Various Artists - Dutch Rare Folk - 43 Lost Classics From the Golden Age of Nederfolk 1967-1987 (Netherlands 2007) @320

This compilation is assembled by Fonos who have one of the first official CDR library copy services with a lot of rare Dutch records. They have developped a huge library and extensive background with this archive and beyond and decided to release a double CD album with some classic examples of rare Dutch folk/folkpop/folkpsych albums. The folk scene in Holland, they say, always was smaller compared to Belgium, where there always were numerous folk bars, scenes and also festivals. But if you see the results of what they collected and from what I knew already I think Holland still stand out pretty well with their examples.

Hi CrimsonKing.

This is a very interesting compilation! I have some, I know a lot of them and there are also some completely new to me. Koeraash, Jarje, Folkcorn. So thank!

In the Netherlands some good folk was made, but it was not on the foreground. The dutch have less a folktradition than the belgians, but it was there! Nederbeat and later Dutch prog and Sympho was more in the picture. And a lot of dutch were/are not proud of folkmusic or do even know it exists! But groups as Chimera, Fungus (which is the only one well known with some hitsingles: Mannen met baarden = men with beards), Crackerhash and Sido Martens were excellent.

There was also some very good 'psych'folk by among others Elly Nieman and Rikkert Zuiderveld with titles as Parzival, de draad van Ariadne(Ariadne'd thread)and Maarten en het witte paard(Maarten and the white horse) before they became extreme christians in stead of extreme hippies to the consternation of their friends and fans in 1971! Elly Nieman also sang on the single Prikkebeen by Boudewijn de Groot, who was and is a phenomenon in the Netherlands with few excellent albums.

So I am going to listen to this with much pleasure and of course... I can understand (much of) what they are singing about. ;-)

This a a nice album but when you upload it at Mega.NZ I only can read it but never download because of error.

Greeting Jim.

Hi Jim, do you use a download accelerator such as IDA? Try removing it.
