Robert Haagsma - The Golden Years of Dutch Pop Music (NL, 2016)

Post by Rob » Mon Jan 02, 2017 12:54 pm

Robert Haagsma is a music critic who has also written several books about Dutch music. This year he released a book about what he called the Golden Years of Dutch Pop Music, from 1960 to 1979. This book also contains 3 lists: 33 essential albums, 45 essential singles and "Alle 13 cult" (13 cult singles, that is).

I've found the complete albums list here: http://www.muzieklijstjes.nl/GoldenAge3 ... albums.htm
Here it is, obviously in alphabetical order:

1 Alquin | Nobody can wait forever | 1975
2 Armand | Armand | 1967
3 Les Baroques | Les Baroques | 1966
4 Bintangs | Genuine bull | 1975
5 Brainbox | Brainbox | 1969
6 Herman Brood & his Wild romance | Shpritsz | 1978
7 BZN | The bastard | 1971
8 Cargo | Cargo | 1972
9 Cats | The Cats | 1968
10 CCC Inc. | To our grandchildren | 1971
11 Crazy rockers | Drivin' with the Crazy rockers | 1964
12 Cuby and the Blizzards | Groeten uit Grollo | 1967
13 Earth and Fire | Song of the marching children | 1971
14 Focus | Focus 2 | 1971
15 Golden earring | Moontan | 1973
16 Boudewijn de Groot | Voor de overlevenden | 1966
17 Group 1850 | Agemo's trip to mother Earth | 1968
18 Kayak | Phantom of the night | 1979
19 Peter Koelewijn | Het beste in mij is niet goed genoeg voor jou | 1977
20 Livin' blues | Blue breeze | 1976
21 Mother's love | Take one | 1967
22 Motions | Introduction to the Motions | 1965
23 Outsiders | CQ | 1968
24 Q65 | Revolution | 1966
25 Sandy coast | From the workshop | 1968
26 Shocking blue | At home | 1969
27 Shoes | Make up your make-up | 1974
28 Solution | Cordon bleu | 1975
29 Supersister | To the highest bidder | 1971
30 Sweet d'buster | Friction | 1978
31 Tee-set | Emotion | 1966
32 Tielman brothers | On stage | 1960
33 ZZ en de Maskers | ZZ en de Maskers | 1965

Note that it only covers the years 1960 to 1979.

I can't find the singles list online, but my local library has the book, although it on loan. I'll try to get it later.

I think this is eligible, non?

This one seems to have gotten lost in the enormous pile of lists that were added in the last couple of months. Just want to check if it is eligible?

Put it on the "undecided lists" thread and you might have a better chance of getting Henrik to see it.
