Kind of surprised I hadn’t posted this already. Man far inte va’ dum was the first GBG Sound track I heard on Swedish radio in 1978/79 and remains my favorite. I guess it’s cause it brings back sweet memories from the days in front of the radio absorbing the new phenomena. It’s also one of the few GBG Sound tracks that’s a bit more melancholic. Rik man, fattig man is their weakest track I think which doesn’t say much since it’s still great. Take note of the outstanding production, especially on Man far…

    Excellent pick, but a bit of a let down that you didn’t scan all sleeve versions for the post.

    This is just FANTASTIC. They weren’t only pioneers of punk and D.I.Y. on the east coast, but also an excellent punk rock band, probably one of the best in europe. Thanks!

    By the way, it’s been so many years since last time I gave this a spin that I had almost forgot how good the b-side is. And apparently I’ve only kept this sleeve version as well as I couldn’t find the other in my collection either. Guss I sold/ traded them when I decided to get rid of most of my alternative sleeves/ pressnings collection. Too bad! I still miss having 4 different colors of the N-liners sleeve.
