Mikael Akerfeldt, of Opeth fame, has recently posted a blog on his MySpace page asking for help from anyone and everyone in locating hard to find records. To see the extensive list of records that might well shine some light on the legendary frontman's influences read the entire blog at this location. An excerpt from the blog follows:
Got a massive repsonse on the last blog, and lots of suggestions where to find the Freddy Lindquist ”Menu” Lp. Yet I forgot to mention I’m only after the original 1st pressing, not Cd’s, counterfeits or reissued vinyl. Yes I’m anal like that….! Anyways, got me thinking…why don’t I list all the albums I’m after??? Maybe you’d stumble upon something by “accident” that I’d be interested in?
"Basically I’ve been a record collection for years and despite my travels around the globe there’s still a bunch of records that I haven’t found. And on top of that I never have enough spare time to wander round the record shops these days. Oh, and there aren’t many of them around either any more for that matter.
"I’m not looking for gifts, I will pay good money for some of these records and I insist on paying for these should you find them, OK? No gifts please!! Just to get that outta the way… Obviously if you help me out I’ll treat you to tickets and backstage passes when Opeth comes to a city near you…no problemo!
"Secondly, again, I’m only looking for original 1st pressings, no CD’s, reissues or anything like that. I will list the Lp’s divided into countries where the bands were from, so that it might be easier to track down domestic artists if you live in the specific country…who knows?
"Email me here if you find something or got questions. Also, the better the condition, the better the dough I’ll cough up for ‘em.
"And, thanks in advance, help an ol’ music junkie out will ya???"
