Sale price160,00 kr


Tobben & Ero was a Norwegian music duo from Tromsø and consisted of Torbjørn Willassen and Jan Ero Olsen. They are often referred to as Norway's answer to Simon & Garfunkel. The duo looked to old masters to find texts they could set melodies to, and created music history with a bunch of records that are all considered to be Norwegian classics. Tobben and Ero wanted, like The Pussycats, to become pop stars in Sweden and traveled in 1969 to Stockholm. Coincidences meant that they were backed by Elton John on Swedish television and that Cornelis Vreeswijk became one of their big fans. They debuted with the album Fordums frukter, friske frø in 1972, an album that has already been out on CD. Their third album was called Ballade i bakgården and was released in 1974.
