Cosmic Love has nothing to do with the club



"Sound Painted Pictures Of Cosmic Love" doesn't that sound nice?
In fact it is.... so nice that's in my Top 10 of All Times. Ever......
Here's a bit of info from the back cover so we might get a glimpse what cosmic love is about ; ) "I really wish to be in harmony, to feel and learn the power which makes the flowers grow, the power which makes the seed sprout and break through the earth. The cosmic power from the universe called love and brotherhood, which radiates from the universe and exists everywhere, but only is realized by few. If you reach that, will you have no need for concern or doubt, because then you understand that nothing is impossible for you."
Gert Thrue plays Hammond, Moog, Fender Piano, Roland Synthesizer and Logan Stringers (??). On the title track that covers all of side A Jan Preus plays the drums. He changes sticks with Per Hoyer for Side B. The record was produced in the Netherlands. Though Gert Thrue is from Denmark. The lovely message on the back cover is in Dansk and English. Hmm... Anyway, as 95% percent of you are probably not here to read nice little stories ..... Feel some cosmic love and of course thanks to Uli for selling me this beautiful piece of music!

Cheers, Basso

the difference: the music will hopefully not run away as time does ... ; )

Just to let you know that the main reason i have your blog in my bookmarks is precisely because of your "nice little stories" as you put it. I really like it when people tell why they love a certain record and try to express what music means to them.
So please carry on...
PS : The download link is nice too, mind you!

basso said...

Thanks Ben! Next time I'll try to make up a real proper description and some more background stuff. Good to hear that it's not just all about downloading ; )

This is the most pleasure-giving record I have heard in months. It is so nice. BTW, since the cover is a bit corny at first glance, I might have skipped over it were it not for the write up. A little description helps, and damn damn it sold me on this fine fine record thank god.

I'll have a look if I find a name on the cover somewhere.
