Olli Ahvenlahti is a Finnish pianist, composer and conductor, born in Helsinki, Finland in 1949.
The Poet was originally released on Love Records in Finland in 1976 and is now hard to find and expensive to acquire. The most sought after track, Grandma’s Rocking Chair, became very popular with dancers in the early 90s London acid/jazz scene due to its pace and percussion, and has appeared on many compilations since.
This Mr Bongo re-issue is packaged in their new and improved heavyweight card sleeves, pressed on high quality vinyl, with label designs and artwork as per the original release.
