Blond: The Lilac Years

[cover art]

Blond grew out of the Swedish heroes Tages, who ruled Sweden's hit parade during their 1964-67 heyday and arguably was one the best Scandinavian rock groups in the 60's. 1969's Lilac Years, a failed attempt to reach the British music market, is their most psychedelic album featuring moody pop-psych melodies, great guitar works, weird effects and lush orchestration. Produced by Andy Henrickson (King Crimson, Quatermass, Life and Jericho).

The 2003 CD reissue of this LP adds several bonus tracks, among them a live cover of "The Weight", probably recorded at the studios of Swedish television channel STV. The reissue also includes a video CD-R with Blond performing "The Weight" on STV, that originally aired in Sweden on July 29, 1970.
