Swedish keyboard participant/composer Bo Hansson 1st emerged in the 1960s within a duo that made a name for itself, 1st in Sweden and about tour in Europe, and issued some 3 albums. Jimi Hendrix noticed the group and apparently documented some jams with Hansson which have thus far continued to be unreleased. The guitarist documented among Hansson’s tunes (“Tax-Free”), as well as the group later on toured with the knowledge. Through the early ’70s, Hansson burst within the worldwide scene along with his idea recording Lord from the Bands, an all-instrumental recording inspired from the literary trilogy compiled by J.R.R. Tolkien, which have been a best-seller for a long time among university students. The recording received precious metal record honours in Britain and Australia. Certified by Tony Stratton-Smith’s Charisma Information label in Britain and America, the record was the main topic of an extensive tv marketing campaign that transformed it right into a strike in progressive rock and roll circles. Two following albums, Magician’s Hat and Attic Thoughts, had been also released throughout European countries and in the us. Hansson was apparently incapacitated by disease in his last mentioned years, and hadn’t documented following 1980s. He passed away on Apr 24, 2010.
