The Old Man & The Sea • 1972 • The Old Man & The Sea

This group hailed from Jutland. They started in the end of 60-ties as Den Gamle Mand og Havet (Danish name of 'The Old Man And The Sea') playing cover versions of songs of The Nice, Procol Harum, The Cream etc. Later they changed the name for its English equivalent. In 1972 recorded one of the best albums in Denmark - symphonic progressive rock with strong organ and heavy rock tendencies. This album became soon a cult record. Unfortunately, the band, as many others, couldn't get the breakthrough and disbanded.

In 1999 a white label album appeared without any information about the issue except the tracks titles. According to Ref. 2, it contains unreleased studio tracks (probably they were to appear on the second album) and live radio recordings - pretty interesting for the collectors but with not so good sound quality. Three tracks come from the first album (Living Dead/Princess and Going Blind) but in other version. Some compositions present good music level like on previous record.
