 The Hootenanny Singers -Manga Ansikten/Many Faces Released Late 1966

 

There you go a translation in the actual album title.

This is Bjorn's Hootenanny Singers at their apex of their attempts to expand their horizons. Still it must be said , that some observers of the Hootz dont care much for their English material.

The cover features two nearly identical photos of the boyz, one serious , one relaxed.
The songs on side one are in Swedish and on
side two are in English. The English titles include "Through Darkness Light"
(written and produced by Manfred Mann's Mike 'D'Abo) ,"Just The Way That You Are" , "The Long Black Veil" as well as two more famous songs-"Baby, those Are The Rules" and Benny Andersson's -"Sunny Girl".

This album includes Björn's chauvinistic but, perhaps
tongue in cheek pop song called "Baby Those Are The Rules". Like lots of Hootz records "...Rules" features a lot of harmonica. The lyrics on "Baby ..." were written by American producer Sandy Alexander.

This album also has a version of Benny's song
"Sunny Girl" as well as Benny's first appearence playing together on record with Björn on the song "Blomman"(The Flower). Benny's organ takes over the record on "Blomman". One of the best of the remaining songs on the album,
was Bjorn's composition-"In Thoughts of You".

MANY FACES and it's predecessor INTERNATIONAL are probably the two most important Hootz albums but strangely they have not been chosen to be rereleased on CD.

Two singles were released from Manga Ansikten MAny Faces

Baby, Those Are The Rules/Through Darkness Light late /66

Blomman/En Man Och En Kvinna early /67
