Wigwam - Fairyport 2 x CDs (expanded)

SKU Svart SRE 657CD
It’s now more than 50 years later and so it’s obviously time to celebrate what is my favorite album by one of the most important Scandanavian bands of the 70s!
What was originally the 1st 2 sides of the album are especially wonderful, organ-driven, song-oriented progressive, like the best of Caravan from the same period (1971). If you are a fan of this album, you need this hugely expanded version.

“To create the anniversary package we teamed up with Jukka Gustavson and went through a plethora of material. Gustavson hand-picked the best possible bonus materials.
What was originally side four of the original double album, the 17’ legendary jam, Rave-up For The Roadies, featuring Jukka Tolonen, was located in its original 36 minute form. The truncated 17-minute version was the closing number of Fairyport, but here is the full version.
“Most original multi-track reels to Fairyport are lost, but we salvaged a few demo session tapes plus some eight track reels of the album’s work-in-progress stage. Four tracks were chosen by Jukka Gustavson to be added here. It should be noted that the two album session tracks feature the original violin parts, which were left off the final product. All material was mixed from the original reels by Risto Hemmi at Finnvox.
This set also features a live CD. For this Gustavson picked material from a show the band played in Stockholm while working on the album’s demo sessions. There’s an earliest existing version of Losing Hold plus a 15-minute medley of several tracks. Also included is a 20-minute live set from the first ever Ruisrock in 1970, a couple of months before the band entered the studio. Here Wigwam perform three classics by The Band.”
