Nederbeat Singles 63-69::the b-sides volume 2

Highly Recommended!
do leave comments
second(and last) volume in this b-sides compilation

again 50 tracks of excellent b-sides

contains some excellent tracks
like Lemon Coloured Honey Tree by After Tea
wich is a great psych pop song
and some other excellent songs by The Motions,Bintangs,Sandy Coast and Shoes to name a few

taken from the shindig review:
the usual (classy) suspects are here as they were on the box set itself, Q65, Outsiders, Golden Earrings, Cuby & The Blizzards et al. However, these apart across the four discs, there are some great finds which make these well worth having;

After Tea's 'Lemon Coloured Honey Tree' is, as you would expect from such a title, a great pop (psych edged) number, as is their 'The Time Is High'; one of the Sandy Coast's later numbers, 'My Friend Abdullah' is a mid paced floating psych ballad (if such a genre exists!), anything by Zen is just fine by me, and their rendition of 'Aquarius' is the most pucker version I have ever heard; The Hunters 'When I See Babette' is a fab floaty balladic number but skip their 'It Ain't Me Babe' which despite the R&B implications of the title sounds like a cowboy song! Hu & The Hilltops put in a few great appearances and The Dukes 'The Day That Changed My Life' and Bojoura's 'Faceless Sorrow' are two of the nuggets that make me glad I own the discs. Overall, if you want a goodie bag of Dutch '60s sounds these sets largely give you that; pop, R&B and beat that bring a smile to the face and a lively tap to the toe, a bit of chaff here and there (hey they are B sides!)
