Kick out the jams (and jellies)

I love this one!   Thanks to Lp cover lover, Jan Andersson for sending it to us.   We’ve seen these ladies here before and they’re always welcome to sit in and jam.   Elna Fredhoy och Rigmor Odum sunger egna sanger. (We’d love to get some more information about these two, what kind of music it is, a translation — anyone?)
