Press Release: single and album

Press release for Sound of Music’s new single Blue Magic Woman / A Pretty Lovesong and upcoming, self-titled debut album, Sound Of Music.

Notice that the cover for their album shown in the press release is not the same as the one released. All of the pictures, except for the picture of the group, have been changed.

The press release includes the dates for their upcoming tour.

The text reads:

Sound Of Music blev kända för den stora allmänheten i melodifestivalen med låten “Eldorado”. Inför sommarturnen släpper vi nu en fullmatad LP. Att välja en singel från en helgjuten LP är svårt, valet förr till slut på “Blue Magic Woman” och “A Pretty Love Song”. Den senare är bedövande vacker och luftig, den förra mystisk och skrämmande. “Peek-A-Boo”, “West Indies Night” och “Listen To The Radio” har alla ett infernaliskt driv och puls som balanseras av “One More Lonely Night”s lättare pop-puls. En ny engelsk version av “Eldorado” och “Self Erection”, skivans tyngsta spår, följs av “Dazzle Light”, LP’ns jätteballad. En LP utan svaga punkter!

Which translates into:

Sound Of Music became known to the general public through the Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Eldorado”. Ahead of the summer tour, we are now releasing a fully-loaded LP. Choosing a single from a seamless LP is difficult, in the end “Blue Magic Woman” and “A Pretty Love Song” were chosen. The latter is stunningly beautiful and airy, the former mysterious and frightening. “Peek-A-Boo,” “West Indies Night” and “Listen To The Radio” all have an infernal power and pulse that is balanced by the “One More Lonely Night” s lighter pop pulse. A new English version of “Eldorado” and “Self Erection”, the disc’s heaviest track, is followed by “Dazzle Light”, the LP’s mega ballad. An LP with no weak points!

“Efter sommarens succeturné släpper nu Sound Of Music en av turnéns populäraste låtar på singel. På “Summer Sensation” visar Sound Of Music en tuffare sida. Håll öronen öppna för ett fränare och uppkäftigare Sound Of Music.

Press Release: Once Again

Press release for Sound Of Music’s single Once Again.

In Swedish:

“Sound Of Music, bestående av Peter Grönvall, Nanne Nordqvist och Angelique Widengren, når nya höjder med sin nya låt “Once Again”. Det är en lugn men mäktig låt med en produktion och ett sound som vi inte är bortskämda med! För att detta sound of produktion verkligen ska komma till sin rätt har vi tagit fram en alldeles speciell singel i 12″-format endast för Dig som sänder radioprogram. Ljudet är ännu bättre på denna singel, men mixen, längden m m är precis som på den “vanliga” 7″-singeln.
Sound Of Music, som vann de yngre jurymedlemmarnas röster i årets svenska uttagning till Melodifestivalen, följer upp succén “Alexandra” med “Once Again” – ytterligare ett smakprov från den nya LP:n som kommer i höst. Gruppen turnerar också i sommar. De inleder sommarturnén i Jönsele på Midsommarafton, den 19 juni.”

Which translates to:

“Sound Of Music, consisting of Peter Grönvall, Nanne Nordqvist and Angelique Widengren, reaches new heights with their new song “Once Again”. It is a quiet but powerful song with a production and a sound that we are not spoiled with! For that sound and production to really come into its own, we have developed a special single in 12″ format only for you who broadcast radio. The sound is even better on this single, but the mix, length etc are just like the “regular” 7″ single.
Sound Of Music, who won the young jury members’ votes in this year’s Swedish selection for the Eurovision Song Contest, follow up their hit “Alexandra” with “Once Again” – another taster from the new LP coming this fall. The group also tours this summer. They start off their summer tour in Jönsele on Midsummer Eve, June 19.”

Odd pieces: Back Where We Belong / Back Where We Belong 7″

Sound Of Music
ALPHA RECORDS – ONESIN 074
1987

Side B: Back Where We Belong
Side B: Back Where We Belong

Sometimes when records are manufactured in the factory, things can go wrong. This record is the Magic Night 7″ single, but with two B-sides according to the stickers, and no A-side.

It’s only the stickers that are wrong, the wrongly marked A-side does play Magic Night and not Back Where We Belong.

Odd pieces: Sound Of Music II test press

Again, in the factory, before the actual print of a record is started there are test pressing made.

This is the test press for Sound Of Music’s second album, II. The main difference is the color of the vinyl which when held up to the light is not black, but more purple and seem half transparent.
