The Great Gig In Disguise
As already mentioned in this blog, Rune Grammofon are ready for Christmas with four new limited edition vinyl releases (500 numbered copies).
And here we are with Bergen´s own The Last Hurrah!!, and their 10" "The great gig in disguise".
Side A is the folk-pop side, starting with a great HP Gundersen song called "Sleeping without you", and following with a cover of Sandy Denny´s "Who knows where the time goes".
Side B is the prog side, with another fine one from Gundersen ("Chromatic Hysteria") and The Last Hurrah!!´s Pink Floyd cover "The great gig in the sky", originally on Mojo´s tribute CD "Return to the dark side of the moon" (October issue 2011).
The musicians: Heidi Goodbye (voc), HP Gundersen (g, pedal steel), Nils Einar Vinjor (g), Sonja Otto (keyb, b voc), Alex Grieg (b), Nils Are Drønen (dr), Sam Fossbakk (ringmodulator, theremin), Tomine Mikkeline Eide (b voc) og Mari Persen (strings, string arrangements).
Cover (as usual) by Kim Hiorthøy.
