4th album Aftermath; one of the best albums I think

I realy liked; Stupid Girl, Lady Jane, Flight 505, High and Dry, Out of time and then the little hidden jewels of Doncha bother me and I am waitng. And then the rather peculiar Going Home.

And then came the famous single Paint it black.(May 1966)

Dutch popgroeps 1960's

My first memory about pop music was the song "Kom van het Dak af"  by Peter Koelewijn. I must have been about 6, when we were on the beach and my two older brother were imitating ,with sticks a guitars , the song.

When I was around 11 or 12 or so , we were fortunate that there was a rather progressive village council, but as we were situated around a tourist area (dunes,beeches and the sea) and so a few campings were around, this might also have played a role in inviting three well known pop groups in three successive years.
Rob Hoeke, Golden Earring and the Shoes;

This song my brothers might had as I can remember it after 50 years!

This kind of music I can remember from the first performance, like the next one; it must have been when I was 10 or 11(1964 probably) 

Golden Earring came the next year I think, that must have been 1965 (12 years old)
I cannot remember the music from that concert, but I remember the following tracks and some more, but these are the good ones I really liked. They are very original I think and typically Golden Earring.

That Day (1966)

Daddy, buy me a girl (1966)

Sound of the screaming day (1967)

I just lost somebody This was one of my favourites (1968)

And to my shame I then liked this one too; Dong dong diki diki dong; perhaps to show my mother that pop music was not too bad! (1968, 14 years old)
Just a Little Bit of Peace in My Heart (1968)

Then I lost touch with this kind of music.

The Shoes came next year (1966)



Other popgroeps  were the outsiders

Monkey on you back
