VA - Festligt! Swedish Grooves, Funk & Disco 1974-1981




Whel, here his a mixtape I made some funk & disco from Sweden 1974-81, a couple of tracks are just some kind of folky groove (or just groovy) or AOR. The disco scene were rather popular in Sweden back in the days, and many established swedish artists made a disco track or two (of course), sadly many were more fun than actually great in a international perspective. And, there wasn't that many swedish quality disco LP's out there either (I didn't include Abba in the sense), most of them were (today) obscure singles. Some of the tracks on this tape are actually really great (and groovy), but some of those artists swedish people has some kind of "relation" to, so I guess some of the tunes on this tape actually sounds better in a foreigner's ear. Groovy!
