«Viggo called in September 2017, asking if we would be interested in releasing Våkenatt by Bridges. Like other fans of a-ha, I had heard about this almost mythical album, in some circles nicknamed «the great lost a-ha album». It’s not only an essential part of Norwegian music history, as the missing link between Bridges and a-ha; as I listened to the record, I discovered that it’s a masterpiece, which still feels fresh and relevant today.
You can hear sketches of «Scoundrel Days» and parts of «Soft Rain of April», and even though Morten Harket did not participate in the record, we know he was a big fan of Bridges at that time. This is the sound of an extremely talented, dedicated and fast developing band, close to their creative peak. A timeless product. We are proud to make this the first release on Rockheim Musical Archives.»
