4LP collection including "Scorch Trio", "Luggumt", "Brolt" and "Oval. In Norway "Scorch Trio" was greeted with 6/6 reviews in the two biggest newspapers and The Wire said "the scope of their improvisational ideas is breathtaking", in spirit comparing the album to The Mahavish-nu Orchestra's "The Inner Mounting Flame".

Four years after "Luggumt", "Brolt" was to become the final album with Paal Nilssen-Love behind the drums.

Following in the tradition of the previous al-bums this is a masterful example of passionate improvisation and breathtaking interplay..

The joker in this collection is "Oval", a radio session done for Yle, the Finnish broadcasting company, two years before the debut album was released.

Why this recording has been left on a shelf (surely not ours!) for so long is anyone's guess, because this is quite a remarkable recording, showing off a new group brim-ming with energy and new ideas.

Paal Nilssen-Love was only 25 at the time, but he and Ingebrigt Håker Flaten already had a reputation as one of the most energetic and creative rhythm sections in Scandina-via.

Here the Finnish guitar phenomenon Raoul Björkenheim had found the perfect partners for his new group.

"Oval" is previously un-released in any form, "Scorch Trio" has only been available on CD until now, while both "Luggumt" and "Brolt" have long been out of print on vinyl.
