Foreningen Til Livets Beskyttelse - "Foreningen Til Livets Beskyttelse" {Denmark} [1972] (Progrock)

I love it and it's very rare.

Unfortunately,
I didn't find a review
I didn't find the Line-up (incomplete)

Only:

progrock
mega rare
Name of the band in English: Organisation to Protection of Life.
Flower-power-hippie-psych-folk proggy rock - u name it kind of music - in stunning condition. Extremely rare in this condition - looks almost unplayed! http://www.musiccollector.dk/0nes-test/fastpris/popup.asp?VareID=5178

Litt musikk fra hippietiden kan være et kjærkommet om enn nostalgisk bekjentskap.
DEN LILLE PRINS~Hippieology vol. 1
~From the ancient rock-years in Denmark. DEN LILE PRINS and FORENINGEN TILL LIVETS BESKYTTELSE was situated in a comunity outside Aalborg in Jyland Denmark around '70 - '72. This is more or less the same story as FUREKAABEN from Copenhagen: People are living together in a community, some of them are musicians, and.. wow, you have a band ! Just the girl Susanne Hamilton is from Copenhagen, and she was presentet to the group via the "producer" from ancient rec. label Spectator. No wonder that the two LPs sounds like something between FUREKABEN and SKOUSEN / IINGEMANN. That means rock based on folk. Instruments are: Acoustic and electric guitars, bass, drums, violin, saxophone, jewharp, mandolin and lotsa vocal. Lyrics are naive-but-with-a-big-warm-heart as they came those days, and this was not bad at all. The atmosphere is so groowy and friedley as you can think of. Those days were really something. These two LPs on one CD tells us something about why the early hippie-rock-days were so good.

There is a images in http://www.karma.dk/Dk_3.htm
But i'm not sure they are the same album?
some review in Danish:
Det er et scoop at vi har gravet to gamle LP'er fra 1971 og 1972 op af den nordjydske undergrund. Nemlig Den Lille Prins og Foreningen Til Livets Beskyttelse. Begge LP'er kunne være på 1 CD. Her er den så!! Det er det bedste jydske muld der vælter frem her, - en mellemting mellem furekåben og Skousen/Ingemann, og dog med sin helt egen lyd. Rigtig dejlige optimistiske hippie-flower-power vibrationer vælter frem. En hilsen fra en skøn tid. Thomas Gjurup står for 8 siders bookletten, så den er i topklasse.

Does anyone know if this is available on cd?
