Interesting Coca Cola LP

Posted: March 9, 2019 in Cool stuff, General, Music (general)

Visited a collector in Östersund (Jämtland County) whom is selling quite a collection yesterday and walked away with a few interesting items. Top of the list has to be this one, a Coca Cola LP in red Vinyl from Swedish label SOS (Sound of Scandinavia) titled “Have a Coke and a smile”. Year of release is not mentioned but a quick check online about the company that released this shows a label that was active in Sweden in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The cover shot looks like it was taken in Sweden, probably as they (Coca Cola, SOS or both) filmed a commercial for the movies or something like that. If anybody has more information on where the cover was shot and what boat that is (could well still be in traffic), please leave a comment.

A number of suggestions (all text is in Swedish except for the title) on how to mix Coke with all sorts of fruits etc (no alcohol) and meals that suits the drinks is splattered all over the cover, which comes as a nice gatefold sleeve. All in all, I was quite happy to find this and to add it to the old collection, and the fact that is is a red Vinyl makes it even more exciting. I find the album to be a nice find and an interesting bit of history. The music is by various artists (Pink Floyd etc), not able to play the record so I have little to add on that side as I write this.

(Thank you for a good day Kalle!)
