ANDERS GIÆVER JOKKE & VALENTINERNE - FRELST
Frelst 1991 is Jokke og Valentinerne's fourth and best-selling album. In the author's opinion, it is also Valentine's masterpiece, and one of the very best Norwegian rock albums from this golden age, sizzling with rock, pop, gospel, reggae, indie and shows. Loud and vulnerable, confident and doubtful, self-experienced and dreamy, with immortal classics such as «Aftenbønn», «Tempo» and «Her kommer vinteren». The record received the Spellemann Prize in the category for rock during an unforgettable presentation in 1992.
