Treasures Unearthed: Sven Libaek- The Music of Sven Libaek (1967)
Splendid news, fellows! The Music of Sven Libaek has turned up. It's been up and about since March 3rd, over at the relative newcomer and extremely promising blog, Urban Bowerbird. I don't know how this one eluded my discovery for those two months, but now I've found it I'm tickled pink. Tickled just entirely pink.
First, let me say that Urban Bowerbird is having a great start, popping up not only this elusive treasure but also some awesome Libaek 45s and an interesting selection of rare Australian records, including a great LP from John Sangster. So, I'd say this is a spot to keep your eye on, to be sure.
Now, I shall opine that The Music of Sven Libaek is awesome. It's great. Some of his earliest work, it features Nature Walkabout-esque compositions played in a simpler style more in line with The Set. You'll want to hear it, friends, for it is so fine. Head on over and have a listen, then thank the man for what he's done.
