Forgotten Jewel!!!
Rag I Ryggen-S/T (sweden-superb heavy prog 1975)

Scusate ma io amo questo disco! Un mix esplosivo tra Deep Purple ed Uriah Heep!con un tocco di prog che non guasta!sono veramente innamorato!é un gruppo sWedese(!)e ci sono canzoni in lingua (!!!)e in inglese...beh a mio modo di vederesono molto più belle le canzoni in svedese!Come intuirete le maggior parte delle canzoni hanno un organo pulsante che rende la miscela esplosiva!personalmente è bastato un ascolto per innamoramene, spero altrettanto per voi!Come altre volte, nessuna song da consigliare...forse la prima traccia "Det Kan Val Inte Pole Farligt "(non è colpa mia se sono prolissi!) la 3 ("Jan Banan") e la spettacolare ultima "Sanningsserum".Provare per credere! Sto cercando gruppi simili a questi, se avete consigli sono in ascolto!

review: (plz leave comments for this album!)

Rag I Ryggen's sound was in the vein of better known bands such as Uriah Heep, Deep Purple and early Black Sabbath, all circa early 70s. Their music has that driving bass and drum line, plenty of keyboards as both organ and synthesizers. Also of note and enjoyment is the use of two guitarists, providing some nice double solo work. The songs are split between English and Swedish lyrics. Spangaforsens Brus is an instrumental track that sounds like it may have its roots in folk music and reminds me a bit of the B-side of Mike Oldfield's "Tubular Bells" or Hergest Ridge in the guitar sound and overall compositional style. Both keyboard and guitar solos abound throughout. Naked Man uses flute in the intro before kicking in the heavy stuff and then reappearing in a Jethro Tull-ish solo toward the end. The last two tracks are live recordings, which remind me of why I was not a fan of live recordings back in the day; there's much distortion and poor sound quality. I'd have been happy with just the studio tracks.
Conclusion.If you enjoy the hard rock of the early '70s, (which is quite tame when compared to the hard rock of today) this could bring you some musical joy. Hammond Organ with a Leslie cabinet, wah-wah & fuzz-wah guitar effects: it's all here. The vocals are good, though to the native English speaker, the heavy Swedish accent can sound comical at times. The playing is good and something of a blast from the past from a band I never knew

(1975- sweden heavy prog)

Continuiamo sul filone swedese! questo è un ottimo disco con molte canzoni belle! mi piacciono le prime 3 traccie ("bitch"è quella che preferisco) in più c'è anche una ottima rivisitazione del Classico di Grieg "Hall of the mountan King" (che dovrebbe essere la 5 traccia che si chiama diversamente!). Una nota dolentissima la rec-fab che è la casa responsabile delle ristampa su cd ha fatto un lavoro pessimo e si sente un po' il fruscio del vinile anche se io ho rippato il disco da cd (originale!)

Sorry, i don't find any review about shaggy (fell free to send yours).. This is a very good work (heavy prog) I suggest the song "bitch" and the 5th track (it's a "cover" of grieg's "Hall Of The Mountan King"...revisited!) Highly Recommended!bye!
