Lea Laven recorded "Älä pelkää" (Don't be afraid) in 1980. It was released on her album "Määränpäänä tähdet" (Destination stars). The album was made in the wake of the success of her mega-hit "Ei oo ei tuu". This track has been sadly forgotten. It is a fine composition and Lea's interpretation is of high quality. The original song "Lady Laura" was performed and co-written by Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos (real name Roberto Carlos Braga). Roberto has achieved a great deal of success and recognition in South AMerica and worldwide in his 50 year old career. Most of his songs - like this "Lady Laura" are written in partnership with his friend, the singer and songwriter Erasmo Carlos. Roberto Carlos has sold over 100 million albums around the world.
