Music from Norway: Dance with a Stranger

I first came across this excellent Norwegian band when my band worked with them at a theme park near Stavanger in Norway when we were touring over there back in the 80’s. I was struck by how much like Joe Cocker the singer sounded. In fact, perhaps a cross between Joe and Italian singer Zucchero. When you listen to the fretless bass playing, one is also reminded of Pino Palladino’s work on Paul Young’s ‘No Parlez’ album (Not the Mike and the mechanics Paul Young, the other one!)  I was always puzzled as to why this band didn’t achieve greater acclaim outside their native land. They broke up in the mid-90’s but occasionally re-form for reunion shows. This is ‘Everyone needs a friend’ – listen to the lovely bass work!
