Even More Super Hits Of the Seventies ("Oh Susie")

Abstract [en]

Michael Shelley about the CD and its purpose: “Even More Super Hits of the Seventies” is the third in a series that sprang to life as I was looking for a special way to entice listeners to make a pledge to the station [WFMU] and to express my thanks to the many listeners who literally keep the station on the air with their direct financial support. Once again I approached some of my favorite music makers and asked them to create a recording just for us - to cover a song that went top 40 somewhere on Earth in the 1970s - the one rule was: no irony. Like the first two volumes, I was, and am, completely bowled over by the quality of the music I received and the obvious thought behind the creation of the recordings. The idea that this music simply wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for the good feelings that WFMU has engendered throughout the musical community is a powerful one, and it keeps returning to me. It is inspiring to know that so many musicians appreciate and support our free-form radio mission....It was the incredibly well crafted Power Pop recordings by David’s band The Merrymakers that first connected me to David’s musical abilities. From their base in Pitea, Sweden the band built a worldwide following (with a particularly rabid fanbase in Japan - where they’ve sold over 100,000 albums). David eventually went solo and has continued to experiment with different forms of music, but all with a trace of Pop in them."Written by Björn Håkanson & Tim Norell “Oh Susie” was a big hit in many parts of the world in 1979 for Sweden’s Secret Service. It was especially huge in Russia, where the band still tours to enthusiastic crowds.
