From Per's Blog - episode 3

After taking quite a long break which we are very sorry for, we propose you to continue our joyride through the thoughts that Per had during the En Händing Man tour which took place in the summer of 2007.
July 18, 2007 Borgholm! Yes!!! Yeap, we’ve been there! In the middle of the cross! We had a cool stormy concert out there on the island. Almost 6000 people met us there, in a shining weather, to see a top form band, I felt cool there, in the spotlight, in front of the audience ….what can I say….it was splendid! The best singing so far, agreed all. We went home to Halmstad directly after the gig, I checked the Wings DVD all along the way and I went to bed at four thirty in the morning with McCartney floating all around. I woke up around 12 in a perfect summer day and I didn’t do too much today. Just a walk, a quick bath in the blue, a great pâté-sandwich. Tomorrow we’re heading to Sofiero outside Helsingborg where almost 10000 people are waiting for us. That’s cool! P. July 20, 2007 What happened? One more fantastic show!!!! Sofiero, we love you! A perfect afternoon with a party-mood band in front of how many, 9500 people? Maybe more? Anyway, it was damn cool. Happy thoughts and lots of friends from here and far away came out after the gig. And the beefsteak a la lindström from the catering was a success. And now the sun is shining here in Halmstad. We’ll be heading to Västervik where the world is already waiting for us. It will be cool! The best in the kitchen: Dave Edmunds’ Queen of hearts and Justin Timberlake’s What goes around.... luv around the clock, P. July 22, 2007 Västervik & Götet Hi, everybody! I’m in a hotel room in Göteborg and I’m waiting for the flight from Germany.

The final cut

Stockholm - Per Gessle seems to be in a great mood lately, here's another note from The Man: Another day, another record! Spent the afternoon, sipping coffee and eating English muffins at Cutting Room meanwhile mastering the demo-CD. What does it sound like, someone asked on the bus? Well, it sounds like… hmmm… like a demo-CD! We’ve managed to squeeze in three additional tracks so now the entire album can be enjoyed in its early glory! This is the final running order: The Demos according to Gessle 1. There is my baby (June 27, 1994) 2. I’ll be alright (July 16, 1994) 3. June afternoon (July 17, 1994) 4. Writer (July 17, 1994) 5. T-t-t-take it! (Sep 12, 1994) 6. Elvis in Germany (Nov 2, 1994) 7. Every day outside my window (Dec 28, 1995) 8. Love doesn’t live here (Feb 25, 1996) 9. Detective Jones (Feb 29, 1996) 10. Beautiful things, terrible things (Apr 7, 1996) 11. Elvis in Deutschland (Apr 26, 1996) 12. Makin’ love to you (acoustic version) (June 9, 1996) 13. Lay down your arms (June 23, 1996) 14. Do you wanna be my baby? (Aug 12, 1996) 15. B-Any-1-U-Wanna-B (Oct 24, 1996) 16. Stupid (Oct 28, 1996) 17. Saturday (Nov 2, 1996) 18. Wish you the best (Nov 3, 1996) 19. I want you to know (Dec 28, 1996) 20. Kix (Jan 2, 1997) Cheers, P. Source: Daily Roxette

The World gets updated; more tracks changed

STOCKHOLM - The Daily Roxette received a message from a guy who spoke of The World around 11 years ago:

Just came home from a swell mastering afternoon at Cutting Room. To my surprise EMI have managed to locate the rejected Battery studios-mixes, made by Michael Ilbert in London in December 1996.
Can hardly remember this…. but… I recall that Michael was very ill with a bad stomach throughout the week and I thought the studio was way too far away from my hotel in the posh areas so I didn't pay attention that much….. anyway… as you might know we only used the "There is my baby"-mix on the record. However, listening to the Battery mixes today both Clarence and I found them superior to the Mono Studio-mixes (made in January 1997) that we did use on the album… so…. we decided to change for this re-release. Which means you'll get "new" mixes on three tracks; "Elvis in Germany", "I'll be alright" & "T-t-t-take it!". Surprise.

Per comments about his publishing companies

On the Daily Roxette Forum, Per explains what's the deal with his publishing companies:
This is the story: I have two publishing companies: JIMMY FUN MUSIC & HIP HAPPY. SHOCK THE MUSIC is a publishing company owned by Marie F. INHOUSE MUSIC was EMI Sweden’s publishing company, nowadays it is merged into the big balloon called EMI MUSIC PUBLISHING. MUSIC FOR MONEY has never been a publishing company (a publishing company owns the rights to the songs, not to the actual recordings!!!). MUSIC FOR MONEY has changed name and become ELEVATOR ENTERTAINMENT and owns for instance the master tapes (the recordings) of Mazarin and Finn 5 fel! and Son of a Plum and The World According to... and En händig man and Helena’s first solo album etc. etc. EMI has licensed these rights to be able to release the records officially. GESSLE MUSIC was a publishing company but it doesn’t exist any more. All these songs (for instance Gå & fiska!) are nowadays published by JIMMY FUN. ROXETTE RECORDINGS, owned jointly by Marie & myself, is a company who controls the rights to Roxette’s master tapes & recordings. EMI (and other record companies) license these rights to release the records and downloads. That’s the deal. Cheers, P later, he adds: FUNDAMENTAL couldn’t be called FUNDAMENTAL because there’s an English record company called just that (I wasn’t aware of this in time for printing the sleeve or creating the sperm logo...) FUNDAMENTAL became GESSLE RECORDS which doesn’t exist anymore. Nowadays these rights belong to ELEVATOR. ROXETTE PRODUCTIONS is responsible for tours, merchandise etc. HAPPY ACCIDENT was another publishing company (R.I.P.). Its catalogue is now controlled by the ever glowing JIMMY FUN.

Best wishes for Women's Day!

We wish you happiness and may all your dreams come true!

Per writes for new singer

[img_assist|nid=801|title=|desc=|link=popup|align=left|width=201|height=134]
Swedish singer Caroline Larsson, hailing from Gothenburg, has gotten not one, but two songs from Per Gessle for her new album "In the Moment" which is due for release in May. "Per likes my voice, it has something special" Caroline says and continues, "Roxette was my biggest idol when I was a kid [Caroline is 21] and I have an incredible respect for Per." The first single "Hold on My Heart (Hey, It's Alright)" is already out to radio stations in Sweden. The song is at the moment a contender for the Svensktoppen chart. Hardcore fans may recognize the title and yes, the song was released by Dutch reality TV-band K-otic a few years back.

The other song Per has given Caroline is "Rainclouds," released in France by Popstar winners What For, then named "Depuis La Nuit des Temps." "In the Moment" is produced by Peter Samuelsson, bass player and singer in Barbados.

Caroline will stay in touch with Per. "We'll see what happens in the future."
