For a younger generation in Sweden, Janne Schaffer is probably better known as the guitar-playing zebra in the 'Electric Banana Band', a platinum-selling band from a childrens television show.
Janne also backed several big names in the biz...appearing on many songs by Abba, Bob Marley and Johnny Nash to name a few. His first few albums leaned towards jazz fusion, with this, 'Kartharsis' (4th solo album) being his finest achievement as a solo performer in my opinion. I've always had a soft spot for 70's fusion, and if you enjoy Jeff Beck 'Blow By Blow', Return To Forever, Mahavishnu Orchestra etc, then you're sure to have fun with this also. Janne's playing is superb on this release.
How does one an additional release of this? The US Columbia version?
