Ladygirls

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.
