SECRET OYSTER Vidunderlige Kaelling
Laserís Edge LE1043 (2005)

Secret Oyster were a 70s Danish prog band, mixing rock and jazz. This, their 3rd album and on CD for the first time (pus some previously unreleased tracks added), was commissioned for the opera of the albumís name. From the sleevenotes, it appears to translate to Wonderful Bitch. Charming!!!

The operaís popularity was partly to blame on the lead dancer, who danced some scenes in the nude, and also appears (tastefully) on the front cover.

Some tracks nod at electronic ambient, while others are more funky, adding a touch of jazz fusion. Could appeal to fans of Soft Machine and Mahavishnu Orchestra.

On record itís a little lost, disjointed. I guess you have to see the show to get it in context.

Some good guitar work, especially on the 3rd track, make it worth checking out.
