I have four: Stockholm 1970, Stockhom 1972, jam with NoNeckBluesBand NYC 2003, and Malmo 2003. Does anyone know of any others?

BTW: I have posted two of these on indietorrents right now with plans to up the rest in weeks to come.

Gärdet 12.6.1970 is killer -- guess it's officially released? or something. hard to tell. whatever, it rocks.

It is officially released (Subliminal Sounds) and I was listening to it this morning!:)

Marco Damiani, Friday, 27 May 2011 16:05 (five years ago) Permalink

me too! high five! so awesome.

tylerw, Friday, 27 May 2011 16:06 (five years ago) Permalink

One of the twins particularly enjoyed the music and danced to their version of Satisfaction - or at least he tried to. Maoist psych rock for children!

Check Mors Mors for a totally killer 26 minute Sommerlaten.

Trip Maker, Friday, 27 May 2011 16:15 (five years ago) Permalink

Also officially released.

Trip Maker, Friday, 27 May 2011 16:15 (five years ago) Permalink

basically everything this band has recorded is golden, imo. what i reallllly should spend more time with is the Parson Sound material. listened to the box in its entirety maybe 3-5 times after i bought it, having not heard the CD in years. time for another sesh.

i really like their new album from a year or two ago! it's good!

I like two pre-Trad acts better, but yeah they are still great.

Fig On A Plate Cart (Alex in SF), Thursday, 7 July 2011 16:21 (five years ago) Permalink

what are those bands? i'm totally uninformed.

tylerw, Thursday, 7 July 2011 16:24 (five years ago) Permalink

There are actually three: Parsson Sound, Harvester and International Harvester.

Fig On A Plate Cart (Alex in SF), Thursday, 7 July 2011 16:25 (five years ago) Permalink

oh! i do know a bit of int'l harvester. will have to dig up some of those releases. on a big trad gras kick lately.

tylerw, Thursday, 7 July 2011 16:26 (five years ago) Permalink

Both int'l albums are great. The cd's have bonus tracks that are worth your while. Not sure if lp copies are available, anyway.

Trip Maker, Thursday, 7 July 2011 17:05 (five years ago) Permalink

Oh the second album is credited to just "Harvester," by the way.

Trip Maker, Thursday, 7 July 2011 17:08 (five years ago) Permalink

Harvester "Hemat" is a record I have been searching for for some time now! One of my most played CDs.

Can someone help me find something that is not this when I search for International Harvester?

whoa"i mourn you" is so good -- sounds like it's underwater, but it kinda reminds me of listening to unpracticed marching bands for some reason

I binged on them after this thread revive.
Gonna bring Parson Sound to the radio show tomorrow night.
Check that one out, for real. It's got a cool radio session medley of It's Only Love->I Mourn You->Sov Gott Rose Marie.
And two more hours of unbelievably great Swedish power drone psych wizardry.

That Swedish Prog Folk thread is totally not the only ILM thread I've started lol

fuck, awful news. thomas mera gartz, the drummer from pärson sound and träd, gräs och stenar has died, just a couple of days ago. apparently he fell ill and was rushed to the hospital but died the following day, just like that. RIP.

Oh, that's sad. RIP.

I just found this and it's really good -- long instrumental solo in the middle-end, as I had hoped. anyone heard his solo stuff? I never have (until today). kinda reminds me of bill fay?!

tylerw, Tuesday, 26 January 2016 18:52 (ten months ago) Permalink

that description makes no sense, refers both to 3xLP and 6xLP, refers to the unreleased one as a double so that would mean a 4LP set?!?!?

the 'major tom guy' (sleeve), Tuesday, 26 January 2016 18:59 (ten months ago) Permalink

yeahh
seems like it's
Djungelns Lag = 2LP
Mors, Mors = 2LP
Kom Tillsammans = 2LP
?
and then the CD version is just Djungelns Lag + Mors, Mors?
lamesville, I can't afford these vinyl box sets!

tylerw, Tuesday, 26 January 2016 19:03 (ten months ago) Permalink

Phil F. suggested that it means the vinyl set is the only way to get the unreleased stuff ON vinyl, whereas the CDs for each release will be sold separately. It is pretty damn strangely worded.

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 26 January 2016 19:03 (ten months ago) Permalink

hmm yeah maybe!

tylerw, Tuesday, 26 January 2016 19:07 (ten months ago) Permalink

Actually, I don't think the CDs will be individually packaged, either - I think it's just a 3CD set. I'm in, though. (I've emailed the label about getting an advance so I can pitch a review to The Wire, of course.)

the top man in the language department (誤訳侮辱), Tuesday, 26 January 2016 19:29 (ten months ago) Permalink

that's fine - if it's a 3CD set w/ everything for $20, it's a steal.

tylerw, Tuesday, 26 January 2016 19:34 (ten months ago) Permalink

Absolutely. And I'm as excited about the remastered albums as the new material - my copies of those are MP3s sourced from old vinyl.

Been making my way through the box for several days, off and on--so far (heard about 3/4), about an hour's worth really grabbed me, but the rest either starts well, then loses the momentum, or fades out too soon, or seems utterly predictable, in that jam band way, from any era--or just seems inconsequential, at least to non-specialist ears (that nevertheless have listened to lots and lots of jams, in my case). But I'll keep listening; it ain't painful (I've heard much, much worse).

Yeah, I was wondering about this - the publicist sent me the full digital package, but it would have been a 4CD set for sure if everything was available physically.

the top man in the language department (誤訳侮辱), Saturday, 9 April 2016 17:14 (seven months ago) Permalink

Yeah it's a little bummer that CD loses out on the 17 minute version of "The Last Time", but nearly four hours seems like plenty of music to me.

One bad call from barely losing to (Alex in SF), Saturday, 9 April 2016 17:34 (seven months ago) Permalink

does the LP set have split tracks (i.e spread over 2 sides) like the Parson Sound 3LP?

the 'major tom guy' (sleeve), Saturday, 9 April 2016 17:37 (seven months ago) Permalink

It does.

the 'major tom guy' (sleeve), Saturday, 9 April 2016 18:37 (seven months ago) Permalink

Did that extended Last Time already appear as bonus material on a previous version of Mors Mors? Cos I think I have at least one extended version of it. Not sure where my cd is though.

Stevolende, Saturday, 9 April 2016 18:47 (seven months ago) Permalink

i think the 3CD thing will be plenty of jammage for me.

scott seward, Saturday, 9 April 2016 19:08 (seven months ago) Permalink

apologies if this has been covered already but is the sound better on the CDs?

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Saturday, 9 April 2016 19:50 (seven months ago) Permalink

The remastering of the old albums definitely improves the sound where it's possible to improve it - however, some of the recordings are barely above bootleg quality, and always were, so you get what you were gonna get there.

the top man in the language department (誤訳侮辱), Saturday, 9 April 2016 19:59 (seven months ago) Permalink

True. Sound quality of the promo digital is very reasonable considering the sources. Music quality, like I said upthread: less could def be more. But it's good to be able to choose your own keepers and sell the originals (not xpost $80-worth good though; jeez)

dow, Saturday, 9 April 2016 21:53 (seven months ago) Permalink

i know totally sane people who absolutely WORSHIP these people. a lot of freaky musicians i know, for instance.

xpost Scott (but also applies to sound quality discussion) No doubt, and everybody should enjoy as much of it (and a lot of other things)as they can, for as long as they can. (PS: by "the originals," I meant purchases, not trying to do anything with the promo downloads)

this 3CD thing is packed with so many jams.

tylerw, Tuesday, 17 May 2016 20:02 (six months ago) Permalink

i know i already asked about the sound quality but

can someone who has heard these CDs tell me specifically if the drums are more audible?
i like to play along with this band sometimes and usually when i play with a recording, i can easily hear distinctions between what i'm playing and what is on the recording* but with their songs (and international harvester in partic) i can't. either i am the second coming of thomas 'mera' gartz (extremely unlikely) or the drums are barely audible

*first, i am not that good and second, sometimes i like to play a differently accented beat

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 17 May 2016 20:25 (six months ago) Permalink

i'm about 2/3 through and the drums are definitely audible. sound quality is better than i expected, really! seriously it is great -- definitely worth the $20.

tylerw, Tuesday, 17 May 2016 20:27 (six months ago) Permalink

yeah, the CDs sounded good to me. i'm glad they had the option. get a little bummed when there is no normal option and only some extra-deluxe thing.

scott seward, Tuesday, 17 May 2016 20:30 (six months ago) Permalink

ok thank you
sold!

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 17 May 2016 20:30 (six months ago) Permalink
