Surprieze-Zeer oude klanken en heel nieuwe geluiden

1973 Dutch "Psychedelic Free Blues

this is the best quality version of this rare album (265 kbits) around
and taken from a bootleg
i posted this one somewhere in 2006 but that was in crappy 128 kbits.

got this one from some one at the Lost In Tyme blog
who felt that this was more appropriate for my blog.

includes HQ Scans

some info:

One of the most obscure Dutch albums is without a doubt the LP by Surprieze, titled: Zeer oude klanken en heel nieuwe geluiden (Very old sounds and completely new sounds), performed and arranged by Ed van der Meer de Walcheren.
Eddie in 1995: “In september 1966, I started up the band Slack Gang in Breda. We played blues, inspirated by John Lee Hooker, Howling Wolf, Sonny Boy Wiiliamson etc.
Little by little we changed into a kind of cult-band, playing music which we called ‘freeblues’, long tracks, influenced by bands like Capt.Beefheart.
In 1967 we performed in The Hague at the Holland Blues Festivbal in the famous club ‘De Drie Stoepen’, where we played together with acts like Indiscrimination and the Leo Unger Band.
During those days there was something going on in Breda, under the influence of the Academy of Art and the semi-anarchal Theatre ‘De Trapkes’ where mostly jazz and freeform Theatre was performed.
This was the place wheer we held our Provadya-evenings with Slack Gang.
The music of that band grew more into the pop-direction and I left the band.
I continued playing blues and doing some solo-performances.
The LP Surprieze dates from that time (1973).
It contains a.o. Turkish music, blues, free-jazz and electronic sounds”.
