VA - People In Motion! 20 Cuts From The Groovy Norway 1966-1973



Here is a mixtape with norwegian acts from the creative period 1966-1973. For some unknown reasons the norwegian artists handle (when they sung) the english language much better than many other europeans (sweden for example) artists - maybe it's some dialectal thing. This compilation includes some groovy hippie tinged folkrock (norway must have been obsessed by Jethro Tull at the time), sometimes with a progressive or psychedelic touch, there is also some groovy anglophile pop, experimental rock, jazzy funk grooves and some fuzzy guitars (at the end of the mix). This was not a try do a fair overview of the scene, some groups in the vein progressive/symphonic rock are excluded (cause I'm not a big fan of those genres). Have fun with the people in motion!

    1. Thank you for hangin' on the blog! I think all of the scandinavians were rather groovy back then - even Finland!
