Per Gessle - Son of a Plumber

In 2005 the Swedish singer and composer Per Gessle (from Roxette) released a solo record named Son Of a Plumber. It may be my favorite album of his.

The idea was to go on a trip back to the 1960s and 1970s.  Per wanted the record to feel like an LP where you must turn the vinyl after half the record. That is why it consists of 2 CDs with a overall play time of 63 minutes for 25 tracks (!) - including a 5 song spanning junior suite.
Sounds quite different than a standard 12 track album, isn't it?

If you don't want to try out the full record, start with:
- Drowning In Wonderful Thoughts About Her
- I Have A Party In My Head
- C’mon

... or listen to the whole record here (I strongly recommend headphones):
