Not Hawking Shoes
:: Tusen Och En Natt ::
A while back, I put up a flexi by Gunnar Wiklund where he sang in German about how you should buy certain ladies' shoes. I think I misidentified him as being Norwegian, so along with corrections about that, I received some comments that I really should hear his other stuff. So I've kept an eye out for his stuff, and just recently came across this -- a 1966 single in his native Swedish. I've been listening to a lot of Bob Hund and Totalt Jävla Mörker, bands that sing in the same native tongue and who I am sure were heavily influenced by Gunnar, so this is a natural choice for me right now.
I was going to put up the whole 45, but frankly this record isn't in nearly as good a shape as the cover is. So you get the one track that played relatively nicely, a slightly overmoody reading of "Strangers In The Night." He's smoother than a lutefisk milkshake, and when you are that smooth, you get your own plane. Check it.
