Scented Gardens of Mind:
This group from Namsos took their name from the famous Beatles song "Dear Prudence". Partly influenced by Bob Dylan, The Band, Jethro Tull and The Beatles their idea was to make a new kind of rural Norwegian rock with the unhip accordion as one of their main instruments (along with electric guitars, mandolin and recorder).
Their first album Tomorrow May Be Vanished (1972) was an uneven affair, but included some of the best tracks they ever wrote ("Going Through His Life" and the title track).
Drunk And Happy (1973) was a more united rural rock effort. No. 3 (1974) showed some signs of stagnation and their songs sounded rather dull this time around. At this point they gave up their international aspirations.
Their last studio album Takk Te Dokk (1975) was an improvement and now featured only Norwegian lyrics. As Prudence was known as a great live band, a double live album became a suitable epitaph.
In the final analysis, none of the Prudence albums are fully convincing but as they more or less invented "Trønder-rock", Prudence have an important position in Norwegian rock history. Åge Aleksandersen and Terje Tysland later became highly successful solo artists.
