The Essence of Swedish Progressive Music 1967–1979

Looking for a slightly different Christmas gift? How about a 4 CD box of Swedish progressive music from the late 60's to the late 70's?

Following the book The Encyclopedia of Swedish Progressive Music 1967–1979 released earlier this year, comes a collection of tracks/artists that goes for the essence of Swedish progressive music.

"Explore the experimental groups, the power trios and the psychedelic acts. Over five hours of music, with the majority of the tracks previously unreleased on CD. Whereas most other compilations from this part of the Swedish rock era have focused on its political angle, this time we take the opposite route. It’s time to let the music do the talking!"

The limited edition box set titled The Essence of Swedish Progressive Music 1967–1979 will be released November 15.
Read more about it here. And see the full track listing here.

Looks like a must-have for the person interested in Swedish progressive music of yore!
