Following RPM International's Young
Flowers anthology, which attracted national press coverage in their home country
Denmark, we continue our programme of reissuing the best and most collectable
was Denmark’s Sergeant Pepper.
English psychedelia found a home in Denmark in 1967 with The Floor, whose only
album 1st Floor (Philips XPY
855701)comes close to The Hollies at their most whimsical and The Kinks at
their most pastoral.
most of The Floor were in The Hitmakers, Denmark’s kings of beat pop. The
summer of love arrived, they spilt and four-fifths picked up the pieces. A new
guitarist was added.
‘Turn It On’
they sang, and they did. Flowers, drinking tea, hanging out with Mrs O’Grady
and Mr Jones were central to 1st Floor.
Beautifully and baroquely orchestrated, the album showcased a song, by future
Abba member Bjorn Ulvaeus.
official reissue of this psychedelic pop rarity is re-mastered from the
original tapes. The Floor's 1968 non album single is included as a bonus.
