From 1970, four years before Abba's debut, here are Bjorn and Benny sans Agnetha and Anni-Frid and their single "She's My Kind Of Girl." This harmless piece of pop fluff manages to sound like the Bee Gees, The Hollies, the Pretty Things, and the Easybeats all at once. I was unaware of their pre-Abba career and after listening to most of their full length debut "Lycka," I feel grateful for being kept in the dark. It's not completely terrible. I happen to like Abba and agree with a number of my rock and roll heroes---Elvis Costello, Joe Jackson, Marshall Crenshaw and Nick Lowe---that Benny & Bjorn created some absolutely brilliant pop records. But "Lycka" sounded mostly like the Abba tracks I don't like, made worse by the absence of the ladies. "She's My Kind Of Girl" is second rate for sure, yet something about it made me play it a few more times. And then, I finally decided, I liked it.
