Arbete och Fritid

1969 - 1972 Arbete & Fritid

This was the first album with Arbete och Fritid (Work and Leasure) and the first time Kjell Westling, Roland Keijser and I recorded together. Torsten Eckerman on trumpet and Ove Karlsson on cello completed the line-up. I remember that the sound engineer only had eight tracks so he put the bass drum on the same channel as the cello! It complicated the mixing.
