Il Giocattolo - Uhkapeluri
Eero & Jussi were two singing Raittinen brothers starting their career already in the 50's. Eero Raittinen went solo in 1966. His 4th single was "Uhkapeluri" (The Gambler) released in 1969. The song was a hit then, and is still hitting the charts today when re-done by a popular Finnish singer Jorma Kääriäinen. The original (again) is from Italy. It was recorded by a famous Italian pop star Gianni Morandi in 1968 and was called 'Il Giocattolo' (The Toy).
