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.
The Outsiders were formed in Amsterdam circa 1960, and although the '60s pop scene in the Netherlands was dominated by bands from The Hague, they were equally dominant in that period. Led by singer Wally Tax, The Outsiders were known for their rough and uncompromising sound which would often inspire skirmishes at their performances.
"Lying All The Time" provided The Outsiders with their first Top 10 hit in 1966 and songs like "Keep On Trying," "Touch," "Monkey On Your Back" and "Summer Is Here" also entered the Dutch Top 40 and are included here. B sides like "Thinking About Today" and "Daddy Died On Saturday" plus a selection of songs from their albums The Outsiders and CQ round out the package.
