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.

Kayak was formed in 1972 around composer and keyboardist Ton Scherpenzeel, and soon revealed themselves to be trendsetters in the symphonic genre. They scored hit singles with "Mammoth" and "Starlight Dancer" and delivered very convincing albums with Royal Bed Bouncer and The Last Encore. After a line-up change, the revised crew recorded the acclaimed Phantom Of The Night which was one of the first ever albums to be recorded in the then new Wisseloord Studios in Hilversum. 

The band followed it up in 1980 by contributing music to Paul Verhoeven's controversial film Spetters. "Theme From Spetters," was written especially for the movie. "Lost Blue Of Chartres" and "Anne," the latter reaching the national Top 40, are also included here. "Try To Write A Book," "Golddust" and six more B sides round out the package and give a nice overview of Kayak's career.
