Can’t get You out of my Mind – Carlings 1991
This is a tune composed by 19 year old Gerd Carling and sung by her 16 year old sister Gunhild. A few years ago I had received another video of the Carlings where Gunhild was singing and I checked all my Billy Holiday CD’s if I could find the original from where Gunhild had copied it from. I finally telephoned mom Aina in Gotheborg Sweden and she told me it also was a compositian by sis Gerd. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=463TExvh0A0 which by now has received more than 1500 viewings and for my part deserves 10 times more views.
However one cannot force these things.
Gunhild is backed up with some fine close up harmonies by Gerd on alto and brother Max on tenor, Max plays a tenor solo with some Lester Young influences thrown in, after that Gunhild takes a beautiful highpitched lead to finish the tune which lasts just over 2 minutes for full emotional impact.
