I've heard of the Shocking Blue (I know "Venus" and the Bananarama cover), Keesie, but you've given me some Dutch artists to keep an eye out for now! I had no idea so many picture sleeves were made...That's one thing about some of these European artists...They are huge overseas, whereas here in the States, they barely register a blip on the radar! I know of a few Dutch artists...Did Golden Earring, The Tee Set ("Ma Belle Amie"), or George Baker ("Little Green Bag", "Paloma Blanca") ever cross your radar? One of my favorite funk groups were The Dolly Dots...I actually have a few picture sleeves and 45's from them...

And this a lot of people may not realize...Eddie and Alex Van Halen were actually born in Nijmegen in the Netherlands before moving to America! :-k

And in recent years, there's been a big boom in Dutch techno and hip hop, thanks to DJ's like Tiësto, Armin Van Buuren, Afrojack and Martin Garrix...I kinda know a little about that, as without Detroiters like Carl Craig, Kevin Saunderson, Juan Atkins and Derrick May, techno might not have gotten off the ground in the first place! :D

In the jazz world, there is Candy Dulfer and one of my favorite pop tunes is this one from the Dutch group Diesel!



Kayak is another one!

So, I'm interested in the Dutch music scene and always love to find new artists to love from overseas! :D

One girl in particular that I've discovered in recent years is the soul-jazz songstress Trijntje Oosterhuis (TRYN-TCHA OOH-STER-HOSE)...Here's a favorite of mine from her 2012 album, "Wrecks We Adore"...

Wow, you know quite a lot of music and about Dutch groups! Yes, Trijntje Oosterhuis is a famous singer here.
Try Shocking Blue: 'The long and lonesome road' on Youtube, or Earth & Fire: "Wild & Exciting" and especiallly the guitar solo at the very end.......!
Yes, I grew up with those, George Baker and Tee set, and I have them as well on single.
I did some 'homework', because I expected you to ask for the Golden Earring. They started around 1964, and like the Rolling Stones, they carry on till this day. You will know 'Radar Love' and 'When the lady smiles'. I have some Diesel 45's, and did you know Candy Dulfer played with Prince?
Ok, here some more pictures....
Golden Earring:

Ekseption also was quite a big group. They took classical music and turned them into pop.

Ok, I said I have mainly sixties, but............there are so many exceptions. Of course there is ABBA.

"The Day Before You Came" is a great song, as is their underrated "The Visitors" album, Keesie! I once had to do a school report in a geography class about Scandinavia and I played some of ABBA's music during the report to familiarize the class with some of the area's most important "exports"! :wink:

Yes, I also consider that song their 'Hey Jude'. A wonderful song, which I play often, and especially the very ending of it is great. Although most of ABBA's songs were top 10 with us, 'The day before you came' was only a minor one. I guess people expected something up-tempo, and they were not used to this.

Next one, Beach Boys. Often Beatles fans also like Beach Boys music.

Bee Gees. I especially love their stuff up to around 1970. The two singles with the big '4' on the front are German double-singles. That series is quite interesting for people who are not able to get the original singles (the tracks themselves are) or who want all the hits in one go. I have one from Melanie and one from Joe Cocker also.

I could carry on if there is any interest, but it is quite some work to search for those series.

Hi Keesie, please do.
I've really enjoyed your pics, specially the Stones and Kinks.
I'd like to have some Italian Kinks 45's, but due to poor selling and distribution in the 60's, they are too rare and expensive.
when you have time, please post some more, thank you!

PS: have you ever been to the Utrecht Records fair? I'd like to go one day, I hope soon, and I'd like to have some info about it
bye K

Thanks for that Kindsaluw. The record fair in Utrecht you mean is called 'Jaarbeurs'. The train station is within walking distance, going by car is not advisable. By head it is twice a year, and a big part of it is records and music. However, there is far more: a department for furniture, paintings, stamps and coins, antiques and far far more. You pay one fee for the total. If not interested in other stuff, you can go straight to the music department. The very first single I ever bought was......'Days' from the Kinks!

Ok, here some more pictures, Creedence and the Hollies.

Man oh man, Keesie! You just keep bringing the goods! If you're a Badfinger fan, check out one of my favorite online radio shows (KFAI's "True Brit") from a few years back...Joey Molland from Badfinger was the guest host, picked all the music (his favorite tunes) and had some really great stories from the good ol' days...You can listen to it here...
