Cracklin' Rosie - Aikansa kutakin
Kisu recorded "Aikansa kutakin" (There's a time for everything) in 1971 for his album "Sinulle". It was not released as a single, although the original song was quite popular in Finland. The Finnish lyrics for this one were made by Chrisse Johansson. The original was from the composing pen of Neil Diamond and he also had a big hit with the song. "Cracklin' Rosie" was Diamond's first American number 1 hit. The single version released in 1970 was in mono, while the album version (from "Tap Root Manuscript") was in stereo. We present here the album version. You can see Neil perform the song, here.
