The Netherlands was the first non-English speaking country to score a string of international hits back when pop music was still in its infant stage. Just think about Shocking Blue, Focus, Mouth And MacNeal, Tee-Set, or The Golden Earring. Of course, many more great bands and artists emerged from this country behind the dykes. Some are well known, others are true gems. Here's a selection of some of the finest Dutch artists from that era and their albums.
