Tages Studio

  • Swedish album from the same league as the Beatles’ ’Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ and ’Oddessey &, Oracle’ by the Zombies.
  • Psychedelic pop masterpiece, an essential 1967 mod–freakbeat album.
  • Includes promo film ’Dalamania’, produced and telecasted by Sweden’s national SVT in 1968.
  • Includes attractive full color 8-page booklet, 25 x 25cms with loads of rare memorabilia and photos.
  • It happened in 1967... ‚The Summer of Love’ may date back 50 years, but ’Tages – Studio’ will remain a timeless classic. Every household should get its copy!!!
 , Tages (pronounced "tah-guess") are universally known as the best sixties pop band from Sweden. They struck it big early, hitting the Swedish #1 with Sleep Little Girl in 1964! Their efforts in the psychedelic era would be their last. ’Studio’ should sit comfortably next to other masterpieces of the year 1967, a few notches closer to ’Odessey &, Oracle’ than ’Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’. ,

Thanks to the tape cuts, orchestration, harmonies, and studio tricks, it sounds like the guys got their hands on a copy of Brian Wilson's then yet unreleased ’Smile’ tapes. Certainly, anybody willing to spend enough time exploring all the rabbit holes in the Beatles’ catalog owes themselves a trip through this marvelous record  ,

Have You Seen Your Brother Lately

The album opener, Have You Seen Your Brother Lately, proves how apt the name ’Studio’ is for such a creatively produced statement. Few won't be sold within the first few seconds, hearing a looping string quartet surrender to a commanding rhythm highlighted by pounding drums and boxy plucked bass lines. Delicate touches of grand piano and kazoo bust open the door to an album rife with auditory treats and excellent craftmanship. Vocals are good, reminding of an edgier Colin Blunstone, with plenty of fine backup parts.  ,  , ,

’Studio’ comes across of rather diverse nature. It's My Life, the second track growls out dark guitar distortions straight from the Move arsenal under workout vocal leads. The drums stand out, consistently providing ahead-of-their-time, vicious beats. ,

Tunes are often loaded with orchestration like the soft ballad, People Without Faces, and bouncier brass marches like What's The Time and She's Having A Baby Now. Tasteful psychedelic treatments abound in backwards guitar leads, weird stomp boxes, and sound effects sprinkled throughout the record.  ,

First time on DVD, ever

The accompanying previously unreleased DVD of ’Dalamania’ was produced by Swedish national TV, SVT and shows the Tages on the height of their psychedelic career. This little piece of rock history appears to be such a thing as the Swedish version of the UK Beatles movie, ’Magical Mystery Tour’. Since its original broadcast in 1968, ’Dalamania’ has remained unnoticed on the shelfs of SVT. First time on DVD, ever.  ,  ,

An album like ’Studio’ should have propelled the Tages to the top 500 lists, worldwide, rather than remain a Swedish Rock ’n’ Roll footnote. Members of the Tages would form Blond in 1969 a band that disbanded in 1970.

Tages Studio (180g Vinyl & DVD)Tages were named after the middle name of one of the members: Dan Tage Larsson. Tages were one of the most popular Swedish pop groups in Sweden during the 1960s.

Internationally, they were often regarded the best Swedish pop group of their times. The band performed their own material, mainly written by members Göran Lagerberg, Tommy Blom, Daniel Larsson and Anders Töpel, as well as some covers.

Tages took up the cudgels for fashionable dresses and were on the forefront for fancy clothes in Sweden. Band members came under criticism from others in the industry who thought that the members of Tages were not real musicians. The guys took this criticism hard, and during the 1960s the band quickly developed into a competent world-class pop band in the world.

The band was formed in the summer of 1963 in Gothenburg as Tage's Skifflegrupp consisting of five guys aged 16 or 17. In 1964 they changed their name to the Tages. In August, the Tages won the GT's ‘West Coast Beatles’ battle-of-the-bands as they sounded and looked like the Beatles. Their price was the recording of their first 45 single Sleep Little Girl which became a big hit and ended up at number one on the Swedish charts.

Several successful singles followed including I Should Be Glad, Don't Turn Your Back, The One For You, So Many Girls, In My Dreams and Miss Mac BarenEvery Raindrop Means A Lot was the group's first psychedelic-inspired single. It was released in February 1967. In November of the same year they released their fifth LP, ‘Studio’ which is considered one of the best Swedish pop records from that time. In spring 1968, Tages entered the top ten for the last timewith  There's A Blind Man Playing Fiddle in the Street. The group then released two more singles. Fantasy Island remains their most psychedelic effort.

On August 31, 1968 Tommy Blom quit the group. The other band members continued as a quartet until the spring 1969. Then they changed their name to Blonde working on their break through abroad. They recorded a new album in London which was later released in Sweden, Scandinavia, the UK, Holland, USA, New Zealand and South Africa. But the global launch did not come off well, and Blonde was dissolved during the summer of 1970.

Echte Psychedelic Poprock Rarität.

InMusic 6-7/17 "Vinyl-Freunde können sich hier über eine echte Psychedelic-Poprock Rarität aus dem Jahre 1967 freuen."

20 May 2017


Musikreviews 20.05.2017 "Die in einer kunststoffgefütterten Hülle verpackte LP kommt auf 180g-Vinyl in einem schönen Klapp-Cover und mit einem achtseitigen, fast LP-großen, bunten Booklet voller rarer Fotos und einer doppelseitigen TAGES-Geschichte in schwedischer Sprache daher. Doch das war noch nicht alles, die eigentliche Sensation verbirgt sich noch immer in der linken Plattentasche:
Eine bisher unveröffentlichte DVD mit dem Titel „Dalamania“!

Rockhistorischer Schatz

Good Times 3-17 "Beigefügt wurde der 180g-Platte ein achtseitiges Booklet und eine DVD, die einen 30minütigen TV-Beitrag enthält, der auch das Schaffen von Tages zum Inhalt hat. Ein rockhistorischer Schatz!"

Klasse Paket

Rocktimes, 7.05.17 "Insgesamt ein klasse Paket einer damals richtig guten Band, die durchaus auch Beachtung außerhalb Skandinaviens verdient gehabt hätte."

Lust am experimentellen Klamauk

Classic Rock 5-17 "Die LP kommt im schönen Klappcover daher, dem auch noch der rare halbstündige Promotionfilm "Dalamania" beigefügt ist. Das strahlt eine ähnliche Lust am experimentellen Klamauk aus, die auch die Beatles-Film auszeichnete"

Press - Tages - Studio (180g Vinyl & DVD) -
Press - Tages - Studio (180g Vinyl & DVD) - The 50 best psychedelic rock albums of the Summer of Love... They could have been bigger than the Beatles. Well of course not, but they were the biggest and best pop band to come out of Sweden in the ‘60s. Before this record they were a straight up beat pop rock and roll band, having released two albums in Sweden that were huge hits there.
