SHOCKING BLUE SINGLE COLLECTION (PART 1) Limited Gatefold 180gram Audiophile Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:

One of the most famous Dutch bands is the in The Hague formed Shocking Blue. The band released some of their best selling hits all around the world, including the still-standing `Venus`. It´s just one of the many songs which can be found on the double LP Single Collection album. The essential album was released in 1997 and part 1, consisting of 28 of their songs. Here you can listen to Robbie's magnificent and powerful B-sides like 'Fireball Of Love', 'Hot Sand', 'Wild Wind' and 'Roll Engine Roll', to name just a few, which could all easily have been A-sides as well. Or what about the compelling 'Is This A Dream', that opens with heavy breathing and ends with great biting guitarwork by Robbie. 'Pickin Tomatoes' has a wonderful guitar line and is the most appealing track. Robbie, the great composer, and Mariska Venus, the inimitable singer, offer sheer musical delight on this essential compilation album, which is a perfect introduction to all other albums by Shocking Blue. The album also includes hits like ´Never Marry A Railroad Man´ and ´Mighty Joe´.
