Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again - Taas päivän pilvisen eessäni nään
After weeks of hot and dry spell we now have clouds and freshening rain. So, it's about time to listen to this song. Three drummers and aspiring singers Vesa Enne, Erkki Liikanen and Timo Tervo (real name Timo Tervomaa) got together and made two singles. On the first of those - recorded in 1971 - was this "Taas päivän pilvisen eessäni nään" (I see a cloudy day ahead of me again), Although being a very good song and a good interpretation by the the trio, it went unnoticed. And it is very hard to find these days. Vesa Enne was some kind of teen movie star in the beginning of 60's, acting and singing rock'n roll in in 4 films. Erkki Liikanen (see earlier entry) had started his career in the 60's but made it big as a solo singer in the 70's. Timo Tervo made also several solo records in the 70's, but his destiny is to be remembered by being father to pop and rock starlet Jonna Tervomaa. The original song "Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again" was written by the two famous Rogers - Cook and Greenaway, this time collaborating with Tony Macaulay. And it was made hit in 1971 by the British pop harmony group The Fortunes.
