"Gas 5" was Gasolin's fifth album in five years and was released in October 1975. From the humble beginnings of their debut album they had developed into a confident arena rock band with this release. In hindsight, "Gas 5" may be considered to be their definitive album.


Roy Thomas Baker provided a big powerful "Led Zeppelin rock sound", while Wolfgang Käfer would provide the strings to the epic rock songs: "Rabalderstræde", "Fatherless Hill" and "Sct. Emitri". Wili Jönsson played the harpsichord on the latter song. The power-pop of "Kvinde min" and the reflective ballad of "Masser af success" shows a gentle side too.

"Gas 5" was the first Gasolin' album to include songs with English lyrics (if you do not include the albums that Gasolin' released only for the international market). From this album "Rabalderstræde" / "Kvinde min" and "Refrainet er frit" / "Good Time Charlie" were released as singles.

"Gas 5" was recorded at Rosenberg Studio in Copenhagen with Freddy Hansson as sound engineer. For the first time ever in Denmark an album was recorded with a 24-track mix board. That board was also used for the album cover. "Gas 5" was released on CD in 1987 with "Efter endnu en dag" (1976), but due to lack of space "Good Time Charlie" was omitted. It was remastered for CD in 1991 and is also included on "The Black Box" box set (2003).

"Gas 5" was released with English lyrics as "What a Lemon" in England and as "Gasolin' " in USA. It was also released in Spain in Danish with "Rabalderstræde" / "Sjagge" as single.
