No Help From Me - Kellon soiton kuulla saan

Kirka recorded "Kellon soiton kuulla saan" (I'll hear the bell ring) in 1968 and it was released on the B-side of his modestly successful single "Okolona River Bottom Band". It was arranged by Jaakko Salo and the Finnish lyrics were from the pen of Pertsa Reponen. The original song was called "No Help From Me" and it was the B-side to Lemon Pipers' smash hit "Green Tambourine" (finnpicked before, see here). The song represents the 'true' Lemon Pipers, who were basically blues, hard rock and rock'n roll group, but they got labeled as psychedelic bubblegum band. The song featured lead vocals by guitarist Bill Bartlett and did not appear on either of the group's two albums.

Here's the pair:
