KISS: SWEDEN SINGLES DISCOGRAPHY





Scandanavian (Norwegian & Swedish) singles can sometimes provide a problem. Jo Hjermstad of Lillehammer, once pointed out to me, "To see if you have a Swedish or Norwegian release, you have to look at the label. Both have "N©B" printed on the label (it means "Nordic Copyright Bureau). If there is a square print around the "N©B" then it's probably a Norwegian release. The Swedish release have rectangular print. To be absolutely sure, you can take a look in the groove off on the vinyl (Ed. Matrix[. If you find the number "710", it's a Norwegian release." Thanks Jo! I've also noted that most Swedish singles say "Made In Sweden"...
