Ro-D-Ys -The Complete Collection

1967/1968 Dutch Rock

excellent dutch rock

sadly enough the mixed up the album tracks
so you don't listen to it chronologically
but the the tracklists for both albums can be found at:
Just Fancy
Earnest Vocation
their second album is more psychedelic and its a
concept album produced by
Hans van Hemert who also
worked with Group 1850! and Q65

here's a amazon user review

The Ro-d-ys were from the northern part of The Netherlands and were formed somewhere around 1965. The name Ro-d-ys was chosen after they heard there already was a band called The Rowdies.
There very first single, released in 1966 flopped saleswise but got a lot of airplay. Their lucky break came with the follow up single "Take Her Home" in 1967. The succes continued with their best known single "Just Fancy" which was a hit late summer/early autumn 1967. In 1968 more quality singles were met with increasing lack of succes and after one more failed attempt with the beautiful and haunting single "Winter Woman" early 1969 the group called it quits. They released two albums, "Just Fancy"in 1967 and "Earnest Vocation" in 1968.
If you like sixties rock with influences from The Beatles, The Kinks & The Yardbirds then this is it. This set is also perfect if you are a completist! All of The Ro-d-ys' singles, A- as well as B-sides and album tracks are collected on these two discs.
The bonus tracks are from the post Ro-d-ys era when the group after a lean period hitwise fused with a Dutch group called Zen who had a similar style and also had gone through some hard times.

Hi Dirk,

wish you all the best, particularly that you can fight your cancer!

I stumbled upon Yasumi no kuni, which I like very much. Thank you for that.

Maybe you could repost
The Jacks- Vacant World+Super Session['68/69 Japan Group Sounds] ?

Kind regards
