This record is a â€śone night standâ€ť (sic!) with all its thrills and spills as it always is during â€¨a live gig. We played three sets at the Glenn Miller CafĂ© in Stockholm and you are going toâ€¨ hear nine of the twelve tunes we played â€“ and in the same order. It was a tuesday so before the third set some people had to leave â€śbecause there is a day tomorrowâ€ť - the remaining, as you can hear, still enthusiastic, though...â€¨When mixing I tried to do as little as possible, just added a little reverb and a slight â€¨compression â€“ the faders were mostly left untouched. â€¨So, my hope is that this record will give you the feel of being there with us in the audience.
â€śSagostundenâ€ť means â€śTime for fairy talesâ€ť and was a series (over 100!) of shows for children on Swedish Television, often with Astrid Lindgren as the story-teller. â€¨â€śFem myror-vinjettâ€ť is the signature-tune for another very popular and pedagogic TV-series for children of 58 programs (not unlike Sesame Street) called â€śFive ants are more than four elephantsâ€ť.Â â€śEnsamma Balladenâ€ť means â€śThe Lonely Balladâ€ť and Mats' â€śOstĂ¶gaâ€ť would be â€śCheese-eyeâ€ť in English, which has something to do with his disliking of cheese. Your title interpretation of Bengt Berger's "Flabby Dick" is up to your imagination.
Enjoy! /Â Bengt ErnrydÂ
