Atlantic Ocean - Tranquillity Bay. 1970 Sweden

Atlantic Ocean are a Swedish group whose sole album was released only in Finland. A mixture of UK styled pop psych and one long progressive instrumental journey that makes up all of Side 2. Not a bad album at all, and ahead of its time. The side long track has been included in a Love compilation (original label), which probably nullifies the need for Tranquillity Bay to be reissued on CD separately - presuming that's what drives the interest in this album (as it does for me).

Personal collection
LP: 1970 Love (Finland)

The LP is housed in a wonderful cover that opens in the middle similar to the first Ash Ra Tempel. The photos inside clearly have a leftist political bent, which was the norm in Sweden back then. Also comes with a cool lyric booklet.

Last listen: 2003
