#553 Denmark...Thanks Ole!

The 4.4k stamp is from 1989 Europa issue of Children Toys showing Wooden Soldiers by Kay Bojessen.

The 5.5k stamp was issued in 2010 featuring Pladecover: Gasolin' 3.

Gasolin' 3 was the third album from Danish rock band Gasolin', released in November 1973.

Gasolin' was a Danish rock band from Christianshavn in Copenhagen formed by Kim Larsen, Franz Beckerlee and Wili Jønsson in 1969.From 1972 to 1978, Gasolin' was the most popular rock band in Denmark. With producer Roy Thomas Baker, they released classics such as Gasolin' 3, Gas 5 and Efter endnu en dag. Their albums sound as fresh and innovative now as they did then. In that respect Gasolin' may be considered as the Danish Beatles. Each album was a landmark and like The Beatles, they broke up at the pinnacle of their success. The reasons for the split-up was the failure to break the international market and personal differences.
