Lillebjørn Nilsen´s breakthrough

The album Portrett is considered to be Lillebjørn Nilsen’s big breakthrough. This is largely due to giant hits like "Barn av regnbuen", "Gategutt", "Alle duene" and "Regnet er en venn". Nilsen has taken inspiration from Norwegian folk songs and American blue grass, and thematically this album is one of his most political. One of the bonus tracks is a live version of "Alle duene", where Nilsen dedicates the song to the occupiers of the Rønneberg house in Ålesund, 1973. Nilsen was very involved in the matter and sent a telegram to the occupiers. The telegram is pictured in the CD-book. The same year Portrett was re-released, two of Nilsen’s other albums were reissued on CD: Tilbake (1971) and Byen med det store hjertet (1975). The three albums were digitally processed and greatly improved, and added 5 extra tracks each that were not included on the original LP releases.
