2019 pressing of this forgotten Dutch jazz-rock gem by the Erwin Somer Group! In line with the seventies release, covers come in pink, green and orange (no particular cover guaranteed)
In June 1972, five very talented musicians decided to join forces to form the jazz-rock band “Erwin Somer Group”. Erwin Somer himself studied art and music in Groningen and had his own bands in Canada and the Netherlands. Furthermore, the band consisted of the former rhythm section of the famous Dutch blues group “Cuby and the Blizzards”: Hans La Faille, Helmig van de Vegt and Jaap van Eik. Saxophonist Rudy van Dijk graduated from the conservatory in Zwolle. He was also one of the co-founders of “Blues Dimension”, a Dutch super group in the sixties. This record is a reissue of their first and only, hard-to-get album, of which only a handful still exists.
Recorded on January the 4th and 6th at Mirasound Studio’s, Wijhe, The Netherlands.
* Recorded live at “De Toverbal”, Maassluis, The Netherlands on the 29th of December 1973.
