SHOCKING BLUE - ATTILA

SHOCKING BLUE

ATTILA

1LP

In 1972, Shocking Blue released their 6th album Attila, a solid Pop album written entirely by Van Leeuwen, anchored by Mariska Veres' powerful vocals. Noteworthy tracks on Attila are "Rock In The Sea", album opener "Rattler" and the moody "Wait". This album is definitely worth picking up for a comprehensive view on Holland's biggest export product's early '70s output.

Formed in 1967 by former Motions guitarist Robbie van Leeuwen, Shocking Blue was joined by Cor van der Beek (drums), Klaasje van der Wal (bass) and Mariska Veres as lead vocalist. In 1969 and 1970, the group set the airwaves crackling and enjoyed a worldwide chart success with "Venus" (which incorporated the help of studio musician Cees Schrama of Casey & The Pressure Group [MOVLP1132]), followed by several other hit singles.

In 1972, they released their 6th album Attila, a solid Pop album written entirely by Van Leeuwen, anchored by Mariska's powerful vocals. Her incredible range and control is at times compared with Jefferson Airplane's singer Grace Slick. Noteworthy tracks on Attila are "Rock In The Sea", album opener "Rattler" and the moody "Wait". This album is definitely worth picking up for a comprehensive view on Holland's biggest export product's early '70s output.
