Sara & Rebecka's Steely Dan album released in the USA!

A bit of a surprise, but a nice one!

Swedish duo Sara Isaksson and Rebecka Törnqvist's 2006 album of Steely Dan covers Fire In The Hole gets a belated US release January 31 thanks to San Francisco-based label Zip Records!

To celebrate the occasion we're linking back to our Album of the Month page on the album. It includes a five minute interview English we did with Sara and Rebecka back in 2006.

Looks like the record label will concentrate on getting two songs on the radio stations; Rose Darling and Fire In The Hole. AAA stations apparently.

One question to ask Sara and Rebecka is if the Bad Sneakers version wasn't finshed or good enough to add as a bonus track to this 2012 release?

I wish them the best, in the US. Thank goodness I have such wonderful friends "Across the Pond" I have had the CD for years. :-)

A bit of a surprise to us to see it released this many years later, but hopefully a few more will get the chance to hear this fine album.

Will have to contact the US label and see how the whole thing came about. Stay tuned! :)
