Various artists: Nordic Roots-A NorthSide Collection (CD, 77:49); NSD6016, 1998 NorthSide 530 North Third Street, Suite 230 Minneapolis, MN 55401 USA Ph: 612-375-0233, Fax: 612-359-9580 Email: email@example.com Cyberhome: http://www.noside.com/ This is great way to get hip to all the great music coming outta Scandinavia these days. 20 tracks running in length from 2:17 to 6:19 get right to the heart a healthy traditional music scene as well modern compositions. What you will find is a wide spectrum of eclectic voice and instrumentation covering all of NorthSide's artists. This material is as good as and goes beyond that "Riverdance" rave. This an unadorned, brazen, frolic in the tundra tunes. It is alive with centuries of history and inspiration from fjord to frigid highlands. Experience the majestic magic vocals of Garmana, the fiery fiddle of Hege Rimestad, the ribald Horslipian folk rock/world fusion of Hoven Droven, and many more. Feel the hearty warmth in the "Arctic Circle club" style of music. "Come on in, the water's just above freezing but what a rush!" Well enjoyed and recommended sampler. Better yet, last I checked this release was only $3.00. Ya can't go wrong folks, really. ~ John W. Patterson
