It was also available in a premium edition originally , to the best of my memory. I was a dealer for Audio Source, who I believe imported them. Anyway I use to carry them.

I have a copy that is "supposedly" an original. On the back of the album it says:
"Manufactured and Distributed by AudioSource"
It also says:
"Manufactured under license from Proprius Musik AB, Sweden. Prepared for release by Norman Olson and Jeffrey Weber. Half-speed mastering by Jack Hunt (JVC Cutting Center)"
The label on the LP is colored half orange and half white and all the liner notes are written in Swedish.
Would this be an original or a re-issue?
To Gdupont - what you have is the original issue "premium" version.
To Grimace - You're right - it is an excellent live recording of a slightly above average performance. More of a fun virtual reality experience than a great moment in music. That being said, there is some very good Scandinavian jazz out there.
And to Stanwal - I hope you kept one of every lp they distributed! A great catalog, whoever was behind Audiosource had a great ear. Whenever I see an LP with an Audiosource sticker on the back I buy it.
I'm assuming you're referring to the Audiosource edition similar to Gdupont's above. That one generally goes for around $40 on Ebay if mint. The monotone orange label one that Tongnam mentioned is the more expensive - going for $70 or so.
Both of them can randomly sell for much more on Ebay, though, depending on how crazy two or more bidders are feeling. I've seen them both go for over $100 - but that's happening less now with the economy fading.
