Blond - Blond 1969
Blond were probably the most notable of that wing of the genre. First off, they morphed from one of the more popular Swedish Beat groups of the early-mid sixties (Tages) and second, they tried to make a dent in the English speaking market with their debut album Lilac Years, with the hopes of taking their message at least to the UK.
The album was released very briefly in the U.S. by Fontana with a nondescript cover and just the words Blond across the top. But sadly, it didn’t happen and Blond more or less faded from sight around the end of 1970. But in 1969 there were hopes, and the track “I Pick Up The Bus”, is one of the many shining examples of a band that has only been re-discovered by way of reissue in Europe in recent years.
