Sven Libaek - Solar Flares, 1974


This album is so beautiful. Can find some elements of easy listening and space age pop with a pretty funky grooves in some track: Destination Omega 3 or Quasars. The best of the album is the self named Solar Flares, space bossa nova with an electric guitar solo and synthesizer, amazing! Meteoric Rain and Conversations with Hal are great too. One day a friend of mine who discovered this composer via last.fm asked me - is this Air, the french band? and now I think he was not so far to defining its style. It's like a retro Moon Safari, without vocals.

1, Solar Flares
2, Stella Maris
3, Lift Off
4, Destination Omega 3
5, Conversations with Hal
6, No Flowers On Venus
7, Quasars
8, Meteoric Rain
9, Space Walk
10, Infinite Journey
11, In Nebular Orbit
12, ...and Beyond

Sun Safari!

This is a an amazing little hybrid. I love the vibes, electic guitar, horns. It's easy listening, lounge,funky, bossa. I can't wait to listen to it again in the morning. Thank you ever so much!!!

when i read that this sounds like the french group air i thought, 'yea, yea, sure...'.

then i heard the first notes, and my jaw dropped!

so amazing that we had this music in 1974, and almost nobody knew. thanks so much!
