GOLDEN EARRING - FROM HEAVEN FROM HELL (2x10") - MOV10001
The Golden anniversary of the Godfathers of Dutch Rock is something that should be celebrated in the best of ways, and Music On Vinyl has decided to join the party by releasing a brand new compilation of the Golden Earring on Gold 10" vinyl! This is not a run-of-the-mill collection of Best Ofs, but a personal selection of favourites that in some cases were only released as singles in the early years of the wild boys, before their big international breakthrough. The first 500 copies are numbered & very limited golden vinyl!
SHOCKING BLUE - LOVE BUZZ (2x10") - MOV10002
Shocking Blue from the Beat-scene of the Hague in the 1960s was the first Dutch band to have a #1 hit in the US, "Venus". After a number of other hits and international tours, the band sadly split in 1975. Their influence on music passed on to new generations; both Nirvana and The Prodigy covered the song "Love Buzz" at some time in their careers. 'Love Buzz', the new vinyl-only compilation released by Music On Vinyl, is a collection of their best hits! It's issued in a gatefold sleeve on two 10" with a swelteringly sexy poster of singer Mariska Veres. The first batch of 500 copies will be pressed on shockingly blue vinyl!

CRASH TEST DUMMIES - GOD SHUFFLED HIS FEET (1LP) - MOVLP496
Their second album meant their big break in the USA and Europe, thanks to the self-consciously bizarre lyrics and the deep baritone voice of singer/songwriter Brad Roberts, demonstrated in their worldwide top ten hit "MMM MMM MMM MMM". 'God Shuffled His Feet' was the band's most commercially successful album reaching the top of the Album charts in the USA (#9) and the UK (#2). To celebrate the first ever vinyl release of this album it contains an insert with lyrics.
DUSTY SPRINGFIELD - DUSTYâ€¦.DEFINITELY (1LP) - MOVLP511
Dusty Springfield was England's greatest pop diva and a remarkable performer. Her influence stretches on to the singers of today. With their towering beehives, panda-black mascara, sultry intimacy and heartbreaking voices, they all owe a huge debt to Dusty. 'Dustyâ€¦Definitely', for the first time released in 1968, is considered one of her best albums. Her cover of "Take A Little Piece Of My Heart" and the Motown-styled "Ain't No Sun Since You've Been Gone" were produced by a young John Paul Jones (who had just gained fame with Led Zeppelin).
