A totally groovy little record from Swedish singer Lill Lindfors – an artist who's got an equally great ear for sounds from France, Brazil, and even the American west coast – all of which she serves up here in her own unique style! Lill's music has always gotten attention from folks who are interested in the global spread of bossa during the 60s – but this wonderful album has even more to offer than just that, as Lindfors comes across with a depth that reminds us of Elis Regina on some of her more sophistcated late 60s sides, or maybe even some of the hipper French singers as things were really getting interesting once they moved past pop. Backings are by Marcus Osterdahls, who has a great way of moving between zippy sounds and more subtle ones – and Lills sings songs by Edu Lobo, Sonny Rollins, Jacques Brel, and The Beatles – plus some cool originals too. Titles include "Teresa", "Var Frihet", "Satt Lite Fart", "Den Forsta Sommaren", "Om Du Gar Din Vag", and "Har Ar Jag". CD

Some great funky grooves by this legendary British ensemble – featuring excellent keyboard work by Brian Auger, recorded during the period when he was really beginning to stretch out a bit, and hit a much more open-ended kind of sound. Julie Driscoll is still on vocals, singing in her raw sound, but Brian's Trinity group gets a fair number of nice instrumental moments on the set – which are greatly appreciated! Titles include the classic and sample laden "Light My Fire", "Czechoslovakia", "Finally Found You Out", "In Search Of The Sun", "Ellis Island", "I've Got Life", and "Save The Country".
