Träd Gräs och Stenar (swe psych folk-prog exp)
Non so per quale motivo nutrivo molto interesse per sentire questo gruppo ...non sono entusiasta!è una sorta di psych sperimentale!spesso registrata in presa diretta...interessanti sono le cover di Hendrix, degli Yardbirds e Stones...nulla più!
Träd, Gräs Och Stenar - Träd, Gräs Och Stenar (1969 swe psych)
First record under the name "Träd, Gräs Och Stenar" by the swedish psych/underground heroes Pärson Sound/International Harvester/Harvester/Träd, Gräs Och Stenar. Not as good as earlier recordings, but "Sanningens Silverflod" is a classic.
Träd, Gräs Och Stenar - Mors Mors (1973)
This is the Trad Gras record that I return to most. It's maybe not as endlessly deep as the head-spinning Parson Sound reissue or as drool-enducing as some of the jams on Sov Gott Rose-Marie, but that doesn't mean it's not worthy. This was one of the last releases from their first period together and it sounds like they're totally at ease, improvising, jamming and having amazing fun... Chrisboogie is one of their best, the guitars just effortlessly circling each other and lifting the rest of the band ever upwards. Last Time starts off a pretty straight Rolling Stones cover, before going all glassy-eyed and zoned out, the guitars icing over and locking into repetitive mantras. They did this on other records with 'All Along the Watchtower', and 'Satisfaction'; when it happens it turns pretty average covers into beautiful and mesmeric trance-outs. The drumming is also totally perfect, light and energetic and completely breathless throughout the 16 minutes of Sommerlaten. I absolutely love this record and would recommend it as a great starting point for anyone.
