    As you may know, last.fm made a deal with WEA. Being with Warner's means also a whole lotta old finnish schlager is now available and I suppose there's going to be more! So far I've tagged "Best of"-compilations and also check out my general tag . There's finnish schlager from the 30s to today. I'll be tagging more finnish music as I'll have time to browse the catalogues. Tags a still a bit messy, I hope this will be arranged in the future.

    Happy listening to all you friends with curiosity and /or eclectic taste!

    Finnish 70s schlager is already good on itself, but now there's this Ville Leinonen guy who has not only revived it on his solo projects but actually has just made an album full of cover versions of these kitchy 70s "classics". Raul Reiman and Chrisse Johansson totally rule as writer/composers! Listening to Ville's sleazy versions makes you wanna grow a moustache. How cool is that!

    Originals were of course recorded by legendary Katri Helena, Marion Rung, Markku Aro, Juhamatti, Eini, Tapani Kansa... Some of them are covers from 60/70s international hits, mainly italian, spanish and french.
