Bo Hansson was a part of the progressive movement in the 70s, but his music was something else as an early explorer of electronics. He never really made any money out if his music and he passed away, poor and lonely. Rest in peace, Bo.

Bo Hansson did not release an overwhelming amount of music. However, in his beautiful yet reclusive career he jammed with Hendrix, co-led a successful duo, and released a few brilliant, eerie, and always inspired releases before returning to those dark places so well conveyed by his music. The world barely knew. Thank you, Bo, your music is wonderful.
