Kasper Winding: Kick (1980)

Finally! It all started with this Danish album, plus the Sneakers debut album from the same year, 1980. 32 years later, in January of 2012, I finally managed to score a near-mint copy off a German eBay seller to almost complete the collection of Danish music I came to love way back then.

I already had the English version of this LP, which I had (accidentally) bought ages ago at some flea market, but it just didn’t compare to the original.

This year, I plan on getting this LP, the two Buzstop and the first V6 LPs (all of which were never released on CD) ripped and transferred to lossless FLAC by someone with a high-end rig, someone I have already located through Germany’s biggest audiophile forum.

Well, here it is then, the last one that was still missing from my (Danish pop/rock) collection.
Yippee ki-yay!

Note: The inside scans are my own, the cover I downloaded and fixed up, somewhat. You might also be interested in my series (it’s only one post as of now) on Danish music that I have been working on over  in the living.with.music section of my site, starting with the initial post entitled “A musical life in Denmark of the 1970s, 80s and 90s“.
