Description:

Berits Halsband was one of Sweden's greatest unsung progressive jazz rock units. Formed in Stockholm in 1974, their sole self-titled album was released in 1975 on the Forsaljud label and featured as much as 14 members, including a trumpets and flute horn section. The album included four lengthy instrumental steamy upbeat fusion pieces in a slightly folk-tinged jazz-rock vein; add to it a Canterbury-centric airiness and a rhodes’ based, post “Bitches Brew” intensity and what you get is one of the best mid-70s psychedelic-jazz rock albums you never heard of… Well, except the few ones, who kept the “collectors’ flame” on, with original copies nowadays fetching few hundreds of euros. 40 years later Greece’s Sound Effect Records, in collaboration with Musicbazz Productions presents the first ever reissue of this seminal ‘70s rarity on both vinyl and CD. Taken from the original master tapes, the reissue comes with new liner notes, photos and even a poster, on the vinyl issue only, all approved from and taken care by the band and the original label. 160 copies’ issue on black, 100 on colour vinyl and 100 on colour vinyl including CD, while the CD issue is limited to 350 copies and comes in a fantastic, custom made fold open “disc-folio” edition, with a 16-page booklet full of info and rare photos.
