Boogie Woogie Dancing Shoes - Sata kesää, tuhat yötä

We end this mini-series of Paula Koivuniemi with the record "Sata kesää, tuhat yötä" (Hundred summers, thousend nights), released in 1981. This driving disco tune re-vitalized her declining career at the time and became one of her greatest hits. The original song was called "Boogie woogie dancing shoes" and was performed by Claudja Barry. Claudja was born in Jamaica, raised in Toronto and later based in Germany. Prior to her solo career, Claudja Barry was briefly a member of Boney M (from 1975 to 1976). The "Boogie Woogie Dancin' Shoes" was taken from her album "I Wanna Be Loved By You", released in 1978. As a single, it became a major hit in Canada and Europe. The song was the product of Lollipop, a German disco label, formed by producer Jürgen S. Korduletsch for his own productions and for his wife - Claudja Barry.
