Secret Oyster - Vidunderlige Kaeling aka Astarte (expanded)

SKU LE 1043
The catalog of the Danish jazz/rock band Secret Oyster have long been one of the most sought-after titles for release on CD; I can't tell you the number of times that people have requested one or another of their titles from us. Despite having been very popular in their day, none of the band's four albums have ever appeared on a legitimate CD. Until now.

"Under exclusive world-wide license from Sony Denmark, The Laser's Edge is pleased to re-launch their long heralded reissue series with the first of six titles from the legendary Danish jazz-rock ensemble Secret Oyster. Considered a "supergroup" by the Danish rock press, Secret Oyster originally formed in 1973. Notable members include Karsten Vogel (sax) and Jess Staehr (bass) from Burnin' Red Ivanhoe, Kenneth Knudsen (keyboards) and Ole Streenberg (drums) from Coronarias Dans, and guitarist Claus Bohling of Hurdy Gurdy. In 1975 Secret Oyster was commissioned by noted Danish choreographer Flemming Flindt to create the music for "Vidunderlige Kaelling," the provocative ballet based on the erotic poetry of Jens August Schade. With contributions from ECM recording artist Palle Mikkelborg and Kasper Winding, the recording sessions resulted in their 3rd album, also released the following year in the USA as "Astarte." Thirty years later it is considered a jazz rock classic that will appeal to fans of Soft Machine, Mahavishnu Orchestra, and Return To Forever. With the co-operation of the band, "Vidunderlige Kaelling" features 3 previously unreleased bonus tracks and new liner notes from Karsten Vogel." [Laser's Edge]
