Green Man
NEWLY REMASTERED EDITION OF THE CLASSIC 1971 ALBUM BY DANISH PROGRESSIVE ROCK GROUP ACHE - CHAMPIONED BY JULIAN COPE
BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & NEW ESSAY

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly re-mastered edition of the classic debut album by Danish Progressive Rock group ACHE.
Formed in 1968, with a line-up of TORSTEN OLAFSSON (bass, vocals), FINN OLAFSSON (guitar, vocals), PETER MELLIN (organ, piano) and GLEN FISHER (drums and percussion), ACHE first came to attention in Denmark with their work DE HOMINE URBANO ("About Urban Man”) which was the first ever Rock ballet, performed by the Royal Danish Ballet Company in Copenhagen in 1969. Influenced by groups such as The Nice, Iron Butterfly and more, ACHE’s music was a powerful Psychedelic Progressive Rock driven by Peter Mellin’s powerful Hammond Organ and the fluid guitar playing of Finn Olafsson.
ACHE’s second album, "GREEN MAN” was released in June 1971 in Europe and was arguably the band’s finest hour, featuring classics such as ‘Equatorial Rain’, ‘The Invasion’ and ‘Shadow of a Gypsy’.
Hailed by JULIAN COPE in his on-line DANSKROCKSAMPLER, ACHE’s two albums for Philips are now hailed as Psych / Prog classics.
This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly re-mastered and features a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork with a new essay.
