A Long Time Comin' - Liian monta päivää

Well, it's been a long time coming, but now meet Ann Christine (see earlier entry) again. She was most active musically in the mid-60's but made some records later, too. In 1969 she joined forces with Ulla & Tiina, who were a vocal duo that consisted of twins Ulla and Christina Rif. They recorded a single on whose B-side was this "Liian monta päivää" (Too many days). The song was not a success, nor was the A-side. The original was written and performed by Ellie Greenwich. Ellie was a famous songwriter who together with her husband and songwriting partner Jeff Barry wrote numerous hits for other artists. But she also released some records as a solo artist. This "A Long Time Comin'" was from the first ("Composes, Produces & Sings" in 1968) of her two albums.

Here's the pair:
