flickorna i småland  performed by  delta rythm boys  (195?)
Composed by trad
Arranged by delta rythm boys
From: Sweden
Mood: jazzy, uplifting, quirky
Recommended by olli [profile] on Monday 15th March 2004

apparently the delta rythm boys were quite big in sweden in the late fifties, something wich eventually led to them recording this quirky little song. it's a jazzy take on an old swedish folk song, including the swedish lyrics. however, the vocalists didn't speak the language at the time of the recording, so the result turned out to be remarkably strange. still, it´s a fantastic song, and even if you don't understand swedish (well, most people don't) i think you'll appreciate this. it's pretty tough to come by unless you happen live next to a swedish thrift store, but it´s well worth hunting down. i first heard it on the in-film soundtrack to the film "kitchen stories"(salmer fra kjøkkenet) by bent hamer.

i don´t think there's a soundtrack cd out, but the complete song plays during the end credits, and can easily be ripped. (the film is well worth seeing too, if you can stand subtitles, i recommend ordering it)

  29 May 08 ·Timpsi: Delta Rythm Boys also had a CD in the Finnish "20 suosikkia" ('20 favourites') series, and "Flickorna i Småland" can be found on it too. Other interesting songs on the album are a couple of Finnish language songs, and rare English versions of Finnish classics, such as "Rosvo-Roope" ('Raunchy Ropey'), and "Isoisän olkihattu" ('Grandpa's Strawhat'). At the time of recording the CD, the Boys received some Finnish language schooling from a Harmony Sisters member.

The CD is most definitely out of print already, but is available at several Finnish public libraries.
