Youtube, I stumbled upon what seemed to be Rikard's own YouTube channel , where there's a whole album uploaded under his name, and the live version of it.

The album's title is Cyklonmannen, is a musical interpretation of the book of the same name written by Sture Dahlstr÷m, and released in 2003.

In Cyklonmannen's studio version Rikard plays every instrument but the winds (guest artists are in charge of them) and in the live version he plays the keyboards, and is joined by an ensemble named Den Gyllene Orkestern (The Golden Orchestra). Both versions come in the same CD (or used to come, the CD appears to be out of print).

The question here is, is Rikard worth adding as a separate artist or is it better to add this album (which is IMO undeniably top-notch instrumental prog) to another solo page, such as Gungfly?

Anyway, here's the full album for you to enjoy:

The playlist, starting with Cyklonmannen's studio version:

And the playlist, starting in the live version (by far much better IMO):

Very nice stuff. Understandably, this reminds me uncannily of Beardfish, and because of that, I think this would fit quite well in eclectic as well. I'll alert the team.

Coincidentally, I just purchased this from eMusic this morning.   I had no idea that it had been suggested.
