2LP – Various Artists – Behind The Dykes (Beat, Blues & Psychedelic Nuggets From The Lowlands 1964-1972)(2LP)
Behind The Dykes bevat een ware schatkamer aan Nederbeat rariteiten. Van de allereerste (en zeldzame) singles van bands als The Motions en The Sandy Coast tot bands en artiesten die in hun carriere slechts 1 of 2 singles opnamen. Striptekenaar Toon van Driel maakte ooit een single onder de naam Dimitri, Jules Deelder zat in de band Popera, je hoort BZN hoe ze klonken toen ze nog zangeres-loos waren, en verder obscure singles van Dragonfly, The Sound Of Imker, Short ’66, The Haigs (met leadzanger Barry Hay). Prachtig vormgegeven, individuele liner notes per artiest en op geel en blauw vinyl. Wereldwijde oplage van 3000 stuks.
2LP (180gr.) on coloured vinyl in gatefold sleeve with printed innersleeves. 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 pressing 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 album was especially compiled/designed for RSD 2020. The psychedelic artwork looks fabulous. 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. Limited edition of individually numbered copies on coloured vinyl.
