Hurdy Gurdy were founded in Denmark in 1967, although their one and only album was not recorded until 1971 and released in 1972. So it isn’t surprising that this period piece, minor hard rock classic contains heavy blues rock influences as well as strong whiffs of the psychedelic era. They were led by the great guitarist Claus Bohling, not too long later to join up in the great Danish fusion band Secret Oyster.

“This lone S/T album by the Danish band Hurdy Gurdy is a very good mix of heavy psych...

Despite the band's name, which conjures up images of something released on Delirium by a spacerock jam band, this is an excellently played, generally furious Swedish fusion trio of guitar, bass and drums performed by Fredrik Andersson, Pr Laurn and Bj...

"With its cathedral-like, richly resonant acoustics, the new Hypnotic Brass Ensemble album Book Of Sound is a brilliant expression of this interplanetary principle. The album is by turns urgent and contemplative, funky and reflective, varied in its textures; but entirely of one piece. Underpinned by concepts of earth's place in the cosmos, held in place by meditation, swirling with notions of history, science, theology, ancestry, there is a rich conceptual brew here. The album rings with what back in the...
