Notes

This is compilation of Scandinavian pop. Part of the liner notes by Tomas Diez Guerra:

MUFFLON 5 / ANN CARLBERGER - Como guinda para este sabroso pastel nórdico están estos dos nombres. Por un lado, el cuarteto que se dió a conocer en las famosas sesiones de la BBC en el show de JOHN PEEL. Son continuadoes de una de las agrupaciones más interesantes de Suecia THE BEAR QUARTET. En otro campo musical absolutamente diferente está ANN CARLBERGER, una insinuante mujer repleta de clase pop, esa elegancia inteligente que sólo algunas artistas desprenden. Basta decir como referencia que detras está MARTY WILSON PIPER, conocido por los buenos "gourmets" como el guitarrista y compositor del grupo THE CHURCH (casado con ella).

Approximate English translation:

MUFFLON 5 / ANN CARLBERGER - As icing for this tasty Nordic cake are these two names. On the one hand, the quartet that became known in the famous BBC sessions of JOHN PEEL. They are a continuation of one of the most interesting groups from Sweden, THE BEAR QUARTET. In another, absolutely different musical field is ANN CARLBERGER, an insinuating woman full of pop class, that smart elegance that only some artists give off. Suffice it to say as a reference that behind this is MARTY WILLSON-PIPER, known by the good "gourmets" as the guitarist and composer of the group THE CHURCH (married to her).
