The Girls Want The Boys! Sweden’s Beat Girls 1966-1970

Now it’s the turn of Sweden.

This smörgåsbord of Swedish she-pop opens with early solo sides by the lead singers of the nation’s greatest pop music export, ABBA: Agnetha Fältskog with ‘Ge Dej Till Tåls’ (a highlight of her second album) and Anni-Frid Lyngstad with ‘Så Synd Du Måste Gå’ (a song popularised by Françoise Hardy as ‘Comment Te Dire Adieu’). Other featured well-known names include national treasure Lill-Babs with her cover of Dusty Springfield’s ‘Little By Little’ and chart star Mona Wessman with a version of ‘Music To Watch Girls By’.

It wasn’t all cover versions in mid-60s Sweden. Dig, for example, Eleanor Bodel’s title track, ‘Don’t’ by cult favourite Doris (who also appears as lead vocalist of the group Plums), au pair duo Bella & Me’s groovy ‘Help Me Break This Habit’ and Britt Bergström’s Ivy League-penned ‘You Really Have Started Something’. Cherry-picked tracks by the Plommons and cover stars MAK Les Soeurs illustrate the country also produced its fair share of all-girl groups.

12-track LP format.

LP version is pressed on snow white 180g vinyl in heavy duty sleeve, with inner bag featuring a 4,000-word track commentary and a plethora of superb photos.
