Description

The Golden Years of Dutch Pop Music is a new Music On Vinyl series of compilation albums by Dutch bands that were not only groundbreaking and successful in the '60s and '70s in the Netherlands but also far beyond Dutch borders. Each double album collects the band's most important original A sides and a selection of their B side singles. The corresponding audio has been remastered for the vinyl format and the compilations come complete with redesigned artwork including English liner notes.

Earth and Fire was formed by Dutch brothers Chris and Gerard Koerts on guitar and keyboards respectively. The first classic line-up featured vocalist Manuela Berloth, who was later replaced by Jerney Kaagman, and included bass player Hans Ziech and drummer Ton van der Kleij. After becoming the supporting act for Barry Hay's The Golden Earrings, the George Kooymans written "Seasons" provided Earth and Fire with their first hit and an album filled with their own work followed.

"Ruby Is The One," "Wild And Exciting," "Storm And Thunder," "Maybe Tomorrow, Maybe Tonight" and "Memories" were all successful singles which cracked the Dutch Top 10. The band scored the biggest hit of their career in 1979 with "Weekend." Next to the hits here are a plethora of excellent B-sides like "Song Of The Marching Children," "Theme From Atlantis" and the 7-part "Excerpts From To The World Of The Future."
