A great surprise today at one of our local charity shops. Jul met Yngve Stoor on Lani records 1971 Sweden. Great guitars and amazing Hawaiian songs with Scandinavian accent. Nice insert and a really catchy cover. All and all a sweet deal for 1 euro.

Latest intentional addition: The Invitations R.S.V.P (Liberty, 1959)

Fell in love with their sound by happenstance when looking up various covers of Nani Waimea, which they absolutely blow out of the water! (Helped handily by the arrangements and orchestra of Russ Garcia) It's in near perfect condition. The only thing that could be better is if it were the stereo release!

Thanks for the link! Nice stuff indeed, these guys really nail those Four Freshman harmonies.
