Without doubt, LEGEND "From the Fjords" original vinyl album, has been widely regarded as one of the most influential albums in genre history, showcasing a unique blend of high class musicianship and imaginative epic lyrics and music. The album manages to embrace progressive rock elements as well as classic rock, fusion and jazz passages and it's no wonder that since 1979 of its original release, it made quite of an impact to other heavier music styles as well from the broader rock music spectrum. After many years of careful reconsiderations and taking into account the ongoing demand for an official reissue, the band gave us permission to officially re-release the album on vinyl and CD.
Ray Frigon, the original drummer of the band, supervised the whole process and answered in great depth and detail to our set of questions, resulting to a highly informative multi page interview that basically covers the early years of the band and the years to follow.
Given that 2019 marks the 40th Anniversary since the album's release, we made sure to include everything a LEGEND fan would like to have, so this special black vinyl edition comes with:
- Bonus CD with 5 unreleased LEGEND songs from a demo tape which was recorded before the album
