Young Flowers - Blomsterpistolen - 1968 (Den) Blues Psych

Behold! The finest mixture of Danish psychedelic blues ever to be released; Blomserpistolen (the Flower Gun!). If you dig the late 60's blues psych bands - this record will blow your mind. Young Flowers formed in Copenhagen in the summer of '67 by Jens Dahl (guitar), Peter Ingemann (bass & vocals) and Ken Gudman (drums). Ken and Jens had been playing together in the beat-group "the Defenders" and Peter Ingemann came from another beat-group called Seven Sounds. They released a single during '67 called Like Birds after this release saw the light of day, the guitarist Jens Dahl left the group and was replaced by Peer Frost (who formerly had been playing with Peter Belli & Les Rivals). Young Flowers were very inspired by rock and blues power trios like The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream and Canned Heat. These influences can be heard very easily in Young Flowers' music. Here is some of great footage of the band jamming.

This record contains great solos, nice trippy bluesy vocals and a nostalgic feeling of the late 60's (which I don't know anything about, because I wasn't there, but anyway!). Overall a fantastic record!
