She Was Dynamite - Se oli kuuma yö
Let's now hear some Euro rock'n roll. The Finnish representative is a man who in no way is associated with rock or rock'n roll - Kari Tapio (see previous entry). Nevertheless he recorded this driving song "Se oli kuuma yö" (It was a hot night) in 1979. It was released as a single but didn't go anywhere. Kari's time wasn't just yet ... The original song "She Was Dynamite" was of Dutch origin and performed by Jack Jersey (real name Jack de Nijs), who also recorded under many other names. He was most famous for his Elvis style pop music, of which this song is perfect example. Jack had begun his musical career already in 1958, but the biggest success he met in the 70's with the moniker Jack Jersey.
