- There is lots of gold on the bands. Among others, one can hear how, in particular, Kim Larsen and guitarist Franz Beckerlee stands and bites of each other on the stage, when they turn the head away from the microphones. It is not bad talk. But phrases such as 'you was not nice yesterday'.

One should here think of the band's members at that time were always together 24 hours a day. So that was when the irritations and conflicts along the way. You also get a clear impression that Søren Berlev is trying to hold together the band and pour in oil upon the waters, " says Bo Ellegaard.

The 11 cassette tapes were bought last year on an Internet-auction in the UNITED states. Bo Ellegaard had not even afford to buy the tapes, so he allies himself with two friends who also are big, Gasolin'fans.

now, The big question is now, what needs to be done with the musical and historical gold mine.

- We see the like that the bands are being released. But Sony has the rights, so we don't even publish the music.

The bands steeped in the of the good, old Gasolin'-mood. There is an energy without equal, " says Bo Ellegaard.
