VA – Behind The Dykes 1: Beat, Blues And Psychedelic Nuggets From The Lowlands 1964-1972

Out of stock


“Behind The Dykes is a 2LP compilation presenting the best bands and artists the Dutch had to offer in the period 1964-1972. The Netherlands were the first non-English speaking country to storm the Billboard Hot 100 with a string of hit singles from bands such as Shocking Blue, Focus, George Baker Selection, Golden Earring and Tee-Set. This 2LP presents the bands that followed closely behind, with singles and albums that internationally have become highly sought-after records. Some bands with a rich discography, others with no more than one or two singles under their belt. Original singles of many of these tracks are currently offered and/or sold for hundreds of Euros on Discogs, and many original pressings were so limited at the original time of release that they are impossible to find. The album is released under the Decca brand with the classic logos and labels. The full color printed inner sleeves contain liner notes about each individual band with the original single artwork, while the inside of the gatefold sleeve contains photos of the artists featured on this album. 180 gram audiophile vinyl. Gatefold sleeve. Printed innersleeves with track-by-track liner notes, photos and credits. Includes rare songs from The Motions, The Sandy Coast, The Outsiders, The Incrowd, The Beat Buddies, The Heralds, The Scarlets, Baldwin, The Counts, Short ’66, The Haigs, The Bobby Green Selection, 1-2-3-4-5, The Bumble Bees, Dimitri, Nou&, Indiscrimination, B.Z.N., Dragonfly, The Fool, Pol & Paul, Shocking Blue, The Sound Of Imker, Names And Faces, Popera, Modesty Blaise, The Tykes, Amsterdam, Airport, World, Jug Session, The Freddies, Alligatorman, Holland, Nanda, Painting House, and Supersister.”
