Guitar legend Järvinen’s solo debut from 1974 gets a proper reissue finally. The artwork has been expanded to gatefold format and the package also contains liner notes by Jaakko Riihimaa…..~


In the suction of Ganes film directed by JP Siil, the market is saturated with many Hurriganes recordings. The latest shows have been the solos of Albert Järvinen, Cisse Häkkinen and Ile Kallio. 
In addition to revealing their musical preferences, Ride On (1974), Teendreams (1976) and Irock (1977) testify that the recordings of the best bands do not give any guarantees about the level of their solo work. Thus, Järvinen, Häkkinen and Kallio’s own Hurriganes-era vistas are mildly uneven. 
Albert Järvinen’s sixth anniversary before the success of Roadrunner’s Entire Ride On had a significant impact on the album’s collaboration with Pave Maijane. Järvinen, though, managed the line sovereignly through rock'n'roll and blues merit, but without Maijane’s interpretation of Teenage Nervous Breakdown and the Do not Be Cruel style, the otherwise fragmented album would have remained a bit cheaper debut. Especially when the number of instrumental tracks on the album has been left with Heikki Virtanen and Reiska Laine in the “liberty” of the hopeless Freeze-Like Crying-Playing. Cisse Häkkinen’s first solo album provided authentic Perennial teenagers. The hundred percent cover album by Häkkinen, who is almost like a fox-like Donny Osmond, is a silky American Graffit with a narrow and henna-like voice. While singing in Cliff Richard’s Livin ‘Doll, Neil Sedaka, Dion & The Belmonts and Phil Spector, Cisse feels like a rock'n'roll rather than a small Lasse Liemola. 
As with Teendreams, Ile Kallio’s solo debut is also mostly based on the curiosity value of the lowering of the recording threshold. Irock Kallio, who is known for his old host, Make Luukkanen and Pen Lee & Co, has played the most popular and lighter on Albert Lake as a guitarist. The recordings of the album also sound like James Taylor, Spirit and The Beatles, with the exception of boring exercises whose dullness, Kallio’s modest song just underlines. Because of his impetuosity and blimp, Irock feels nothing but rock and the original Hurriganes guitarist….by… Pertti Ojala…~



Pekka “Albert” Johannes Järvinen (25 October 1950 – 24 March 1991) was a Finnish guitarist. He is best known as the guitarist of the Finnish rock band Hurriganes. He got his stage-name Albert from one of his idols, blues guitarist Albert King. 

Career 
Pekka “Albert” Järvinen was born in the municipality of Iitti in south-east Finland, where he at the age of eight started playing the acoustic guitar. He initially studied classical guitar under the leadership of Ivan Putilin. Järvinen received his first electric guitar, a Gretsch, in 1965. From there he went on to play in numerous bands, including the blues band Harp and the rock band Poison. When Järvinen, in May 1972, replaced Ile Kallio as the lead guitarist of Hurriganes, he was already a seasoned musician. He had toured with the singer Kristian and been a key member of Eero Raittinen’s band Kalevala. His track record as a studio guitarist was, considering his age, extensive. 

In 1975 Järvinen left the Hurriganes to play with the Finnish musician Rock-Jerry, who was doing a comeback. Rumor had it that Remu Aaltonen had showed Järvinen the door as a result of a drinking problem that was interfering with his stage performance. Later the same year Järvinen would challenge Hurriganes’ leadership position by establishing a blues rock band called the Royals. Playing Cream covers, Royals had a more intellectual image. Järvinen would however have to admit, that while he had the talent, he lacked Remu’s charisma. Royals would never form a serious challenge to Hurriganes. As this band split in 1979, Järvinen planned to continue his career in England. Elvis Costello among numerous others wanted him as a lead guitarist. This British connection was fueled by Nick Lowe, who had visited Finland to record Järvinens guitar solos. Järvinen however returned to Finland to play with Dave Lindholm before rejoining Hurriganes in 1979. This engagement would last two years during which the band would record two albums. 

In 1981 Järvinen joined the Sleepy Sleepers but was sacked due to heavy drinking. Together with Sleepy Sleepers former drummer Harri Lemola Järvinen formed a new band The Quips which stayed together only for a year. In 1984 Järvinen published a maxi-single Countdown under the name of Albert Järvinen Band. The single was produced and also sung by Lemmy Kilmister from the British band Motörhead. In the middle of the 1980s Järvinen kept a low profile perfecting his skills. At the latter half of the decade, he played with various artist and recorded a solo album Braindamage – Or Still Alive together with Albert King and William Clarke. 

Death 
Järvinen died during a concert trip in London, UK, in the Spring of 1991, aged 40. The official cause of death was myocardial infarction. No illegal drugs were found in his body. Järvinen is buried in Honkanummi cemetery in Vantaa...~
