Buried Treasure: Elonkorjuu
Harvest Time, Parlophone, Finland 1971. £1,200+
Finland’s early progressive scene boasted some interesting acts, with the most acknowledged being Wigwam.
Shaking in the shadows were lesser-known greats such as Kalevala, Apollo, Charlies, Tasavallan Presidentti, and Elonkorjuu (Finnish for ‘harvest’). Today, original pressings of albums by all of these artists are worth a small fortune in their own right. Harvest Time by Elonkorjuu is right up there at £1,200 – but is it any good?
