Fläsket Brinner — Fläsket Brinner
(Silence SRS 4606, 1971, LP)

by Peter Thelen, Published 1999-11-01

Fläsket Brinner Cover art

This Swedish instrumental five-piece features organ, sax, drums, bass and guitar, and delivers a solid jam based groove with a slight jazz-rock influence, all in a live setting. The bottom end is beefy and the overall effect is pretty intense, especially on the opening side which starts out with “Gånglåten,” a six minute build-up that leads into the fourteen minute all-out jam “Tysta Finskan.” It’s also worth noting that Bo Hansson (Lord of the Rings, etc.) guests on organ. The six tracks that make up the original second side are a bit more composed and structured. Overall, this is an excellent album and a clean vinyl transfer as well.
