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.

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".

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.
