ABBA - Hova's Vittne
(unofficial NM 475:-)

At last! A superb limited edition reproduction of one of the two 'Holy grails' of Abba collecting. The original of this unreleased track on 12" was given away in no more than 200 copies in 1981 at the 50th birthday party of Abba's producer Stikkan Anderson. The near unfindable original can sell for up to 30-40,000 Sek in superb condition and is missing in almost all serious Abba collections.

There is no attempt to fool collectors into believing this is an original copy, as can be seen by the 'collectors re-issue' text on the back sleeve and the different shade of red to the original vinyl.
Broberg, Robban - Franska Naturen
(Triola Td-175 Swe-63 EX 275:-)

Robert Karl Oskar Broberg, allas vår Robban, hade en väldigt lång och gränslöst händelserik karriär som för all del också var sporadisk och ojämn i sin intensiva jakt på nya upptåg i pendlandet mellan allvar och lek.

Det här är hans tredje singel; b/w "Knäppen".
Di Leva - Om Jag Vill
Stranded REK 038 Swe-83 EX 225:-)

Sven Thomas Magnusson föddes 1963 i Gävle. När han var 14 år bytte han namn Di Leva, inspirerad av sin mors italienska flicknamn.

"Om jag Vill / Up to the Mountain" var Di Leva's tredje singel och den enda på Stranded Records.
Di Leva - The Single Man
(Adventure ADVSP-106 Swe-82 VG+ 300:-)

Sven Thomas Magnusson föddes 1963 i Gävle. När han var 14 år bytte han namn Di Leva, inspirerad av sin mors italienska flicknamn.

Di Leva startade sin karriär med bandet Pillisnorks, med vilket EP:n 4 VISITORS blev hans skivdebut 1 januari 1980. Hösten 1981 fick han skivkontrakt som soloartist och året därpå kom debutalbumet, "Marginal Cirkus", som släpptes endast i 1500 exemplar.

Di Leva's andra singel; b/w "Appear of Need". Omslaget är lite nött med ringwear - vinyl är graderad EX.
Europe - Open Your Heart
(Hot HOTS-8417 Swe-84 VG+ 175:-)

Originally a progressive rock group, Europe didn't achieve success until they reworked their sound into bombastic yet melodic pop-metal. The band won a national talent contest in the early '80s, which led to a record contract with Hot Records. After releasing two albums in Sweden, they landed an international deal with Epic Records to pursue a successful career in the glam/hair metal genre.

Original Swedish pressing; b/w "Wings of Tomorrow".
Fältskog, Agnetha - Zigenarvän
(Cupol CS-260 Swe-69 VG+ 375:-)

Although she had made a name for herself as a solo artist in Sweden, Agnetha Fältskog will always be best known as one-fourth of ABBA, one of the most commercially successful and internationally beloved pop acts of all time.

Rare original swedish single; b/w "Som en Vind kom Du till Mej". Side 1 has a small inaudible mark and a piece of tape on the label; otherwise the set is graded VG+.
Gyllene Tider - Flickorna på TV2
(Parlophone 7C 006-35708 Swe-79 VG+ 175:-)

During a brief period of fame in the early '80s, Gyllene Tider managed to stir up hysteria among Swedish teens, and their first two albums sold extremely well; but the band is now mainly remembered for bringing Per Gessle into the spotlight for the first time.

Rare 1979 Swedish YELLOW VINYL single, b/w "Himmel No 7", die-cut picture sleeve.
Heavy Load - Metal Conquest
(Thunderload TMP-811 Swe-81 VG+ 475:-)

Heavy Load formed in 1976 as a trio by the brothers Ragne and Styrbjörn Wahlquist. In 1977, they recorded their debut album, "Full Speed At High Level", which was released in 1978, but the record company, Heavy Sound Records, went bankrupt and the Wahlquist brothers formed their own label, Thunderload Records.

Thematically, "Metal Conquest" might not stray far from their 1978 debut, but in terms of its sheer muscle, the EP is a far better representative of the Swedish veterans' enduring legacy upon the scene to follow them. Meatier guitars, manlier vocals, and a firmer grasp of how to drive home a vocal chorus hook transported this material away from the Judas Priest and Black Sabbath comparisons of the debut towards the realm of molten girth that characterized Anvil, Manilla Road, Manowar and the almighty Thor during the dawn of the 80s.

Original Swedish pressing complete with poster. The sleeve shows some minor wear; the vinyl is graded EX.
Hellacopters - Killing Allan
(Psychout PSYCH-001 Swe-02 EX 200:-)

What the MC5 and Stooges were to the '60s, what Sonic's Rendezvous Band and Radio Birdman were to the '70s, and what the Celibate Rifles were to the '80s -- that's what Sweden's Hellacopters were to the '90s. Young, strapping, and rocking out to almost cartoon-like proportions, the Hellacopters have made quite a name for themselves in Europe and Australia. And a deal with Sub Pop had them targeting the States.

Unofficial reissue of their first single.

Roxette - Neverending Love (Euro Mix)
(EMI 1362486 Swe-86 VG+ 275:-)

Swedish pop duo Roxette picked up where Abba left off, providing charmingly accented and instantly forgettable dance tunes for rafts of pre-teens in the late '80s. They had a catchy hook up each sleeve, and their boy/girl vocals warmed the mix considerably.

Original Swedish pressing. The sleeve shows minor storage wear - the vinyl is graded EX.
Shanes / Moonlighters - Live
(Columbia SEGS-138 Swe-65 VG+ 175:-)

The Shanes had about a dozen Top Ten hits in their native Sweden between 1964 and 1967, but were absolutely unknown to listeners who spoke English as their first language. Not that the group deserved any better.

The Moonlighters were a pop-band from Stockholm, featuring Lasse Holm who later became a leading figure in Swedish schlager industry.

Original Swedish EP; containing "Marshall Clayton", "Roadrunner", "A Shot of Rhythm and Blues" and "I can't Stand It".
Tages - I should be Glad
(Platina PA-103 Swe-65 VG+ 175:-)

The Tages were without a doubt, the best Swedish band of the '60s and one of the best '60s rock acts of any sort from a non-English speaking country. Although the group's first recordings were pretty weak Merseybeat derivations, in the mid-'60s they developed a tough, mod-influenced sound that echoed the Who and the Kinks and recorded quite a few originals, making the Swedish Top Ten over a dozen times in all.

Original Swedish single; containing "I Should be Glad", b/w "I Cry".
Tant Strul - Pappas Tant
(MNW 61s Swe-80 EX 175:-)

Zettlers - Skinnie Minnie
(Garageland BF-601 Swe-83 EX 175:-)

The Zettlers bildades på Sandbacka i Umeå, där Rolf "Roffa" Asplund, Leif "Leffa" Eriksson och Rune Ulfhielm bodde grannar. Namnet hittade man i ett svensk-engelskt lexikon, där Settlers förklarades som "nybyggare, dråpslag eller aptitsup". Inför en tidig spelning stavade en arrangör namnet med "Z" på affischen, och det fastnade. Våren 1962 vann bandet en "talangparad" i Örnsköldsvik och kunde då kalla sig Norrlandsmästare.

Återutgåva av deras tredje och sista singel; b/w "Beautiful Delilah"
