Description

Offered for sale is a still sealed original Japanese promotional copy of Something’s Going On by Frida.

About this copy: This copy of Something’s Going On is a 1982 Japanese pressing on the Discomate label.

As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.

The wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears, or holes.  The cover is M-.

This LP was issued without an obi, but instead had a large sticker attached to the shrink wrap.  There is a smaller sticker at the top of the cover that says “Sample” in Japanese.

The disc should be a white label promotional copy. (see photo for example)

A beautiful copy of an album that’s hard to find complete, as the sticker is usually missing.

Background: Released in 1982, Something’s Going On was the third solo album by Annifrid Lyngstad, better known as “Frida,” and former member of ABBA.

This was her first English-language LP.  The album reached #18 on the UK album chart and #41 on the U.S. chart.

Allmusic.com gave Something’s Going On a 4 star review:

Fans of ABBA’s sugary-sweet pop songs will no doubt be surprised by Something’s Going On, the remarkably hard-edged 1982 solo album by ABBA vocalist Anni-Frida Lyngstad, better known simply as Frida. …Something’s Going On boasts impressive guitar work by Daryl Stuermer, who has toured with Genesis as well as appeared on several Collins solo albums. Collins’ drum work is also outstanding, particularly on the hard-hitting hit single “I Know There’s Something Going On.” Frida herself shows an unexpected emotional range given ABBA’s two-dimensional pop gloss. … Frida escapes the creative limitations of being a member of one of the world’s most popular groups on this solid and often riveting album.
