Per un amore - Rakkauden tähden
Lea Valonen recorded only one single. "Rakkauden tähden" (For love) was released in 1968 under her first name Lea. The arranger was Aarno Raninen and the lyrics were maid by Sauvo Puhtila. I'm sorry but I know nothing about Lea. This single went nowwhere and she quit recording. The original song came from Italy. It was called "Per un amore" (For love) and it was a big Italian hit for a singer named Vibeke. Well I don't know anything about her, either. But both of these versions of unknown girls are well worth listen to.
