New in the collection

(It's All Over Now) Baby Blue
Frikadeļu zupa
Frikadeļu zupa gatava!
197?; Zupa Records ZUPA 1 (LP)

A mysterious LP - sung in Latvian and all the printing is Latvian - but it was made in the USA! The Dylan cover uses the shortened Baby Blue, in English, as the title, and although the track is sung in Latvian the 2 words "Baby Blue" at the end of each verse are sung in English. Female lead singer with acoustic guitars, percussion, and some kind of electronic keyboard. No date given, probably '70s vintage. Band members were Raimonds Ramanis, Vidvuds Mednis, Laila Medne and Vilnis Plostiņš.
Frikadeļu zupa translates to "Meatballs soup," and the album title means "[The] meatballs soup [is] ready!"

The album title in Latvian means
"[The] meatballs soup [is] ready!"

The band is supposed to be named simply "Frikadeļu zupa" or "Meatballs soup".

Thank you! I've made the correction.

That is itself a cover of "Viss tagad zudis, baby blue" by the band 'Dundurs' (another Latvian band, this one from Sweden?) from their album 'Reiz agra rita izgajam' from some time in the 70's as well.
May try to send you a pic.
