Kari Pöyry's all too brief "My Star" EP from Finland 1980
Another gift of our long lost friend...
"Single track, one-sided promo 12'' single / EP-- This is the only release Kari Pöyry did, we all can ask - WHY!"
Full information has been nonetheless included in the database here...
This is a simply gorgeous piece of composed music with an acoustic guitar intro that builds up in intensity to a more chamber-like exposition of dark melodies and strange chords, expressing the love of the artist for his wife or girlfriend in the most tender way. Really lovely as a post-valentine piece of music.
Note the presence of famed Finnish conductor Saraste who also arranged the strings (and whose career stretches all the way to the present day without interruption, a rarity for us to see here) and the fusionary prog-famous Nono Söderberg whose album "Nono" everyone here should already be familiar with.
