The First 30 Years!
30/30 is a worthy summary of the first 30 years in Jan Eggum´s career. Here are gathered 30 songs from 30 years, composed or recorded in each of the years since his debut as a solo artist in 1975 until 2005. The record bears witness to Eggum´s unique contribution to Norwegian music, and especially the versatility that characterizes his production. Here we see his graveness, his playfulness and humor, his masterful way with words, his social criticism, his insightful honesty and his sharp observations. The release consists of a series of hand-picked classics. It all begins with "De skulle begrave en konge stor" from 1975 and ends with "Det føles bra" from 2005. In between are well-known gems like "Du kjenner ikkje meg", "Ryktet forteller”, "På ´an igjen", "Mor, jeg vil tilbake" and "Så mange kvinner". In addition are several previously unreleased songs and live recordings included.
30/30 – Jan Eggum marks his first 30 years as a record artist.
On the Way
It is often said (among others by Eggum himself) that the way to the destination is far more important than the goal itself. In that sense, Eggum has made it his maxim to be constantly on the way. He is the restless wanderer with gypsy blood in his veins, and a deep respect for art. It is almost like he does not want to get to your destination. He enjoys the feeling of constantly being on the way towards an unknown destination. It is precisely this desire to be on the way that makes Eggum always able to give of his best, and be so darn productive.
30 Years, 30 Tracks
Jan Eggum celebrates his first 30 years as a recording artist with 30 songs from 30 years – one from each year, some recorded and others composed that very year. Here is a brand new version of "Et kort sekund" which was written in 2000, recorded live at Rockefeller in April 2005. Equally fresh is the collection’s last song, "Det føles bra" – written in 1994 and recorded in May 2005. Obviously, this is just an appetizer. The main course consists of 300 songs. And more to come. Jan Eggum in on his way.
