One of coolest collections of spiritual music we've seen in a long time – a compilation of freewheeling jazzy psych, funk and rock from Norway in the 70s – Christian in inspiration and boundlessly grooving in mood and style! Without speaking the language, it's pretty wonderful how the peacefulness of mind and spirit comes through in the songs to us – and the musicianship and all around creativity is amazing. Jazzy, funk, psych and more – with horns, grooving organs, blazing guitars, thumping drums, snapping bass all the elements we love in those styles – and sweet lead and group vocals! 15 tracks on the vinyl version: "Kort Apell" by Joyful Singers, "Dyp Av Nade" and "Kom" by That's Why, "Salme 150" by KERYX, "Mennesket Og Lyset" by Crossing, "Gud Har Inga Pengar" by Heralds, "No Smoking" by Soli Deo", "Frelst" by Reflex and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
