Overlooked Swedish minor disco production from 1978, who knows why only released in Sweden and in Italy on the mysterious Pacha label. Therefore warmly recommended of course, yet another acknowledgement – shouldn’t be that taken for granted already – that Swedes definitely knew their shit in the 70s when it came to production.
You couldn’t really ask for any better here, as the full-on disco package unrolls: pumping synth-driven beat, an orchestra with strings and winds sections, highly dramatic female love chanting and choruses, not to mention the evil filtering effects + bubbling synth work…and we’re speaking almost 4:40 of pure pleasure here….why in the world this never got the 12″ treatment is just a mystery!

När Jag Ser Dig

Yet another 10 ¢ record saved from the bin.

Ok, it’s far from being in the top of its league (i.e. the 80s-mawkish-romantico-italo-synthpop genre) but it earns extra points because it’s sung in Swedish (?), and it sounds really exotic to my ears. fvrsvzrev68176816147313665335

Filippa – Visioner Av Dig (1985)

Anyway, if you’re into that kind of retro-italo-romantico-eighties sound, I must definitely recommend you the new Sally Shapiro album: My Guilty Pleasure and Cloetta Paris’ Secret Eyes. It’s exactly what you’re looking for, and they’re both Swedish too.
