NOVEMBER/2:a NOVEMBER SLP-2520 (-71) SWEDEN

For background check post on their 1970 debute "En Ny Tid Är Här". That has always been my favorite with the band - early hard rock with catchy melodies and good guitars, conveyed by a remaining sixties psych feel and playful atmosphere. This follow-up has a lot of the same, but now with a little bit denser production (by George "Jojje" Wadenius who also assists on piano and organ), coming through slower, heavier and having a seemingly more serious aim. Even though I mostly prefer the happier former LP there's no denying this too is excellent hard rock psych/prog. All numbers self-penned with Swedish lyrics. Maybe not as melodic as the first but with lots of fantastic guitars, a fair share of tempo changes and sometimes odd chord sequences. Mix and audio tophole giving true connection when I'm in for a darker ride. Favorite tracks - the long various "På Väg" and the uptempo "Mina Fotspår Fylls Av Vatten". This was the only original release, not counting bootlegs and counterfeits. Reissued on CD 1995 (Sonet SLPCD -2520) and limited edition/numbered vinyl 2012 (Sonet/Universal SLP-2520/ 06025279797-9). First had label as shown here and laminated fold/out cover. (SCÄ*) (CCÖ*)
