Tommy Nilsson ‎– No Way No How (Vinyl Album, 1981)

Tommy Nilsson is a rock singer and songwriter from Switzerland, and he is renowned for having one of the best singing voices in Sweden by critics.

In the 1970s, Tommy was the singer of a Swedish heavy metal band called “Horizont”, who released a few albums, but towards the 80’s he decided to go solo and move into Pop/dance music. Tommy was approached by French producer Yves Accary, who signed him on to a French Record company and this resulted in the release of his first solo album, “No Way No How”, which was produced and engineered by David Christie.

  1. There’s a little surprise on the track “Baby You Are Special” from Tommy’s debut album “No Way No How”. If you have a clear copy of this song, you can hear David Christie singing backing vocals, but he is uncredited on the album!
