Episode 68 – Janne Schaffer

Kieran and Derek are feeling like a pair of Super Trooper’s as they are joined by Janne Schaffer to celebrate the release of the new studio album Voyage by ABBA. Janne is a Swedish songwriter and guitarist who has had huge solo success in his native Sweden but is better known as a session musician with the Swedish icons. Janne was invited by Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson to play on sessions in 1971. Janne played on People Need Love, and was ABBA’s most frequently used guitarist until he got too busy with his own career in the mid-1970s. Janne contributed to all of ABBA’s studio albums, with the exception of The Visitors.  Some of the more famous songs to feature his work are Ring Ring, Waterloo, SOS, Eagle, I Have A Dream, Super Trouper and Under Attack. We also talk of Jannes experiences of working with Pink Floyd and Bob Marley. Let Christy Take It bring you Janne Schaffer. Thanks to Mark Cullen for his editing skills. As usual he is on the Money Money Money!
