Copper Coloured Years - Jäi talo tyhjilleen
Hector did not usually do any covers, but this "Jäi talo tyhjilleen" (The house was left empty) is one rare example of those. It was released as a single in 1970, but was not successful chartwise. The Finnish lyrics were, of course, done by Hector himself. The original song was called "Copper Coloured Years". It was performed by British harmony pop group West Coast Consortium. The band released only two singles under that name, and the rest were released as Consortium. They had one minor hit under the latter name, the Baroque -style "All the Love in the World", which you can hear here. Today's finnpick was composed by the band's lead guitarist Geoff Simpson.
