Reel Around Me

Soda Fountain Rag è Ragnhild Hogstad Jordahl. Nel 2006 pubblica un cdr autoprodotto che fa innamorare molti, uno tra i tanti (ma uno speciale) è Salvatore, curatore di, (purtroppo ferma da fin troppo tempo) che di lei scriveva "Se per Ragnhild non esitiamo a parlare di Genio è perché le sue canzoni istantaneamente orecchiabili possiedono un doppio fondo, una qualità avvolgente e addirittura tenebrosa che sovrappone immagini di alba e tramonto in mezzo alla solitudine di Bergen". Sono proprio le canzoni vecchissime (del 2006) e vecchie (2007!) che finiscono su Reel Around Me, per la prima volta suonate dal vivo in studio, insieme ad Anders Kaasen e Nickolai Nilsen.
Il come e il perchè di questo disco sono in questo brevissimo racconto.
