The PGA in full


The Per Gessle Archives, A Lifetime of Songwriting will be released Sept. 23, in Sweden and in other countries as well if things go as planned. Per says the box will be “heavy” both in weight and contents-wise. There are 10 CDs and one LP plus a hefty book in it. Some demos are already known, most are not. Some demos are not what we think they are… Volumes 1 & 2 have been out on Spotify and iTunes etc, since May and the Mazarin demos were released online as “Bad Hair Day” in 2006. Meanwhile, read thru the tracklist and drool.
