Kvartetten Som Sprangde - Kattvals vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

Fantastic album that I am thrilled to finally be able to own! If you are interested in the great, underground Swedish 1970s scene, you NEED this!

"First-ever vinyl reissue of one of the most sought-after and beautiful psych rock/progressive/pre-jazz rock instrumental albums ever recorded in Sweden. Originally released during the summer 1973 on the obscure Gump label. Powered by a C-3 organ, Ludwig kit and 50-watt Marshall head with a home-built cabinet, the skilled three-piece band (not a quartet, as the band name would have you believe) absolutely soars on this record, blasting away fantastically. The delicate use of the studio echo-chamber lends a magical, gossamer reverb to the whole album's sound. Includes a 4-page insert with lots of never-before-published photos and extensive liner notes by Reine Fiske (Dungen, The Amazing, etc.). Limited edition of 500 copies."

"Originally a quartet, their group name roughly translates into "The Spoilt Quartet"! Kattvals (1973) was one of the best albums released on (the great label) Gump. It's completely instrumental, with a tremendous interplay between electric guitar and Hammond organ. Somebody has referred to them as "the Swedish" Santana, but KSS were more related to their domestic colleagues Flasket Brinner, (early) Kebnekaise and Ablution, interweaving Nordic folk tunes into their powerful rock music."-Scented Gardens Of The Mind
