From the somewhat sparse, yet unique catalogue of adventurous, high-quality rock music coming out of Scandinavia in the late '60s, the sole album Get Dreamy by The Dream has been one of the most hunted treasures. Originally released in 1967, the album proves that the youth of Norway were just as happy swinging as their blighty cousins. It also marks the beginning of guitar legend Terje Rypdals journey from beat music and pop into new musical territories, which would ultimately lead him to become a key player in the European jazz world...
Get Dreamy opens with 'Green Things (From Outer Space)', a track which describes the heartbreak of aliens abducting your love. Welcome to the '60s, time traveller. It plods on in a similar vein for the rest of the album. There's no denying it's interesting, but would you want to listen to it more than once?
Unless you're a child of the era, it's doubtful you'll find much to enjoy here - other than for novelties sake. This is a bizarre album; a product of its time.
