Firebeats –Klap I Takt (Clap Your Hands And Stamp Your Feet)

Firebeats & Ingjerd Helén–Klap I Takt/Abraham –EMI X 9074 (1973 Danish issue)
As part of my life’s calling to collect every version of Bonnie St. Claire’s Clap Your Hands and Stamp Your Feet released at the time; please find enclosed the Norwegian version. Ingjerd was one of Norway’s most popular artists during the 1970s. Here she is backed by The Firebeats (also known as Firebeats Inc.), who were a popular beat combo during the 60s.
Anyhow the Norwegian entry is not a must have, but for completists only. It’s cute rather than killer and is in fact rather anaemic overall, but Pete Koelewijn classic still shines as a great song whatever the setting.

Hear a full version of Klap I Takt

This is meant to be a Danish version. Never heard of Ingjerd, but she sounds Norwegian. Although she sings in (not that good) Danish.

Thanks for the linguistic does that mean that she also did a version in Norwegian?

Don't think so. Didn't Gro Anita Schön do that?
Seems like someone in Norway thought: "Oh,there isn't a Danish version. Let's make money..."
