Foreningen Til Livets Beskyttelse - s/t - 1972 (Den) Avant-garde/Progressive Rock

Another gem from Spectator Records. Foreningen Til Livets Beskyttelse (the Organisation For Protection of Life) is a group based on the group "Den Lille Prins". It was a Danish hippy band playing jazz and folk inspired hippy music. The line-up was Susanne Hammilton (vocals & lyrics), Gorm Larsen (saxophone & flute), Christian Risgaard Thomsen (piano & violin) and Malthe Envold Nielsen (guitar & vocals). I do not know who played bass nor drums, but there are plenty of that on the album as well.

Overall this is a good hippy record with lyrics mainly about society (what you'd expect from a hippy band from this period). The first song "Elverkongen" sounds like a softer version of Comus with a pinch of Alrune Rod. It is followed by a jolly and quite out of place country-like instrumental. From here on and out it is pretty much simple hippy hymns about society. That been said, it's not that the album isn't good, it isn't the most exciting album to listen to, but it is above average, I've heard plenty of worse records.
