For Record Store Day 2017 Music On Vinyl will release a special double A-side edition of "Homeland" and "Summer Is Here".
"Homeland" by Haarlem's Chef's Special is an uptempo and energetic song. Featuring their trademark ska, reggae, funk and pop roots, the song is an uptempo and energetic track.
Formed in 2008, Haarlem, Chef's Special became the house band for popular Dutch TV program "De Wereld Draait Door" in 2011. Since then the five-piece band, led by vocalist and frontman Joshua Nolet, has released two albums and three ep's and are touring frequently.
Flipping the coloured 7" over is "Summer is here" from The Outsiders which features Wally Tax on vocals. The song was originally released in 1967, reached the #8 position in the Dutch Singles chart and celebrates it's 50th anniversary this year. It is a classic example of the "Nederbiet" sound and The Outsiders gained popularity as support-act for The Rolling Stones when they performed in Holland in 1966. They enjoyed several hits, released albums during their active period and toured in different line-ups up off and on. Unfortunately Wally Tax, their lead-singer and componist passed away in 2005.
