Radka Toneff Live in Hamburg Limited Gatefold 180gram Vinyl 2LP Set

'Live in Hamburg' by vocalist/composer Radka Toneff (alongside ECM legend Arild Andersen) must be one of the finest Norwegian concert albums ever made - regardless of genre. Now this classic is being released on vinyl for the first time, in a 180g 2LP edition with a gatefold cover. At the same time a new CD edition with an updated cover is being released. 'Live in Hamburg' was released over ten years after Radka Toneff passed away, and shows a side of her that had never before been documented on a recording. The album won a Spellemannspris, the Norwegian Grammy award, in 1993. The material on the album comes from a concert the Radka Toneff Quartet held at the legendary jazz club Onkel Pös Carnegie Hall in Hamburg on 10 March 1981. The German radio station NDR broadcast an hour of the concert live, and an edited version of the recording became this album, a modern classic. Arild Andersen and sound technician Jan Erik Kongshaug went through the tapes from NDR and edited the record, which was released in 1993 as the fourth recording released under Radka Toneff's name. The album provides a welcome and unsentimental snapshot of a unique artist's voice that became silent too soon, but that had a profound impact on Norwegian music history.
