      Historical Notes

In early spring 1997, Håkan Almkvist, who Peter Lindahl had started to connect with through his dealings with the record label APM, got himself lost in the labyrinth too. From there on they had a bit of a partnership going between them.  The next ITL album was released in 1999 by Håkan’s newly established label TAP and was distributed world wide by Record Heaven. It was given the titlePeter and Håkan Walking on Clouds. (Tone art production). Because of the involvement of Håkan (who is known to have great experience of India) and as a result of an extensive journey which Peter and his wife made to the subcontinent in late 1997, Walking on Clouds may reflect some of the various atmospheres that belong to that part of the world. Peter wrote lyrics about, among other items, the hindu godesses Kali and Durga, about the Himalayas and the notorious yeti. They used quite a lot of sound effects on the album, most of them originating from Nepal and northern India though some came from elsewhere. For the most of it, Håkan and Peter were focused on the India element and generally on upbeat material. They allowed for an increase of vocals and tried to get in as many supplementary musicians as possible, as long as it enhanced the sound and the over-all feeling.
