There's A Kind Of Hush - Tulla uudelleen ei voi hetki tää
Taiska Sunday once more... Taiska recorded "Tulla uudelleen ei voi hetki tää" (This moment will not come back) in 1976. It was released on the B-side of our first ever Finnpick "Moi moi vain" and also on the album "Mombasa". Berit recorded this song in that same year, and I'll present also her version here if I ever get hold of it. The original song "There's A Kind Of Hush" was the collaboration of two renowned British songwriters Les Reed and Geoff Stephens. Stephens formed in 1966 The New Vaudeville Band, writing and recording songs in a 1920s musical style, best known for their Stephens-penned debut single "Winchester Cathedral". This "There's a Kind of Hush" was one of their later recordings and did not get much attention. But a little later, a cover version done by Herman's Hermits was a monster hit. But most probably Taiska's and Berit's versions were inspired by The Carpenters' rendition released in 1976.
