Belgian Vaults Volume Two - Various Artists on Limited Edition 180g LP + CD
Belgian label Starman Records specializes in re-releases of Belgian rock from the 60's, 70's and 80's. They have released four acclaimed volumes in the Belgian Vaults series so far, unique collections focusing entirely on the '60s and early-70s and compiling many very hard to find tracks, most released as singles on small, long forgotten labels. Pop, beat, rock'n roll, psych...gems worth being re-discovered, the comps also offer restored and remastered sound quality. The amazing album cover shots are from the hand of the Belgian photographer Raoul Van den Boom, one of the very few who was there when it all happened.
Belgian Vaults Volume Two is another exciting '60s compilation with carefully selected, rare or lesser known tracks by Belgian '60s bands. On general Starman has also added a CD with the same tracks to this vinyl release. Volume Two contains 16 fantastic beat, rock and psych tracks by bands who deserve their place in the history of rock and roll: Adam's Recital, The Cousins, The Shakes, Little Jimmy and the Sharks, The Paramounts, The Mec OP Singers, The Sheiks, The Klan, Guy Wathelet, Clee's Five, The Swallows, The Tellstars, The Sonny Boys, Les Ombres and Davy Jr and Guess Who. They all shine brightly on Belgian Vaults Volume Two.
