Finally my Danish fellow countrymen ACHE, get the attention they deserve! Originally released in 1970 on Philips, this early prog piece from Denmark gets the royal treatment from the ever excellent Esoteric Recordings, re-mastering and fully re-stored booklet! This minor master piece, was written as rock ballet sound track (first ever) and a brilliant one as such, if you ask this old proghead!? There are a little trivia about this outing: Producer Johnny Reimar (then and today in Denmark known for his radio friendly music for those into James Last and Max Bygraves etc. etc.) how could, even would he produce this music (he did not have the faintest idea, let alone liked this kind of music!!) Anyhow here it is in shining form and re-mastered!! Seen as a ballet soundtrack it has all the trimmings, dramatic sequences, beautiful themes and original ideas from composers and Ache members Mellin and Olafsson. With the Hammond organ to the fore, this four piece prog band were way ahead in Danish music culture. Some have mentioned resemblance to Nice or even ELP, I think that is not the case! Even though Ache could have heard Nice, since their "Thoughts of Everlist Davjack" were released in 1968! I have had this vinyl album way back and I loved it, probably wore it out, but anyway I loved it and still do! Even though I think the superb guitars of Finn Olafsson are a bit wooly in the overall sound, this is a fine release, re-release and the music excellent! Actually this music holds up today!! Check it out!!
