California Gold long version

Marc Seaberg – California Gold album version

Size matters. If you like Marc’s seven which was posted here ages ago get the full twelve inches for a much more muscular experience. The 14:48 lp version from 1978 has long instrumental passages with twanging guitars and lots of wild west saloon ambiance, German style.

Sørøversangen

Sebastian – Sørøversangen

Sørøversangen which means the Pirate song is from the danish translation of The Treasure Island “Skatteøen” Written and composed by Sebastian. This particular song is not the official version but from a Demo LP from Sebastian, released in 1990. Though i find Sebastian to be one of the finest songwriters from our little kingdom, this LP stands even further out for me since a lot of the songs which are commonly known is presented on a much more primitive way. Many of them with synth and drummachines. There’s some really great finds on this album and i thank my friend Kim for finding it to me! I raise my hand in the air and sing out loud “15 mand på en død mands kiste. Hey hoo og en hel flaske rom!” meaning “15 men on a dead mans coffin. Hey hoo and bottle full of Rum”
