Summer Nights - Ne kesäyöt
After doing some successful co-operation in the folk music scene with Österberg brothers, Bosse & Robert, Anki Lindqvist (real name Agneta Elisabeth Lindqvist) went to solo. At first she used her whole name, but eventually it was shortened to just "Anki". One of the songs she is best remembered by, is "Ne kesäyöt" (Those summer nights). The original song was done by Marianne Faithfull, and it was published as a single in August 1965. It was no wonder that this beautiful melodic tune was soon picked up by Finns.
