Record Store Day 2018
Saturday 21 April
This year we have 2 fabulous vinyl records being released for Record Store Day.
First up we have this wonderful album from Agnetha which is being released on mint green vinyl !
The album was recorded in the same period as her bandmate Anni-Frid Lyngstad made her Swedish number one album Frida ensam - and both were recorded between sessions and a very busy promotion schedule for the ABBA albums Waterloo and ABBA.
Elva Kvinnor I Ett Hus was originally slated for release in 1973 but following Agnetha's pregnancy that year and later the unexpected success with ABBA it was postponed and not released until late 1975. By then, four years had passed since the release of her last Swedish solo-album, När en vacker tanke blir en sång.
Agnetha composed all but one of the songs herself with lyrics by Swedish writer, journalist and lyricist Bosse Carlgren. The only exception was the Swedish version of the ABBA song "S.O.S." which was written by Benny Andersson, Stig Anderson and Agnetha's husband at the time, Björn Ulvaeus. Agnetha's record company Cupol insisted on including a Swedish version of an ABBA song to increase album sales.
Plus we have this awesome Limited Edition 7" splatter vinyl of Summer Night City !
Limited to 2000 copies.
