Hemmingson, Merit - Queen of Swedish Hammond Folk Groove (Mega Blowout Sale)

I didn't know Merit's work before hearing this (excellent) sampler of her 70's work, but I assume she was somewhat popular in her time. Now, having heard it, she combines the progressive rock stylings of the period with Swedish folk influences, a jazzy vibe and more for a fun collection that is another oldie that's sure to be discovered and sampled by some savvy d.j.

"Finally a collection that shows the legacy of the real Hammond Queen of Sweden. The CD is housed in a beautiful slipcase and the booklet is filled with tons of stories, pictures and anecdotes. Not only music from the 1970s are included as one brand new song has been recorded by Dag Lundquist (Trettioåriga Kriget) including Jojje Wadenius on electric bass, Fredrik and Reine Fiske (from Dungen) does some valuable playing as well.
The music is beat-oriented Hammond grooves with nice wordless vocals mixed up with slow, melancholy folky organ jazz."
