After Tea: A Little Bit Today, A Little Bit Tomorrow / Blues Ride (1969)

the last dutch nugget for tonight, heres a killer 45 by late 60s after tea. the a-side is a quite elaborated number that alternates between almost sinister psychedelic guitar licks and somewhat more popish vocals. not 100%, but still a very good song.
the b-side, however knocks it all off. a slow, killing blues number that continues that “sinister” feeling that i described the a-sides guitar theme with. a six minutes psychedelic blues blaster, this stuff is well worth checking out, as it comes very close to the style of brainbox and such likes, definitely far away from lemon coloured honey tree and showing the bands developement away from beat and sunshine pop toward some harder and more progressive sounds.
so much for now, you may expect slightly less posts from now on as my holidays are over and my studies start again, so free time is limited now, as is my time for working on this blog. please come and visit the site despite that, i will not be gone completely! see you next weekend with some mixed-bag stuff…

    This 45 defied my 0-25-50-75% scanning method. So I let the whole thing play through twice this time. I like it— thanks for all the Dutch rock!

  2. wow, im glad you like it.
    seems like i myself am getting obsessed with those be-ne-lux and french rockers… but its not a bad kind of obsession, its great – and i can share it with you!
