Pressrelease FANTASY (EMI 1988). Two years ago Erik’s first LP “Perfect Partners” was released. A debut LP that got a fantastic reception with plaudits like “A new star” (GP), “Outstanding musicality” (OJ), “Debut above the norm” (SvD). “Fantasy” is the name of his second LP, and just as on the first all the material is his own – the music and the lyrics. Most of the album is instrumental and naturally it is dominated by Erik’s guitar playing. He is autodidactic. Hard training over the years has given him a fantastic technique and on this album the turns are a little wider. Erik is very productive. He is always working on a new melody. He gets his inspiration from all sorts of music, mostly perhaps from rock music, which on this LP is noticeable in, for example, “Easy On You” and “Nowhereland”. André Ferrari on drums, Bo Knutsson bass, Tommy Lydell keyboard, Lilling Palmeklint vocals on 2, 4, Stefan Nilsson piano, Jens Johansson keyboardsolo on 6, David Wilczewski saxofonsolo on 1, Ulf Adåker trumpet on 10.
