Svenska Lod AB! – Horselmat. 1971 Sweden

Svenska Löd AB! - Hörselmat. 1971 private

CD reissue: 2011 Creole Stream (Japan)

LP reissue: 2011 Buben

Packaging details: One of the rarest albums from Sweden, if not THE rarest. Pressed in a micro quantity of 200 copies. Privately released album in an era when that kind of thing was unheard of, except in England perhaps. We've done some research on Creole Stream and we're considering them legit until someone says something to the contrary. Dusty Groove is the only US mail order house I've seen to carry them.

Notes: Svenska Löd AB! is primarily a jazz funk album with blues overtones, that features none other than Janne Schaffer on guitar. Great production, and some splendid guitar, trumpet, sax and organ work (especially the organ). Opening track is a killer horn rock piece ala primo Chicago. I can see this album being a huge hit with the DJ beatdigger hipster crowd.
