Resan = LP = (LP)
At last a facsimile exact reissue of this most mysterious mega rare Swedish psych/prog gem from 1973 including a in-depth biography written by The Amazing / Dungen lead guitarist Reine Fiske plus previously unpublished photographs. Limited edition 500 copies. The colourful and turbulent late 1960's created a ground for a world-spanning counter-culture and musical phenomenon that swept all over Europe. In Sweden and in Stockholm specifically, the sign of those times gave rise to diverse politics, anarchistic and playful happenings that all intertwined eventually giving birth to a rather small but highly prolific and unique musical scene. Resan (The Trip) was surprisingly released on the Swedish CBS subsidiary label Epic in 1973 and is the rarest of all the major-label releases within the Swedish psychedelic / progressive era. It sometimes seen as continuation of the legendary Life album as, it features all the former Life band members. The Resan (The Trip) crew all lived together in a hippie commune outside of Stockholm and the album represents a unique and almost hidden part of the most "heady" (cerebrally stoned and turned on) Stockholm psychedelic-rock-history. The uniqueness and rarity of Resan (The Trip) is in its blissful but at times dark atmosphere. Strong composition with full electric band instrumentation including some stellar electric acid fuzz guitars and spaced out flutes etc...pretty much everything you could wish for in a recording like this and on top of that great production values. The albums rather splintered musical palette is also something of a perfect but peculiar mix of preaching hippie-naivety rooted in the psychedelic late 1960´s, though clearly coming of age in the slightly darker 1970´s.
