The influence of groundbreaking artists from Britain and the USA such as The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane et al spread far and wide. In Denmark, as in many other European countries, the cries of change were made by students, radicals and hippies to a backdrop of emerging "underground" bands who were fusing the musical influences of psychedelia, jazz, blues, folk. From this upheaval came a succession of highly imaginative Danish groups who recorded a wonderful series of highly imaginative and creative albums.

The diversity and range of the bands heralding from a small country was impressive in its excellence. Some acts such as The Savage Rose, Burnin' Red Ivanhoe, Midnight Sun, and Day Of Phoenix enjoyed some degree of success outside their native land whilst others remained destined to have a Scandinavian following. The common thread among all of these artists was an emphasis on experimentation and a desire to push the perceived musical boundaries.

The 3CD collection "Living On The Hill" is the music of the Danish counterculture and serves as a fine celebration of a creative period when rock music was evolving into a means of social change throughout Europe.
