"Doris - Did You Give The World Some Love Today, Baby-1970 Sweden":
Doris Svensson was born July 1, 1947 in Gothenburg and started her career as a singer with the band Strangers in 1960. In 1966 she joined a band called Plums.
Doris became something of a cult figure in Sweden a few years ago when the TV show Musikbyran did a half hour special on the music scene in late 60's/early 70's. Before the show, very few had even heard of her, and suddenly her only solo album "Did You Give The World Some Love Today, Baby ".
The material was composed by TV producer, jazz-pianist, and composer Berndt Egerbladh.
Janne Carlsson was hired to do the drumming, together with Doris's husband bassist Lukas Lindholm and guitarist Bengan Carlsson they recorded an album that certainly stands the test of time. Jazz, rock, pop and little bit of soul all rolled into one.
