Very rare orig. Swedish pressing on SONET, # SLP 2501, 1969 with MARIHUANA gatefold cover. Peps Persson was probably the most important artist in introducing blues to Sweden in the late '60s and early '70s. In 1966, Peps Persson formed the group Downbeat Crowd and released a cover of Muddy Waters' "Got My Mojo Working" as a single. The first LP, "Blues Connection", was released in 1968 on Gazell and the name of the band was now Linkin' Louisiana Peps. The second album "Sweet Mary Jane" under the name Linkin' Louisiana Peps & Blues Quality released in 1969 on Sonet, a label he would keep
to for most of his career, and followed a traditional blues and R&B formula.
