Far Far Away - Tie kauemmas vei
Danny recorded "Tie kauemmas vei" (The road took me farther away) in 1976 and it was released only as a track on a compilation album. The song was arranged by Veikko Samuli and the Finnish yrics were written by Pertsa Reponen. The original song "Far Far Away" was a big hit for Slade in 1974. It appeared on the album "Slade in Flame" and as a single it peaked at number 2 in the UK. The single was released to promote their upcoming film, also titled "Slade in Flame". There's also a newer Finnish version performed by group Miljoonasade as "Tie tiettömään". You can hear it, here.
